Watering volunteers sought

Due to the current drought, Healthy Harvest Food Bank needs volunteers to water new plantings at the new building every day until we get rain. This could be early morning or late evenings. Please call or email Kathy – 804-577-0246 or if you can help.

Don’t wait, check the date and replace your smoke alarms that are over 10 years old. Smoke detectors should be replaced every 10 years. Richmond County Department of Emergency Services and RCVFD have partnered with The American Red Cross to bring FREE smoke detectors to the citizens of Richmond County. Call 804-333-5089 to schedule your installation!
