ABINGDON, VA – United Way is proud to team with Food City to host the seventh annual Celebrity Bagging Event in support of their annual fundraising campaign. The event includes Food City locations in Johnson City, Bristol, Jonesborough, Gray, Elizabethton, Piney Flats and Blountville, TN and Bristol, Abingdon, Damascus, Marion, Chilhowie, Galax and Lebanon, VA and will take place on Tuesday, November 26, 2013 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
Local celebrities from throughout the region have volunteered their time and talents to bag groceries at the participating Food City locations. Shoppers who wish to do so can make a contribution to the United Way at the checkouts, via collection containers; or they can elect to have their contribution conveniently added to their grocery total. All donations will benefit area United Way Campaigns. The United Way allocates resources to member agencies that address the most pressing human service needs.
