Tidewater Corvette Club gives back to community
The Tidewater Corvette Club, a local social and civic organization, has donated $1,500 to the Virginia Peninsula Food Bank.
The group was established in 2007 to bring Corvette admirers together. Since that time, the organization has also worked within the community to raise funds and collect food items for those in need. Their recent donation to the Peninsula Food Bank, located at 2401 Aluminum Ave., in Hampton, was a 50 percent increase over the donation the group made to the food bank last year.
A major fundraising event for the group is an annual car show with participation from regional Corvette clubs and other vintage vehicles.
The Tidewater Corvette Club also supports civic efforts by working with religious organizations to provide Thanksgiving baskets for those in need, as well as with the Marine Corp to support the Toys for Tots campaign.
"We are strongly tied to our community and feel that it is both a responsibility and duty to give back," said James Canady, president of the Tidewater Corvette Club, in a press release.
"Our members believe in our civic activities and the community can expect consistency in support from our organization," said Shelia Faison, assistant treasurer, in the release.
