    Can't. Wait.
  • Just to be clear;

     

    The only way you can get the Greek fries is to bring an item to donate. We want to collect as many items as possible so bring an item so you can have the complete meal all for $5

    I know that with the game on Wednesday and the white party on Thursday there is a lot going on but we would love to be able to raise $500+ with this drive during a time that food pantries really need it. 

    Please donate here http://vad.aidmatrix.org/vfdhtml.cfm?driveid=7818 and remember that if you donate $25+ dinner will be on us on 8/10/13

    To put it in perspective, Every $25 you donate feeds a family of four for three DAYS.
