Chamber challenge issued

In the spirit of Christmas, and fulfilling its mission in serving the community, the Buckingham Chamber of Commerce has agreed to donate $250 to the Yoder Family involved in the tragic accident on Friday.

The Chamber was told all four children are home as of yesterday.

“In doing this, Buckingham Chamber is challenging local businesses to do the same in donating funds toward the medical expenses, transportation, and other needs of the family,” said Chamber Vice President Thomas Jordan Miles III.

Make checks out to John Yoder and take cash or checks and mail checks to:

Wise Ridge Country Store, 34 Wise Ridge Road (on U.S. Route 15 South), Dillwyn, VA 23936.

“Most importantly, we ask you to continue to pray for the Yoder Family, the Lee Family, and others affected by this accident,” Miles said.
