Hear Together: Drive To Work

Drive-To-Work is a Virginia non-profit, tax-exempt corporation. It assists qualifying low-income and previously incarcerated persons to restore driving privileges so they can drive to work and hold a job. Drive-To-Work’s goal is to restore driving privileges. Its services typically involve re-instatement of licenses or obtaining restricted driving permits, not defense of serious driving offenses. For these services consult other attorneys or if your gross income is too high to qualify, visitwww.rollinslawyer.com.

Hear Together: Lynchburg Grows

More than a quarter of Lynchburg residents live in a food desert, according to a study by the USDA, more than any other city in Virginia.  So Lynchburg Grows has risen to the challenge of using their 7 acres of farm to provide the community with CSA shares and low cost vegetables through their Veggie Van program. The work to get that food to the community comes from another piece of their mission: to provide meaningful work for people with disabilities. Listen to our interview with Executive Director Shelley Blade to find out how they work to keep Lynchburg residents fed well from their farm even during the dark winter months.
