AREVA, Soccer Team Helping Area Food Bank

Bedford Co., VA - Every goal a local soccer team makes will help an area food bank meet its goal.

AREVA is sponsoring "JF Kicks for a Cause". For every goal the Jefferson Forest Boys Varsity Soccer team makes during a home game this season, the company will donate 50 dollars to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank's BackPack Program.

"For every goal that they score, it feeds four children. And for every four goals, it feeds a child for a year. So that's fantastic. We hope they score high," said Moriah Pertner of AREVA.

Through the BackPack Program, children who are at risk of going hungry take home backpacks filled with nutritious food each Friday and on the days before school vacations.
