ALLEGHANY COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Thursday morning, Feeding Southwest Virginia will present both the Alleghany Highlands and Covington School Systems each with 900 gift cards generously donated by Kroger and Food Lion, valued at $40,000.

Eligible families will receive one gift card per child to assist with food and other grocery needs. Feeding Southwest Virginia is working with the two school systems to determine the eligibility of families.
