Jeeps

Organizers invite the public to participate in Jeeping 4 Others, a Jeep parade through town that also will raise money for others. It will be held Saturday, May 30 with participants meeting at the Southern Virginia Higher Ed Center at 10 a.m.

A group of individuals have teamed up with the organization Misunderstood to “Jeep for others” on Saturday, May 30, by joining together, riding throughout the community in a variety of Jeeps in an attempt to bring joy to the community while raising funds to help those in need.

Participants are being asked to make a minimum donation of $25, and 20% of the funds raised will be used for Misunderstood while the rest will go to help individuals and families in the community impacted by the coronavirus and house fires.

They plan to meet at the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center at 10 a.m. then leave at 11 a.m. heading up Main Street toward Walmart before continuing the route. They plan to take a break at Sheetz at 3:30 p.m. and finish the ride at the World of Sports at 6 p.m.

Riding the entire route will be by choice, according to Anthony Womack of Misunderstood, and he said anyone is welcome to participate.

He also said the entire route would be posted online soon, and if anyone wants the Jeep parade to come by a home, business or neighborhood, contact Womack by phone or email.
