Dear Downtown Friends & Neighbors,

In the aftermath of the horrific events that occurred in our neighboring town of Charlottesville, we as a community are ready to respond, to love, and to unite. 

Many community members have already taken action by donating financially or attending vigils. This is so inspiring to witness and we would like to join Harrisonburg together to make a collective impact.

All proceeds collected will benefit Unity Cville, a non-partisan group raising money for the medical costs incurred by victims of the August 12 rally.

HDR will collect funds between now August 26. For every $10 donated you will be entered into a drawing to receive a Downtown Thank you Gift Basket. See participating businesses below.
