Boxley’s Community Impact Goes Year Round

At Boxley, a company of Summit Materials, employees provide community support across Southwest Virginia by holding donation drives throughout the year. In 2023, we collected peanut butter for Food for Kids, essential items for Veterans Affairs through the Red Cross, and school supplies for a multitude of elementary schools.

Food For Kids

Our Support Center in Blue Ridge, Virginia, holds an annual peanut butter drive to support Food For Kids Weekend Pack-A-Sack. This program provides a bag of meals every weekend during the school year to eligible elementary school students to combat child hunger.

We offer further assistance by volunteering monthly to pack and deliver the bags to the various schools.

Fill the Bucket

2023 was our inaugural school supply donation drive; our employees showed up across all locations. After the two-week campaign at the end of August, our boxes overflowed—we had too many individual items to count!
