Despite the popular Christmas on MacArthur event being canceled in Bellevue this year during COVID-19, the Bellevue Merchants Association is still conducting their annual toy drive for Toys for Tots. The last day to drop off toys is tomorrow, December 16th.
Collection boxes for new, unwrapped toys can be found at Appliances on Lakeside, Classic Touch Catering, Dot’s Back Inn, Lakeside Farmers Market, Little House Green Grocery, Once Upon a Vine, Stir Crazy Cafe, and The Mill on MacArthur.
These toys go to the most vulnerable in our community and to families that otherwise may not be able to afford to provide holiday gifts for their families, especially after what has been a tough year for so many amid the pandemic.

Field Day RVA, a community fundraising event for the nonprofit organization Higher Achievement, presented by BrownGreer, is set to take place on Saturday, May 14, 2022 at 11 a.m. The event took a two-year pause due to the pandemic and has returned to the Richmond community this year.
The day-long event takes place at the Bon Secours Training Center, formerly known as the Washington Redskins Training Camp, located at 2401 West Leigh Street. Teams of five to nine people register to compete in field day events, including water balloon toss, relay races, capture the flag, corn hole, and tug of war, as well as enjoy prizes, music, beer, and food trucks. Previous years have been in attendance by Mayor Levar Stoney, Dominion Energy, ABC News teams, and community members all throughout Richmond.
“We were disappointed when our 2020 and 2021 events had to be postponed, but could not be more thrilled to be back this year. Higher Achievement Richmond has profound impacts on the middle school scholars within Richmond, and this event is a great way to support our mission,” said Katey Comerford, Executive Director for Higher Achievement Richmond.
