About

History

The Alumni Charity Challenge was established in 2013 by VCU Alumni’s RVA GOLD chapter. During the past three years, the Alumni Charity Challenge has collected over 10 tons of canned goods with the support of over 27 colleges from in-state and out-of-state. The Central Virginia Food Bank serves 31 counties and five cities, from the Northern Neck to Louisa County and south to the North Carolina border.

Uniting alumni chapters

The partnership with the Central Virginia Food Bank is a continuation of the VCU Alumni RVA GOLD Chapter’s ongoing mission to serve the Richmond community through outreach. This event was established with the hopes of becoming the catalyst mobilizing all alumni chapters in Virginia to provide ongoing support to the Central Virginia Food Bank through raising awareness, educating a unified Richmond community and collecting canned goods to actively fight food insecurity in Central Virginia.
