Eastmont Community Foundation

As originally broadcast on December 16, 2020, on Blue Ridge PBS …

Mountain Valley Charitable Foundation has made eastern Montgomery County, Virginia, the “community that could.” Over the last 15 years MVCF has redeveloped an abandoned nursing home into a wellness center, community center, museum and library; transformed an old fire station into a food pantry and thrift shop; created Old Town Fields concert venue out of a former high school football field; and founded the Eastmont Tomato Festival.

But with all their many ventures that go by different names — plus the added confusion of the controversial Mountain Valley Pipeline — MVCF was looking for a makeover.

Guiding the nonprofit with a pro bono rebranding are our friends from Wordsprint, who helped Mill Mountain Zoo in Episode 3.
