STREAM LOCKN’ LIVE TODAY: Benefit for the Heal Charlottesville Fund
A BENEFIT FOR THE HEAL CHARLOTTESVILLE FUND
Ben and Jerrys
The Charlottesville Area Community Foundation (CACF) has established the Heal Charlottesville Fund to support both immediate needs and longer-term reconciliation and healing efforts.
As an immediate step, the Fund will work with local mental health providers to provide access to trauma and mental health services for residents, and ensure that residents are aware of this opportunity. It will also support victims injured in the car attack who may need assistance with medical expenses.
The LOCKN’ Festival is supporting the Fund by making it easy for fans to donate via text message. Fans in attendance of watching at home on the webcast can text “LOCKN” to 444999 to donate any amount they wish.
All donations are tax-deductible, and administered by HeadCount.org. HeadCount is a non-profit civic engagement organization that also runs the “Participation Row” social action village at LOCKN’. This year, 16 non-profit organizations will be featured at LOCKN’s Particpation Row, including 10 based in Charlottesville or Nelson County. A full list can be found here.
Ben & Jerry’s is sponsoring both the webcast and Participation Row. They’ll be giving free scoops of ice cream to any LOCKN’ attendee who visits Participation Row and takes actions with the various non-profit organizations.
