DOAV Donates Peanuts to Feed More

The Virginia Department of Aviation orders supplies for annual events, but this year things have been very different to say the least. With most events being cancelled so far in 2020, there are a lot of supplies in the warehouse that won’t get used until next year and some will go out of date and need to get thrown away. PR Specialist Kim Wells wanted to be sure that supplies didn’t get wasted and so the idea to donate bags of peanuts, normally distributed at fly-ins, airshows and tradeshows, seemed like the perfect opportunity to provide some relief to those in need right now.

DOAV Director Mark Flynn thought this idea was stellar and was happy to take part in the peanut donation. He helped load up 16 boxes of Virginia peanuts into the agency van and the boxes were dropped off at Feed More in Richmond on June 10, 2020.
