The Appomattox County Militia, Community & Disaster Relief organization is running a Food, Clothing and Toy Drive for the upcoming Christmas Holiday to help those in need. 

Drop-off locations are being established, with AC Cycles, 144 Dove Lane, Spout Spring, and New Geneva Christian Center, 122 Harrell Street (downtown Appomattox), stepping up as the first volunteers for such collections. 

Any business interested in becoming a Drop-Off location can contact Appomattox County Militia at
