Community Korner

A place where everyone is welcome

The Village Produce and Country Store, Inc. believes giving back to the communities where we live and work is one of our core values. With a diverse variety of fundraising activities, The Village Produce and Country Store will contribute to community and charitable organizations and events. Requests must be received at least 20 business days prior to the date of your event. The Ogburn Station community will be the recipients of our charity dollars. Unfortunately, it is not possible to honor all requests even though most are very worthwhile causes. Organizations are asked to limit their requests to one per calendar year.
