Packing night beats last year's record

GALAX, Va. - Hundreds of people volunteer for packing night at the Galax Fire Department.

It's for the Community Christmas Food Fund.

The goal is to raise $30,000 to provide 1,100 food boxes for more than 500 area families in need.

"All of a sudden these folks are going to get two big fat boxes to take them through the holiday season. Its nothing more than the community we live in, Galax the twin counties giving back, its absolutely awesome," Mike Ayers, Captain of Galax Fire Department, said.

They packed 1,100 boxes, Thursday night, in one hour and 2 minutes beating last year's time of one hour and 13 minutes.
