Join the Rockers Celebrating Christmas in July

By Old Dominion, Salvation partner in July 15 food drive, 07/14/21, 4:00PM EDT


    Old Dominion Freight Line will present Christmas in July at the Rockers’ home game on Thursday, July 15 at 7:05 p.m.

    Christmas in July is a non-perishable food drive to benefit the Salvation Army. 

    Fans who bring three or more non-perishable food items for donation to the Salvation Army to the High Point Rockers’ baseball game on Thursday, July 15th at 7:05 p.m. will receive complimentary admission courtesy of Old Dominion Freight Line.

    Gates at Truist Point open beginning at 6:00 p.m. on July 15.  Old Dominion volunteers will be on hand to collect the food items at the gate.

    Old Dominion’s relationship with the Salvation Army runs deep. Each holiday season, OD sponsors a series of complimentary concerts that serves as a major collection point for canned food.

    Summer time is an important time to donate non-perishable items to the Salvation Army. With children out of school and spending more time at home, the need for food increases and the Salvation Army’s pantries need to be re-stocked this time of year.

    In December, the Fox8/Old Dominion Triad Holiday concerts collect more than 300,000 non-perishable canned food items for those in need. As we celebrate the mid-way point to Christmas on the calendar, it’s important that we continue our collection efforts.

    The 2021 Triad Holiday Concert Series will be in Burlington on Dec. 12, in Greensboro on Dec. 17 and in Winston-Salem on Dec. 18. The holiday concerts performed by local symphonies are free of charge with a non-perishable food donation to the Salvation Army.
