Last year, Virtus Barbell set up a community outreach fund with the Greensburg FOP Lodge 56.
Through this year these funds have been used to hold two drive through children’s events and for Halloween treat bags that were distributed through the community by officers. Through the FOP, Greensburg Police officers also have access to the fund to directly aid children in the community they may encounter that are in need. Examples of use include, new shoes and socks, winter coats, beds and bedding, food, school supplies and an extensive list of other items distributed to the community.
It is a privilege to be able to work with the FOP and Greensburg Police to positively impact our community.
The Skull Returns Christmas Powerlifting meet is the primary fundraiser that makes these things possible.
Long story short, we cannot hold our meet this year. To create the largest donation possible, we need to pack the gym full of lifters and spectators. Currently, we do not feel that this is a responsible decision or possible within the current guidelines.
Last year with your help we raised over $3000. Our goal for this year is the same, but we are going to need more of your help. Keep your eyes peeled for details in the coming weeks on how to get involved
with this great charity.
We will be contacting lifters that have already sent in entry forms to arrange full refunds. We appreciate your understanding and continued support.
