WOODSTOCK, Va. -- A volunteer farm in was on the verge of closing, but now, since a story aired about their closing on WHSV, the farm owners have received $48,000 in donations. The manager said now the farm seems like it will keep running.

The volunteer farm grows fruits and vegetables for people in need and they have donated more than 80 tons of food to people all over the state, just this year.

With the lack of support, they feared closing this year, but the farm's manager said since their story aired on WHSV, they received more than 60 donations! He said the support has been overwhelming and a blessing for them.

He said it will take a lot more help to continue the farm's operation next year. If you'd like to donate to the volunteer farm, here are all the ways you can help:
