The YMCA at Virginia Tech is proud to participate in the Blacksburg Bucks program. You’ll get a lot of bang for your bucks when you spend them at the Y Thrift Shop!
A new gift certificate program called Blacksburg Bucks will kick off the holiday season and offer a much-needed boost to local businesses.
Gift certificates can be purchased beginning Friday, November 20 at any of the six Blacksburg National Bank locations. Cash or Check only. No Saturday sales. Use your Blacksburg Bucks at the YMCA Thrift Shop!
