Description

 

Jeremy Herbstritt was a 1998 Bellefonte Area High School graduate who loved life and the outdoors. He, and 31 other students and professors, were killed during a mass shooting on April 16, 2007 at Virginia Tech University in Blacksburg, Virginia. 

Herbie’s Home “Town Loop” was created by Jeremy's family and friends in 2007 to remember and honor him, and give something back to the community who gave so much to them in their time of grief. 

Funds raised from this year’s HHTL will benefit VTVCare and a local family (Popovitch) in need.

VTVCare is an endowment fund created by the VTV Family Outreach Foundation designed to provide financial assistance to mass shooting survivors nationwide to help cover long-term trauma-related medical and mental health care expenses that insurance and other governmental programs do not cover. For more information on VTVCare, please visit www.vtvcare.org 

On May 21, 2023, 19 year old, Haley Popovitch, Bellefonte, suffered severe 3rd degree burns over 50-60% of her body after tripping and falling into a fire pit at her home. She was life flighted to Lehigh Valley Burn Center for extensive treatments. Your donations will help her family cover medical treatments and recovery bills. Haley will have a long journey ahead of her but we are optimistic of her pushing through this very difficult time.
