With your help, we raised $2,254 and donated all of the proceeds to the following charities: The Montgomery County Christmas Store, NRV Senior Services, The Women’s Resource Center, The Humane Society of Montgomery County, our local food bank and The Angel Tree. Check out the items donated! By giving to this program, Foxridge residents, staff and our contractors have demonstrated the true meaning of the Holiday season. Again, thank you to all whom contributed and may your days be joyful.

Congratulations to our winners of the Special Holiday Gift Raffle! - Jordan, Jonathan, Emily and Foxridge & Hethwood Apartment Homes.


Duck Pond

NO ONE is allowed in or on the pond for any reason. Even when the pond may appear to be frozen over, there is no way to check the thickness and consistency of the ice. Please do not risk your safety. Along the same lines, we ask that no one throw rocks into the pond. Not only does this create a weaker “shoreline” by removing the border, but it also costs the community and ultimately each residents. It creates a budget expense as we may have to dredge the rocks out of the center and reinforce the bank. We have also agreed to allow Blacksburg Fire and Rescue to conduct training at our pond when it has frozen over. We have offered the use of our pond to the Blacksburg Rescue Squad. When our pond freezes you may see the rescue squad completing pond rescue drills. This could be completed several times during the winter months. The area will be clearly marked with emergency vehicles and signage stating that it is only a drill.

Safety Tips

As darkness comes earlier in the evenings it is important to remember a few key pedestrian safety tips.

  • When possible use sidewalks or trails and do not walk in the roadways. Always use crosswalks when available.
  • If a sidewalk, trail or crosswalk is not available walk in the roadway closest to the curb and look both ways before crossing the street.
  • If it is necessary to walk in roadways, walk facing oncoming traffic.
  • If walking after dusk wear light colored clothing or a reflective vest to be more visible to motorists.
  • Put down your cell phones and avoid wearing your headphones if it is necessary to walk in the roadway. Using these can distract you from what is going on around you.
