December is truly a magical month for the Noblemen. We touch the lives of thousands of local families in Hampton Roads through our annual Toy Drive and our Trolley Ride.

The Noblemen Toy Drive provides gifts to over 3000 less fortunate children in Hampton Roads. We place our Noblemen Toy boxes in hundreds of local businesses and collect thousands and thousands of new and unwrapped gifts. We then partner with numerous local organizations and non-profits who connect us with local children who truly need help at Christmas and we make sure they have one great holiday! The best part of our toy drive? We set up large gifting events to present the toys to their new owners and it is the children of The Noblemen and NobleWomen who give the toys away. Check out our video (below) to see some of the holiday bliss that we created this year!



 
 

The original "Noble Deed" that was performed by The Noblemen (known as the "Robin Hoods of Virginia Beach" at the time) was our Trolley Ride. The Noblemen raised $5000 in 1995 and after reading a newspaper article our founder and CEO, Al Midgett decided to use that money to provide Christmas to local families who had a child in hospice care through Edmarc Hospice for Children. The Trolley Ride is now our longest running annual event and we continue to spread holiday joy to families who have a child who is facing their last Christmas. It is a wonderful evening that is filled with a lot of different emotions. The families that we visit are always touched by the fact that there is a big group of people who just want to come to their home and share some love with their family during difficult times. It is us who receive the greatest gift of all though. All of our lives are changed as a result of this wonderful evening. Check out come pictures below.
