Companies reach out to CHF by holding charity and supply drives

Almost every week since Thanksgiving, an organization called our office to say they were hosting a benefit for CHF!  We've had an amazing outpouring of generosity with in-kind donations as well as financial contributions. Here's how they supported our Hero families:

  • American Tap Room picked Connor's Heroes as their first charity partner as they opened their first location in Richmond. Lisa, Steve, Emily and Connor invited their friends to join them for a meal in support of CHF. Lisa even rescheduled CHF's board meeting so the board could enjoy the Tap Room's new menu together. American Tap Room presented CHF with a check for $1,300.
  • MassMutual presented CHF with a check for $2,000 as the beneficiary of their “Pearls of Wisdom” seminar.
  • Richmond Claims Association members in Richmond held a backpack supply drive. They collected bikes, games, toys, and stuffed animals, plus they raised over $800 in cash and gift cards!
  • Top Notch Cheer & Gym asked all of their teams to collect donations and they delivered box upon box of wonderful gifts for our Heroes.
  • The Hurtubise Family threw their annual Christmas party and collected tons of gifts and donations to spread some cheer for our families.
  • The Accounting Department at McGuire Woods, for the third year in a row, adopted one of our families for Christmas, showering them with presents.
  • Last, but not least, RVA's music scene showed their support. Punks 4 Presents is a showcase of RVA's best punk bands happening at venues over town. Last year Punks for Presents raised over $5,000 for CHF. This year they hope to double it! 

If you'd like to organize a drive for CHF, call Erin at (804) 897-1272. Thanks for all the love, RVA!
