CarMax Volunteers

We are grateful to this volunteer crew from CarMax. They spent four hours working in our office on southside and the storage room at U-Turn on the west side of town. This wasn't easy work. They built shelves, moved furniture, cleaned out offices used for storage and organized the toys, books, blankets, snacks and crafts generously donated by you over the summer. Of course, the most meaningful project was when they filled the Heroes Backpacks. They carefully picked each toy, book or stuffed animal knowing that we would give the Heroes Backpack to a child or teen when they first learn that they have cancer. Words no parent expects to hear. Thank you to Jay Bostain, our contact in Richmond, for arranging the team.
