Our business has helped to support Volunteer Hampton Roads because the great work they do to provide valuable services throughout our community. The support Volunteer Hampton Roads provides for the Southeastern Food Bank is amazing, and I am proud to have been a part of such a wonderful support system for a service that benefits families throughout our entire community.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Our company hosted a canned food drive to help support Volunteer Hampton Roads' Family Volunteer Day. Employees donated over 300 cans of sliced peaches and collected boxes for storing food the day of the event.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

My only hope is that more businesses will join the Corporate Volunteer Council of VOLHR.

I joined VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads as a representative on the Corporate Volunteer Council in 2009. Next year I will be Vice President of the CVC. Right away the staff of VHR made volunteerism available to CVC members and our company employees. We pitched in with the Back-to-School drive, and in 2010 I was a co-chair for the event. I served as a Team Captain at Family Volunteer Day in 2009 and will again this year. The impact of Family Volunteer Day is awe-inspiring. Companies collect food for 3-4 months before the event, and in 3-4 hours we have packed a week of groceries for 600 local families in need. VHR creates and executes impactful and accessible projects that benefit underserved people in our community. VHR is instrumental in matching resources for non-profits in need and willing volunteers.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Each summer 40+ companies collect school supplies to pack 300+ backpacks for Tidewater Youth Services; Boys & Girls Clubs; and Samaritan House, a local shelter. Each fall the companies of the CVC collect food for Family Volunteer Day. Employees at my company donated over 800 tuna cans. 700 volunteers pack 600 boxes of food for local families served by 13 shelter and food programs. The spirit of volunteerism is strong in our corporate community under the leadership of VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have corporations directly sponsor non-profits to become members; Many non-profits do not know the benefits of being members of VHR or cannot afford membership.
