The Foundation was very thankful last week to be able to deliver not one but TWO checks for local charities that assist our citizens with housing needs. The Foundation granted $2,500 to Rappahannock United Way to continue assisting with their eviction diversion program. The program assists those in danger of eviction with catching up on back-rent and paying off any fees so that they can stay in stable shelter.
SAWs of Virginia, which stands for Servants at Work, Inc, is a newcomer to this area and is already doing amazing work. They build inexpensive, durable wheelchair ramps to help free those housebound with disabilities or mobility issues. The Foundation awarded the group $1,500 to continue building more ramps throughout our region.
