Our Service Area
Who We Serve
More than 130,373 friends and neighbors in our region live below the poverty line. Many more live at risk in economically vulnerable situations where a small bump in the road could be a disaster.
We believe that every individual in our region — particularly those who face longstanding disadvantages — deserves to be supported along the path to success. That’s why we invest in nonprofits, lead programs and bring together volunteers to serve tens of thousands of people in our area.
Basic Needs and COVID-19
COVID-19 left many people in our region without access to basic needs. As more households lost one or more of their primary sources of income, the needs continued to increase and agencies throughout Hanover began expending all their resources to support the community. We partnered with Hanover County to provide CARES Act funding to organizations, such as Beaverdam Food Pantry, that are supporting residents with food assistance and other basic needs.
