Support the Community

Posted on

Chesterfield, VA. March 26, 2020 – Our community has been faced with a challenging time given our current environment. We understand the impact that COVID-19 has had on our families and students. From schools closing for the remainder of the academic school year and halting educational opportunities to families facing economic instability and food insecurity, the hardships many are facing are not going unnoticed. A lot has been thrown at Chesterfield County and the world during these last two weeks. However, even with all of that, we still have people asking, “How can we support our community members in need?”
