Embrace Richmond is joining this year’s Amazing Raise, a 36-hour fundraising event hosted by the Community Foundation in Richmond. It’s THE perfect opportunity to give back and make an impact on the communities we serve.
Watch our new video to see first-hand how your donations are impacting our communities:
Essie Reinke, the 2015 Dream Catcher Project coordinator seen in the video above, said, “It was fascinating to see how so many neighbors all shared the same dreams for their neighborhood and how empowering it was when they learned that others cared about the same things they cared about.”
- In Broadwater: It was teen and children’s activities that inspired people to get involved.
- In Hillside: It was the desire to keep children safe that united the neighbors.
- In Shady Hill: It was a desire for community beatification that sparked the passion of the neighbors.
- In Lincoln Mews: It was the dream of a more respectful, healthy environment that led people to commit.
- In Battery Park: It was the dream of economic revitalization that moved neighbors to action.
- In North Central: It was the desire for greater community unity that got neighbors excited.
You can be a part of making these dreams come true during the Amazing Raise, which begins at 6 a.m. Sept. 16 and ends at 6 p.m. Sept. 17. Click here to get started.
