2019 Annual Report – The Work YOU Helped to Make Possible
While we reflect on the growth and change that 2019 brought, we also can’t deny the fact that 2020 has already been a time of trial, adjustment, and working together to aid our region during one of the most critical times we have ever faced.
The world has changed from what we once knew – some individuals are facing financial and economic strains, some have been laid off or placed on furlough, and others are adjusting to a new normal of working remotely, even if that remote work is only for a short season.
While the fight in Southwest Virginia has certainly changed to new ways that we never could have anticipated, we want to acknowledge that our ongoing work with our corporate partners has not. Thanks to already formed and trusted relationships, as well as new partnerships that are being made each day, we are able to address the region’s most pressing needs and provide relief efforts across the region.
Because of the support from friends like YOU, we are able to press on. We are able to fight for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in Southwest Virginia during a time when long term-relief and aid is needed the most. Thanks to YOU, we will continue to fight on behalf of our region.
We are so excited to release our 2019 Annual Report to reflect all of the great work that YOU have helped to make possible. As we carry on this fight together, we will continue to make a difference in Southwest Virginia in the coming days. We couldn’t do this without you.
