During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Please join us as we come together as neighbors to shine the light of hope as a community and across the great state of VA! We will light luminaria in memory and in honor of those who have fought cancer on Sunday evening, September 20, 2020. The funds raised will support the efforts of the American Cancer Society, dedicated to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.
Due to COVID-19, Cancer patients and researchers need us now, more than ever.
