Power of Good RVA Campaign Celebrates Local Volunteers

The Richmond region is home to countless people who freely give their time and talents to foster a community where everyone can thrive. During National Volunteer Month this April, the Power of Good RVA campaign is celebrating those individuals and groups who have demonstrated an inspiring dedication to service in the past year.

Now in its 8th year and led by HandsOn Greater Richmond (a service of the Community Foundation) in partnership with the Greater Richmond Association for Volunteer Administration, the Power of Good RVA regional volunteer recognition campaign asks the public to submit the name of a person or group who is “powering good” in Greater Richmond through service – a neighbor, a volunteer, a colleague, a family member or friend, a church group, etc. Power of Good Honorees are displayed at the Power of Good RVA webpage and will be featured on social media by HandsOn (@handsonrva on Instagram and Facebook) throughout April and beyond.

“This past year especially, volunteers have been so critical to our resilience as a region. Volunteers have been delivering meals, sewing and distributing masks, and supporting virtual learning by mentoring, tutoring, and providing encouragement, appreciation and supplies for students and teachers — plus so much more,” said Gail Cavallaro, Volunteer Program Manager for the Community Foundation. “We want to thank as many people as we can for everything they’ve done for our community.”

Anyone who wants to honor someone who serves our community in any capacity can submit a Power of Good Honoree here. The HandsOn website also has a Nonprofit Toolkit for any organization looking to participate in the campaign.
