Making Friends, Beds and a Difference



For the second year in a row, we were honored to participate in the University of Richmond (UR) Law School‘s orientation day for first-year law students. As these men and women prepare to embark on a first-class educational journey together, many of them were meeting one another for the first time. On the morning of August 15th, we had the opportunity to meet and serve alongside a group of these students.


Thanks to our awesome donors and the wonderful volunteers from UR, we made sure 25 children, who woke up without a bed of their own on the morning of August 16th, would go to sleep in a brand new bed of their own that night.

Here‘s what we learned:

When community forms around an idea, task or mission, something beautiful happens:

  • People discover one another in new and more meaningful ways.

  • Strangers become acquaintances and friends.

  • We’re reminded that those we serve are human beings just like us.

  • EVERYBODY WINS!
