Community Support

Every quarter, Genito Presbyterian chooses an area of special need in the community or region which will be the focus of greater prayer and thoughtful giving. Our most recent projects were:

Madeline's House (Southside Center for Violence Prevention) 

We collected donations of household goods and money to stock the temporary shelter provided for those in imminent danger from domestic and sexual violence.

 

                                           Ronald MacDonald House Charities of Richmond

                                           We assembled activity packs for the Happy Wheels program. These packs                                             of small toys and entertaining activities are provided to families who wait                                             long hours in the pediatric wards of local hospitals.

 

Our fourth quarter project is purchasing clothing, diapers, and supplies for Afghan refugee children at Fort Pickett, Virginia.

Other non-profits we have recently supported include:

Free Clinic of Powhatan                              Backpacks of Love                            Powhatan Christmas Mother
