The Langley for Families Foundation has donated $75,000 to local organizations that focus on family issues in the Hampton Roads area. The nine recipients mark the Foundation's first grant awardees since launching last December. Monies were raised through various fundraising activities during the year.
"The volunteers worked very hard to raise money this first year, and the results enabled the Foundation to help the selected local agencies to feed, house and support thousands of people in Hampton Roads. Langley for Families is encouraged by the support of sponsors and individual donators who made the fundraising events a success. People want to help and give. They trust the Foundation will be a good steward of the money and ensure the funds help those in need."
—Marilyn Kuhn, Chairperson, Langley for Families
