Community Outreach

PENNIES FOR PRESCRIPTIONS

Our Pennies for Prescription outreach program now supports the efforts of the Beach Free Clinic. Our small but steady donations help the less fortunate in our community to stay on their medications. Get your friends, families and co-workers involved. By making a difference in the community, everyone wins! Keep those pennies coming and many thanks for all your help.


Help Virginia Beach Schools Provide for At Risk Kids

Let’s work on our mission to bolster education in our hometown! Our contact with the VBCPS is Gay Thomas, daughter of former, long-time member Louise McManus. Gay is, also, the mainstay of our school system’s division of social workers. She says they have all the traditional school supplies they need for next semester. However! They are in need of socks and underwear. You can also donate GIFT CARDS TO: TARGET, WALMART, DOLLAR TREE, PAYLESS, and WASH LAND LAUNDROMAT.

Please, contribute to our AAUW Virginia Beach donation to help our at risk children get a good start on the school year!


AAUW Virginia Beach and REACH

AAUW Virginia Beach enriches the lives of local at risk and homeless children with new or gently used fiction and non-fiction books. We collect books anytime but, especially, bring them as gifts to our Holiday Banquet and, then, deliver them to REACH/Reading Enriches All Children: http://reachreads.org/. REACH’s mission is to promote literacy for children who are at-risk and homeless throughout Coastal Virginia.  REACH volunteers read to children at shelters and leave the children their own books, too. Help us help REACH. Monetary or book support advances our mission to educate and advocate for children.  Over the years, AAUW VB has given hundreds of books to REACH.
