Our R&A team believes in giving back and being an active member of the community. It is one of our core passion projects! Over the last decade, we have chosen to donate our time, professional services and financial resources in support of various philanthropic organizations.
Over the past 10 consecutive years, we have been largely involved with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital ® and its annual Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer. As a cause we care deeply about, we have raised and donated nearly $150K to date and look forward to reaching new heights in the years to come. St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies of cancer and neither will we.
In addition to St. Jude, we have also helped organizations like the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and The Eastern Shore, Troopster, Communities in Schools of Hampton Roads, United Way, VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads, ForKids, Virginia Beach SPCA and many others.
As a result of contributions like these, R&A was also named a 2014 Corporate VOLUNTEER Excellence Award honoree.

ABOUT OUR SUPPORTED ORGANIZATIONS
ST. JUDE CHILDREN’S RESEARCH HOSPITAL®
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Together, we are helping them drive the overall survival rate of childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade. Each year, supporters nationwide join together in the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer. This family-friendly walk/run helps raise funds to support the lifesaving mission of the hospital, where no family ever receives a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food. It commences in September, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, with local events happening across the country and right here in Hampton Roads. We have proudly earned the #1 fundraiser spot in Hampton Roads for the past seven years. It makes us feel alive to join arms with others in the fight against childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Learn more about the hospital and how you can get involved, too. St. Jude is Finding cures. Saving children. ®
FOODBANK OF SOUTHEASTERN VIRGINIA AND THE EASTERN SHORE
The Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore is one of the 200 network member food banks of Feeding America®, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief charity. You can support the Foodbank in many ways: donating food, funds or time. We are honored to support the Foodbank as a previous sponsor of their Taste of Hampton Roads event, as well as food donations through the Mayflower Marathon each November (over 1,673 pounds since 2015). Additionally, R&A volunteers its time, providing meals to local individuals and families in need. Each of these efforts helps to eliminate hunger in our community.
We are always looking to help nonprofits in the Hampton Roads community, or nationwide. If you know of an organization that would be interested in working with us, we’d love to hear from you!
