Virginia Not-for-Profit Community Spotlights

The pandemic has changed the way we can serve the community but not our commitment.

Keiter’s Annual Community Day will look a little different this year with each team member participating in their own community support effort. We will also feature a selection of our nonprofit community partners on Keiter’s blog and social media platforms throughout the month of November.

On behalf of the entire Keiter team, thank you to all of our nonprofit organizations that have continued to help the Richmond and surrounding communities in small and big ways throughout this pandemic. Our team is really looking forward to returning to in person community involvement next year.


Ronald McDonald House charities – Richmond

RMHC Richmond supports programs that directly impact the health and well-being of children and their families.

When you change a child’s life, you change a family’s, which can change a community, and ultimately the world. RMHC Richmond strives to be part of that change and part of the solution in improving the lives of children and their families by providing programs that strengthen families during the most difficult times in their lives.

RMHC Richmond extends its reach and impact by leveraging our 40 years of experience and strong relationships with the Greater Richmond community and people in the field to continually help those in need.

During Keiter’s Annual Community Day and throughout the year, our team enjoys supporting RMHC Richmond in a variety of ways, including preparing meals and grab-n-go bags for families with a child receiving medical care in an area hospital.

You can join us in our support of RMHC Richmond’s programs and mission through gifts of time or monetary support. For more information, please visit their support web page. Looking for a way to help RMHC Richmond during the holidays? See their Holiday Wish List.


Lewis Ginter BOtanical Garden

Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden was founded in 1984 as a community oriented, non-profit garden. Today, the Garden is comprised of 82 acres and includes more than a dozen themed garden areas, including a ConservatoryChildren’s Garden and Kroger Community Kitchen Garden growing fresh produce for area food banks. In a typical year, the Garden welcomes and celebrates more than 450,000 guests, including 17,000 schoolchildren and 14,000 member households. A team of approximately 70 staff members are joined by 700 volunteers to make the Garden possible.

During Keiter’s Annual Community Day, our team has enjoyed volunteering at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, in a variety of ways from raking leaves to cutting back trees and brush in preparation for the Dominion Energy GardenFest of Lights.

You can join us in our support of the Garden’s programs and mission to connect people with plants to improve communities through gifts of time or monetary support. For more information, please visit their support web page.


Richmond Metropolitan Habitat for Humanity

Richmond Habitat for Humanity is committed to making affordable and safe housing a reality for low-income families. And with the help of donations, volunteers, proceeds from ReStore, and hard work from their home buyers, Richmond Habitat for Humanity is making that dream possible for hundreds of residents in the Richmond Metropolitan area.

The Richmond Habitat chapter joined the affordable housing effort in 1986. Since then, they’ve built more than 300 homes for deserving families. Along with their partner families, generous volunteers and donors, they have restored the hope and dignity that poverty housing often strips away.

During Keiter’s Annual Community Day, our team has enjoyed volunteering at Habitat for Humanity ReStore, nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories, building materials and more to the public at a fraction of the retail price.

You can join us in our support of the programs and mission of the Richmond Metropolitan Habitat for Humanity through donations, gifts of time, or monetary support. For more information, please visit their website.
