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 looked a little different in 2020 with each team member participating in their own community support effort. We will also featured 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.
The Richmond SPCA is a nonprofit, no-kill humane society in Richmond, Virginia. They stand for the principle that every life is precious.
At all times and in every way, they are advocates for animals. Richmond SPCA provides for animal safety and comfort, strives to alleviate animal suffering and works to place animals in homes that provide a responsible lifetime commitment to them. They speak out publicly to promote and defend animal interests. Richmond SPCA opposes all forms of animal cruelty.
Throughout the year, the Keiter team enjoys supporting Richmond SPCA in a variety of ways, including volunteering at the Robins-Starr Humane Center, busy season stress relief through Paws for Health, and sponsoring and attending the annual Fur Ball.
You can join us in our support of Richmond SPCA’s programs and mission through animal adoption, gifts of time or monetary support. You can also read adoption stories and learn more about the society on their blog.

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.
