Assurance Partner Gives Back With Charitable Souls Foundation

Assurance Partner Recognized for Commitment to Community Giving

Assurance Partner Amy Rybar Menefee, CPA was featured in the “Heroes Among Us” TV special with WTVR CBS 6 where she was recognized for her longstanding dedication to the Richmond community’s underserved and houseless populations through her nonprofit organization, Charitable Souls Foundation.

Since the Foundation was founded in 2001, volunteers have logged more than 4,000 hours in the community which includes distributing more than 800 holiday gift bags; more than 2,500 children’s books to children in transitional housing, and about 2,200 sleeping bags to the city’s houseless population.

“Non-profit founders jumped into action after seeing a need right outside their door” Excerpt:

“Amy Rybar Menefee and Mike Menefee never forget their roots. While studying in 2000, the pair and two friends saw a need right outside their front door.

Mike and Amy were troubled watching men and women sleeping outside in the bitter cold.

“You know Monroe Park is where everything started for Charitable Souls,” Amy said.

“We would walk through Monroe Park and see people without even a blanket so we would give them something extra and that is really how it started,” Mike added. “We’ve been at this for well over 20 years and we’re going to keep trucking.”
