Corona Virus Update March 31 – Please Read
I’m sure you are all aware that Governor Northam yesterday issued a “stay at home” order for the state of Virginia.
We have decided to stick with our current plan of keeping the workshop closed until Tuesday, April 14th at the earliest, although it is looking likely that we may need to stay closed a little longer than that. We will also not be accepting any donations until that date. We will reassess that decision over the weekend of April 11th and let you know if we deem it necessary to stay closed any longer than that.
From the Heart is a non-profit charitable organization and, as such, is exempt from the part of the ruling which states all non-essential business close. However, it is important that we realize the ban on meetings of 10 people or more DOES apply. Please carefully consider this when planning on whether or not to hold your next local meeting.
Thank you so much for continuing From the Heart’s mission, from the comfort of your home, during this time. Once this passes, it will be lovely to see you all at the workshop again.
From our humble beginnings…
…in a Starbucks coffee shop in 2001, to our close to 1,800 member base today, the volunteer organization From the Heart continues its charitable mission.
From the Heart is involved in numerous projects, from making chemo hats for local cancer centers, preemie baby hats for the tiniest of our recipients, sleeping bags and warm mitten sets for the homeless in the Richmond community.
Heart volunteers are constantly finding new opportunities to help, and encourage anyone who knows of an unmet need in the community to please bring it to our attention.
We invite anyone interested in joining our cause to join us by email, web site, or check the latest newsletter for our schedule and just show up!
