Can you believe we’re already into fall and Thanksgiving is right around the corner? At Chester Skateland, we love this time of year and we’re grateful to be healthy, happy, and home for the holidays. But we also know that there are a lot of good people out there who aren’t as lucky. This holiday season, we plan to help out as much as we can and we hope you do too!
There are so many ways to give back you your community and luckily, it’s never been easier. So, let’s help our neighbors in need and make this holiday season one to remember for everyone in our Chester family! Check out some of these great local charities in the Richmond area that you can donate to during the holiday season!
Salvation Army of Central Virginia/Toys for Tots
This is a great way to give to a reliable non-profit that has been helping the Richmond area for years. They assist thousands of low-income families every year. They are also the main intake center for the area’s Toys for Tots program.
The Richmond Christmas Mother Fund
This is one of the big donation programs in Central Virginia and is run in part by the Salvation Army. They take donations ranging from toys and clothing to food baskets, meals, and transportation needs.
Have a Heart 4 The Homeless
This charity collects food, clothing, and other items. Their holiday donation program is only for homeless people in the Richmond area. That means your donations will go directly toward benefiting people in our community.
These are just a few options out there in our region. Of course, you’re always welcome to come by and have a little fun with us at Chester Skateland after you help your neighbors, too! We’ll help you get started with a lesson and then set you loose during our open skating times! Give us a call to find out more about donations this Thanksgiving and open skating times with us in Chester, Virginia.
