Twelve charities in the Harrisonburg, Virginia region felt the impact of 45 volunteers who gave their time for the fifth annual Everence® Week of Generosity. In addition to the volunteer hours, Everence donated a total of $2,500 to the organizations.

From Oct. 21-27, Everence members volunteered at a variety of organizations, doing work such as helping at a thrift store, writing donor thank you notes, and encouraging reading among children.

For every volunteer that participated in the Week of Generosity, Everence donated $50 to the organization where the volunteer worked.

Local organizations who benefitted from the Week of Generosity include:
