zens of volunteers gave their time and talents to help some 18 organizations in and around Harrisonburg, during the second annual Everence Week of Generosity.

From Sept. 21 to 26, 2015, Everence members took on various tasks at their favorite charities. But the organizations received more than just a helping hand. Everence also donated $50 per volunteer to each organization where Week of Generosity participants went to work.

Local organizations benefitting from the Everence Week of Generosity include:

“Everence was founded 70 years ago to offer mutual aid to our community and members,” explained Joseph L. Lapp, Everence Managing Director. “Today, we are still committed to walking alongside our local community. Our Week of Generosity is an exciting way that our members and staff can make a difference in the lives of our neighbors.”
