CFDRR would like to thank the 58 guests who celebrated with us at our 25th Anniversary Open House on Sept. 10! The celebration included speakers and spontaneous sharing of stories highlighting CFDRR’s history of impact. CFDRR held a surprise $2,500 grant drawing in recognition of nonprofit organizations that are so vital in helping CFDRR connect donors to the resources and causes important to them and our community. Congratulations to the Virginia Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, serving Danville-Pittsylvania County, winner of the drawing! CFDRR’s 25th Anniversary Fundraising Campaign will run until Dec. 31, with the goal of raising $25,000.

Caswell County Parish, 2020 Community Foundation of the Dan River Region Competitive Grant Recipient
“Families faced with termination of utility service or who have empty tanks and no funds with which to buy LP gas or oil or kerosene are in crisis, especially in cold weather when it comes down to the possibility of having to leave the home to stay warm and preserve food. The stress level of those coming in for assistance is extremely high and the relief they exhibit when a plan is finally devised and assistance is provided is immense. There are tears and many expressions of gratitude. These are not people who casually check to see what is available. Their backs are against the wall. They are not between a rock and a hard place. They are ON the rock with nowhere else to turn. We are their last resort.”
