#givingthanks to The Weight Room

There are few things that leave us speechless but The Weight Room (3413 Carlton Street, Richmond, VA 23230) got us this week. I received a brief call and on the other end the caller wanted to know what the best way to donate was. I told him and we ended the call. I was helping a participant through a crisis so I hung up and continued to do what I was doing.

A few hours passed and I checked the organization's emails and received notification of a donation. When I opened it to get the details, I was almost brought to tears. I took to social media to thank The Weight Room for their generous donation and received this response....

This made my heart smile, on a day when the outlook on the world was gloomy. I was pleasantly surprised and I really needed uplifting in that moment. Please support The Weight Room. This is a sacrifice that means the world to so many people. Visit their gym, become a member and support their efforts!!!

#GivingThanks to Soul Taco RVA

#givingthanks this morning to Soul Taco for hosting a fundraiser for Nolef Turns Inc. on June 4 & 5, 2020. They are temporarily serving at Kabana Rooftop due to the Novel Coronavirus restrictions on restaurants, so many thanks to them for having us.

I received a call from Trey, the owner of Soul Taco and he expressed to me that he wanted to support our organization. I know that small businesses have been hit extremely hard so I paused and said "wait, what about your business?" and all he said to me was "listen, God provides". Please continue to support their businesses! #grateful
