The VLP team is passionate about being involved in our community and supporting causes that we feel strongly about. Throughout the year we support quite a few charitable events and causes and we would like to invite you to join us in supporting any cause you feel passionate about.
A list of our upcoming charitable events is available on our Events Page. You can see pictures of us participating in past events on our Facebook Page - let us know if you are interested in joining us in any of our charitable endeavors!
Many families travel far from home and spend several weeks or months to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children – a long time to be away or to divide a family. The Ronald McDonald House of NOVA provides a place for families to call home so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little to no cost.
Enjoy cooking? Join us to make a meal for the families at the Ronald McDonald House.
During the months of November and December, our team collects and assembles care packages of supplies to be donated to the Bethany House of Northern Virginia. If you would like to donate items, please drop them by our office.
