The Greater Charleston and Charleston/West Ashley offices volunteered with Habitat for Humanity. Agents graded land and rolled out sod for two new home sites. The offices also hosted a donation drive for Patriots Villas, an organization that helps local veterans in need.

 Chickahominy/New Kent Sales Office 

The Chickahominy office in New Kent, Virginia, rolled up their sleeves and donated non-perishable goods to the New Kent Little Free Pantry. The agents and employees helped their community by replenishing the food supply to this food pantry throughout June.
