EY Connect Day
EY Connect Day was October 6, 2017. A letter of appreciation was written on behalf of EY’s Tysons office:
On behalf of EY’s Tyson office, I’d like to thank the Powhatan Nursing Home for opening its doors to our volunteers on our annual day of service, EY Connect Day.
We’ve since received such positive feedback from our people about their experience.
At EY, community engagement is an integral part of our culture. We appreciate the opportunity to live our values by volunteering with you. Its’s through engaging with organizations like yours that we bring to life our firm’s purpose of building a better working world.
We value our relationship with Powhatan Nursing Home and we do hope to continue supporting you in the future.
Paws for a Cause
On Sunday, October 1, 2017, Powhatan was one of the sponsors at the annual Fairfax County Pets on Wheels fundraiser, Paws for a cause. Fairfax Pets On Wheels connects pets with people living in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Through their all-volunteer program, they donate more than 8,000 hours of pet visitation annually. Powhatan is fortunate to be one of the facilities that receive the services of this wonderful organization. Pets are known for their comforting abilities and Powhatan residents are grateful for the dedication of the Pets on Wheels volunteers.
Fairfax County Pets on Wheels sole fundraiser is the annual Paws for a Cause. The 22nd annual event was held on October 1 at Weber’s Pet Supermarket in Fairfax with over 90 walkers and their pets. The cute t-shirt was designed by George Mason University graphic art student. There was a raffle drawing for door prizes for all registrants and two $50 Weber’s Pet Supermarket gift certificates purchased for walkers who brought in pledges or donations to FPOW. Paws for a Cause provides funding for insurance, paperwork, and volunteer appreciation. It is essential for FPOW’s bottom line. For more information visit www.fpow.org
