Shelter for Help in Emergency
Founded in 1979, Shelter for Help in Emergency (SHE) offers peace, hope and safety to those experiencing domestic violence. SHE works to support and empower victims of domestic violence through a combination of residential, community-based and outreach services.
The organization is based in Charlottesville, Virginia and also supports the surrounding counties of Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa and Nelson, providing services more than 400 adults and children annually. The average cost of a night of safety is $46 per person.
For Mother’s Day 2021, we pledged a portion of that weekend’s sales to SHE. Our goal was the equivalent of 150 safe nights. With our customers' help, we able to reach our goal for a total donation of $7,000.
Plow & Hearth CEO Leslie Newton presents the donation to Liesel Robinson, Community Engagement Coordinator at S.H.E.
Blue Ridge Area Food Bank
Since 2017, we’ve donated $28,500 and over 4,200 lbs. of food to help combat hunger. Donations are directed to BRAFB and our local MESA Food Pantry.
With our customers’ support, we were able to donate $24,838 to BRAFB in January 2021 through our 2020 Gifts That Give Back program.
For each can of select Virginia Peanuts sold October-December of 2020, we pledged to donate $1 with a goal of 15,000 cans. We beat our goal by selling 17,338 cans of peanuts. Plus, our peanut supplier, Virginia Diner, generously pledged and donated an additional $7,500.
Did you know that $1=4 meals? Our 2020 “Can Hunger” goal was 60,000 meals…and we surpassed that by providing approximately 99,000 meals.
Michael McKee, CEO of BRAFB accepts the donation from Leslie Newton, Plow & Hearth CEO.
We love our “fur babies!” Since 2018, we’ve donated $11,554 to the life-saving care and shelter of thousands of dogs and cats. Our donations are directed to the Charlottesville-Albemarles SPCA (a No-Kill organization) and the Madison County Animal Shelter.
With our customers’ support, we donated $9,054 to C-A-SPCA in January 2021 through our 2020 Gifts That Give Back program. For each one of our wildly popular Animal Body Hug Pillows sold October-December of 2020, we pledged to donate $1 to C-ASPCA.
The average cost of care for one animal per day is $25. Our recent donation can help provide a year’s worth of care, helping many animals find loving, permanent homes.
Thank you for helping us advance the compassionate care of animals!
We accept these payment methods, plus eGift cards.
