At Plow & Hearth, we love giving back and doing good. Our team strives to make a positive impact on people, pets and the planet. It’s part of our culture, and important to our community and customers.
Through our People with Heart program, we support a variety of local and national organizations. As our customer, your purchase of “Gifts that Give Back” supports these efforts. Thank you for helping us help others…here’s to a better world for all of us!
Share endless joy with gifts that pay the love forward! This holiday season, your purchase of select gifts will help us support local, community-supported charitable organizations with a personalized goal of “neighbors helping neighbors.”
Our customers’ overwhelming support of last year’s campaign helped us realize all the good our company can do. And we want to do even more this holiday season! Thank you for helping us continue this special tradition. Learn more about the organizations your gifts will help below…
Madison Emergency Services Association Food Pantry
For each can of select Virginia Peanuts sold, we will donate $1 to the MESA Food Pantry. This organization is mostly volunteer supported, and the staff work tirelessly to help serve more than 6,300 individuals from 2,800 families per year. Our peanut supplier, Virginia Diner, has generously pledged to match each dollar up to $7,500.
For each one of our fun, fuzzy Animal Body Pillows sold, we’ll donate $1 to the B&GC in Madison, a safe and positive place for 200 kids ages 6-18 to hang out, grow and learn. Opened in 2008, the Club offers a variety of programs and activities to engage young people, build their self esteem and help them realize their full potential.
For each one of our Colonial Window Candles sold, we will donate $1 to Shelter for Help in Emergency (SHE). Founded in 1979 in Charlottesville VA, SHE gives peace, hope and safety to those experiencing domestic violence. SHE offers support through a combination of residential, community-based and outreach services.
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 were able to reach our goal for a total donation of $7,000.

National Forest Foundation
We’ve made caring for the environment a priority since we first opened in 1980. Together with our customers, we’ve already planted more than 3 million trees nationwide through our Campaign to Reforest America. Once again this year, for each one of our exclusive Pewter Ornaments you purchase, we will donate a tree seedling to the NFF.
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!
Plow & Hearth CEO Leslie Newton presents the check to Angie Gunter, C-ASPCA CEO.
