IT TAKES A VILLAGE
  F.A.C.T. is a community trust  that is well supported by outstanding individuals, businesses, and groups right here in our own backyard. This month, we want to thank The Cape Henry Rotary Club and the King's Daughters Circle of Birdneck Point for choosing FACT to be a beneficiary to their kindness. It is organizations such as theirs that solely exist simply to help others in need. We admire their hard work and their dedication to  FACT. and for making Hampton Roads an all-around better place to live.
A well-deserved shout-out goes to Il Giardino's for making FACT the beneficiaries to their recent "Dine for the Cause" event, donating 10% of the night's sales to FACT. It's great to know our neighbors have our backs!
  DONOR SHOUT OUT
The Sandler Family Foundation and Sandler Family of companies have been generously supporting our programs for 15 years now. Each year, they host a charity golf tournament at The Signature at West Neck Golf Course. This meticulously run event benefits only a few choice charities, one of them being FACT! We are extremely grateful for Art and Steve Sandler, along with all of the employees and volunteers who help to make this event such a great success year after year. 
   NEIGHBORS HELPING NEIGHBORS
We would also like to recognize the Honorable Westbrook Parker and The Camp Family Foundations for inviting FACT to be a part of their benevolent nature. The Camp Foundation was formed by the founders of Camp Manufacturing Co. to provide funding for playgrounds, hospitals and charitable projects- including social and educational services.
                                 We are honored to call them our community partners.
