As a physician-owned practice, we are invested in putting you and your health first. We’re your neighbors and your friends. We are part of your community, and, together, we can make the women in our region healthier and happier. In fact, even beyond our workdays, you’ll find us volunteering, supporting organizations like Salvation Army, the Bon Secours forensic nursing program, American Cancer Society, the Ronald McDonald House, and more. Why do we do it? It’s for the same reason that motivates us to serve the women of our region…it’s simply the right thing to do. Of course, we have a lot of fun along the way, too.
In the month of January, VPFW will be partnering with Capitol Pediatrics to collect children’s books in honor of national reading month. Through the Reach Out and Read Program, VPFW hopes to encourage all parents to stimulate early brain development by reading to their children.
We ask that both staff and patients help us collect either new or gently used books throughout the month of January. We request that the books be suited for ages 1-14 years old and there will be a container at each of our locations to collect the donations. Help us give back to our loved community and bring a book with you to your next visit!
The Cinderella Dreams Prom Dress Project is held each spring by the Midlothian Junior Women’s Club. During the late winter and early spring, the club collects prom dresses, jewelry, shoes, makeup and other prom-related accessories at Richmond-area YMCA branches. They then hold a ‘shopping’ event, where girls can shop for and select a dress and accessories for free. Since 2006, they have partnered with area businesses and organizations to help hundreds of girls fulfill their prom dreams at no cost to them!
During the month of February, gowns and accessories will be collected at all VPFW locations for Cinderella Dreams. Donated gowns and accessories should be new or like-new condition of current styles. Puritan Cleaners has graciously volunteered to dry clean all donations collected!
We ask that both staff and patients help us collect either new or gently used prom dresses and accessories throughout the month of February. Help us in our efforts to make every young lady feel like a princess for prom and bring a dress or accessories with you at your next visit!
