Community participation

Riverstone continues to support Feed More, Central Virginia’s core hunger-relief organization. In 2022, Riverstone joined with our clients again for a virtual food drive in the spring. We also held several actual food drives throughout the year with our clients dropping most needed donations at our office or at an event. Overall, between the monies raised and the food donated, we helped provide nearly 68,500 meals to those most in need in our area.

Additionally, for the 15th year Riverstone partnered with our clients to participate in the Salvation Army Angel Tree program, lifting the spirits of more than 55 children with our gifts
