Giving back to our community is one of our greatest delights. Every month A. Dodson's supports a charity chosen by our customers. We match each donation when our customers round up their change at purchase. To date, we've donated over $90,000!
In addition to voting, we hope you'll spread the word about these amazing organizations and help them in any way you can (volunteers are always loved!). ❤️
1) Edmarc Hospice for Children | Edmarc serves very sick children and their families right here in Hampton Roads. Because we serve only children, we do not have access to Medicare reimbursement; and because of our specialized services, many third party payers refuse to grant exclusionary privileges.
We currently have 76 children and their families in the clinical program receiving home health/hospice services. There are 164 families receiving bereavement support and 22 families in the community bereavement support program. The total number of family members served by all of our programs, including home health, hospice, and bereavement support is 917. Click here to learn more!
