      Vote For May's Round Up Charity!

      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 our customers make when they round up their change at purchase. To date, we've donated over $80,000!

      Once you see the choices, you'll understand why we can't decide which charity to support. We're like a child looking at a litter of puppies. "Can't we just have them all, please?" So we ask our customers to vote and the charity with the most votes at the end of the month is who we support the following month.

      In addition to voting, we hope you'll spread the word about these amazing organizations and help them in any way you can. 

      Here's a little about each charity.

      Evelyn's Wildlife Refuge This group of volunteers provides professional care to sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife with the intent to release them back into their natural habitats. Evelyn's Wildlife Refuge is committed to educating the public to better understand local wildlife and to recognize when animals need assistance from humans. Our donation would help them provide food, medication and bedding to wild animals in need of care. Click here to get involved!

      Bon Secours DePaul Center For Birth The Center For Birth is in need of a Feeding Tube Kit for their preemie babies. These babies are too little to nurse or use a bottle and their tummies are sensitive and underdeveloped. The Feeding Tube Kit will warm the milk and give them a better chance to grow and develop on schedule. At the moment, the Center For Birth does not have this state of the art feeding tube kit. Our donation will allow them to purchase the kit to feed 4-5 preemies per month. Click here to get involved!

      Ronald McDonald House of Norfolk  Families often travel from far away when their sick children are staying at our local hospitals. Ronald McDonald House relieves the stress and expense of lodging and travel so families can focus on their #1 concern - the health of their child. Ronald McDonald House can accommodate up to 17 families per night and their rooms are completely filled 79% of the time! Our donation will provide food, lodging and essentials to families during their unimaginable time of need.

      Round Up For Charity | Suffolk Humane Society

      Round Up For Charity | Suffolk Humane Society

      This month we're supporting our friends over at the Suffolk Humane Society. We're excited to support their mission of finding loving homes for Suffolk's homeless pets and reducing overpopulation through affordable spay/neuter programs. 

      As always, we'll match every single change donation that each customer donates when they round up. At the end of December we'll present a check to Suffolk Humane Society.

      In the meantime, they can always use donated blankets and pet food and, of course, volunteers!

      Round Up For Charity | The O’Brien School

      Round Up For Charity | The O’Brien School

      In November 2016, we're supporting a charity very near and dear to our hearts. While on vacation in Tanzania in 2006, a friend unexpectedly saw a need she could not ignore. Her family vacation turned into her life's calling - to build a school for the children of a small and impoverished village halfway around the world. She got to work.


      One year later, The O’Brien School in Tanzania opened to 150 students offering the only educational opportunity for children in their village. The school provides an alternative for young girls who are otherwise married off as early as 12 years old. The school also offers village women vocational training in crafts and jewelry allowing them their first opportunity for independence. It costs about $1000 per year to sponsor a young girl  for secondary school and that includes room, board, books and a little money for incidentals.

      We are so proud of our friend who saw a need and found a way to make a difference. At the end of the day, that's what it's all about. Although we normally support charities in our community, we know there is need all over the world and we're happy to make a difference wherever we can!
