Daily we get calls from people like Geneva who don’t know where else to turn. Geneva is 89 years old and legally blind. One Monday she called Williamsburg Area Faith in Action in a panic. Her eye, which had been operated on two months earlier, was bothering her and her eye specialist in Richmond wanted to see her the next day. Despite the short notice, we were able to find a volunteer to drive her to the appointment. At that appointment the specialist said he needed to see her again on Friday. Again, we quickly lined up a volunteer. On Friday Geneva was informed her eye had deteriorated and required further surgery to preserve her sight. Surgery was scheduled for the following Monday and she would need to go back for a follow-up on Tuesday.
We were able to get Geneva to Richmond for her eye surgery and follow up appointments. Geneva called to thank everyone who made it possible for her to get the medical care she needed. “I don’t know what I would do without you. I might have lost the little vision I have left, instead I’m able to read again!”
Your financial support makes it possible for us to help individuals like Geneva. Please give today!!

Memorial and Honorarium Gifts
A gift in honor or memory of a beloved friend or associate can be the most appropriate way to express a lasting tribute. To honor someone at an important milestone in his or her life, for instance a birthday, anniversary or the birth of a child, is also an ideal way to give a special gift to that person. A contribution in someone’s memory creates a lasting commemoration of that person and of your friendship. It also enables WFIA to continue providing services to the elderly, chronically ill and disabled without charge.
Each of these gifts is acknowledged with a letter to the honored person or to the family of the person in whose name the gift is made. Notification does not include the amount of the gift. In addition, the donor also receives a separate acknowledgment of his or her contribution.
