Southern Virginia Regional Medical Center’s Denim Days Donations

Emporia, VA – Wearing comfy clothes to work is always a perk, but when it helps charitable causes in the community it’s truly a pleasure. Throughout the months of March and April, the staff of Southern Virginia Regional Medical Center (SVRMC) participated in Denim Days.  By donating $5.00, hospital staff was able to wear jeans on Fridays.

In recognition of National Nutrition Month, all proceeds raised during the month of March were donated to the Main Street Baptist Church Food Bank. The staff at SVRMC made a donation that totaled more than $200 and included dry goods.

Helping celebrate Healthy Kids Day, the staff of SVRMC raised $175 during April Denim Days and donated to the Emporia-Greensville YMCA. It’s no surprise the idea of summer is a highly anticipated time for both kids and adults. Unfortunately, health and well-being sometimes gets forgotten during the summer months. In an effort to bring awareness to families in the community and to encourage the development of healthy habits at home, YMCAs across the country, including the Emporia-Greensville YMCA, celebrated Health Kids Day on April 26. The staff at SVRMC was excited to help contribute to a wonderful cause.



March Denim Days supported the Main Street Baptist Church Food Bank in recognition of National Nutrition Month.
