Emporia, VA – Southern Virginia Regional Medical Center (SVRMC) staff turned denim into donations during the Back-to-School Supply Drive. Over the summer months, SVRMC employees donated money and school supplies in order to wear jeans on Fridays. “It was an easy and fun way for our team to be able to help students in our community,” explained Rebecca Parrish, SVRMC HR Director.

Earlier this week, more than $400 in supplies were delivered to Brunswick County Public Schools (BCPS). “Thank you to Southern Virginia Regional Medical Center for the generous donation of school supplies,” said Kristy N. Somerville-Midgette, BCPS Division Superintendent, “Our faculty, staff, and students are appreciative of your generosity!”

This is the second year SVRMC employees have donated to the school supply drive. In 2017, donations were given to Greensville County Public Schools. In 2018, team members have generously given more than $2,000 to local charities and organizations including the Food Pantry at Main Street Baptist Church, the YMCA’s Healthy Kids Program and the Emporia/Greensville Relay for Life.
