3,691 Jars of Peanut Butter and Jelly Collected for Local Charities

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Thu, Jul 06, 2023 @ 03:14 PM

kayleigh2The Liz Moore & Associates 2023 Peanut Butter and Jelly Challenge was a huge success!  During the month of June, all offices collected PB&J for local charitable organizations and churches to help feed those in need this Summer.

Our Richmond office collected the most with 1,351 jars in just one month putting the grand total at 3,691 jars.

"Our Peanut Butter & Jelly drive is one of my favorite community projects," said Liz Moore.  "This year, many of our clients donated jars alongside the agents, which was fun.  We will be able to provide a summer’s worth of PB & J to many local food pantries as a result.  Congrats to our Richmond office, for collecting the most!"

Thank you to all who donated and helped us get the word out.

Liz Moore Agents Host Potluck Event Raising Money for Here for the Girls, Inc.

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Tue, Oct 04, 2022 @ 06:41 AM

Here for the Girls-2Liz Moore agents Karen Wolons and Jackie Mierle teamed up (with a little help from their friends) to raise money for Here for the Girls, Inc. The event was held on July 28th at Billsburg Brewery in Williamsburg. Food and non-alcoholic drinks were provided for a monetary donation and over $2,000 was raised for Here for the Girls, Inc. in honor of Jackie's fight.

Jackie was diagnosed with Breast Cancer at the age of 30 in 2021. While her oncologists and surgeons were able to tackle the physical aspects of treatment, most of their social and emotional support was geared toward women over 50. She found the support and services she needed from Here for the Girls and while she gears up to raise money to support the organization, she wants to take this opportunity to bring awareness to Breast Cancer under 50, under 40 and even *under 30.*

Liz Moore & Associates’ Potluck with a Purpose lunches are held monthly and are hosted by agents and staff. The host cooks and provides lunch for a cash donation to the cause of their choice.

Edmarc was the first hospice in the nation designed for children and has been serving the Hampton Roads community for over 40 years. Nurses, social workers, and volunteers for Edmarc currently serve 70-80 children in its clinical program and more than 160 families in its bereavement program.

Habitat for Humanity Builds 3D-Printed House in Williamsburg, Virginia

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Wed, Dec 29, 2021 @ 10:12 AM

habitat-3D-house-pics-12202021-23-2048x1446A 1,200 square-foot, three-bedroom house in Williamsburg became the first completed Habitat 3D printed house in the nation.

With lumber prices soaring due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg partnered with Alquist for this innovative project that will help reduce the cost to build homes by 15% per square foot as compared to conventional methods.  The printing technology meant it took just 12 hours to build a 1,200-square-foot home. The house even comes with a computer file to print replacement knobs and light-switch covers. 

Concrete confers additional long-term savings because it better retains temperature, saving on heating and cooling costs, and is resistant to tornado and hurricane damage.

Construction of each home built by Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg is a cooperative effort between volunteers, house sponsors, and the buyers of the home. Participating families provide at least 300 hours of work toward building their own and other families’ homes, called sweat equity.
