Giving Back to the Community and the Oval’s Holiday Cheer!

| People & Culture

Giving back to the community is important to us.  Check out some of the creative ways we helped give back to our community! 

 Richmond Food Bank Society

In the summer, our creative team organized an online talent auction called The Oval’s Got Talent. We auctioned off our talents in exchange for a donation made to the Food Bank. This included lessons in volleyball, ultimate frisbee, cooking, personal training, and much more! In total we raised $2,067.

On the day we went to deliver the cheque, we also volunteered our time to the Food Bank. We handed out food and household supplies to those in need. Our team enjoyed this opportunity so much that on December 8th we went back on-site to volunteer our time again.

On an ongoing basis both our members and staff generously contribute to the Food Bank by organizing food donation boxes.

Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives (RCRG)

This holiday season we participated in the Richmond Auto Mall’s Windows of Hope event to spread awareness for RCRG. Our team was assigned a window at a car dealership where we painted a festive holiday scene. In return, the car dealership made a donation to the Richmond Christmas Fund. For more information on the Richmond Christmas Fund, click here.

In addition, both the Oval team and our members participated in the RCRG Toy Drive this holiday season. Thank you for your generous contributions this year!!


Having lots of fun at work is also important to us. Check out how we celebrated the holiday season this year!
