The City has launched the RVAStrong website, which centralizes support for our neighbors who need it and amplifies those who are willing to offer it. There are resources for everyone on RVAStrong– from those who need help finding diapers, to small business support options, to those who want to volunteer at a food distribution site. I encourage you to share this resource with your family and neighbors.
