Love Thy Neighbor Foundation                                                

Our Donations

Love Thy Neighbor has been actively supporting the local communities of our Board Members since 2007. Check out the below list to see several partners and beneficiaries we are proud to call our neighbors!

A few months after Hurricane Irma swept through the Caribbean and Southwest Florida, Love Thy Neighbor donated to several families who experienced varying degrees of devastation from the storm. $15,000 worth of generators were donated to families on the US Virgin Island, St. John. Two families in Naples applied for and received $500 each; one to repair a handicap ramp going into the home, and the other to replace a daughter's laptop and other items that were lost in the storm. And at Christmastime, a Virginia Beach book club bought gifts for a 7-year old girl and her mother who were displaced from their Caribbean home; Love Thy Neighbor contributed an additional $500 to help the Angel Tree family even further. 

In August 2017, Envision Lead Grow hosted a week long girl's entrepreneurial camp in Norfolk, VA. Love Thy Neighbor donated $500 in seed money to help one of the finalists pursue her dream of making scented prescription soaps.   

In June, $3,500 was donated to SUNY at Fredonia, Jamestown Business College and First Baptist Church Camp JYC. 


Rochester Institute of Technology and Jamestown Community College received the bulk of $3,000 in donations made throughout 2016 in Western NY. 


In May, twenty-five Love Thy Neighbor supporters gathered together for a PaintNite at Cheeseburger in Paradise, raising $375. Through a partnership with Cindy Shea, an independent consultant for Wine Shop at Home, we were able to bring in an extra $175 through a silent auction. This total amount of $550 was donated to Virginia Beach City Public Schools' Beach Bags Program which provides needy students with necessary food items over the weekends and breaks when they are not in school and cannot take advantage of school breakfasts and lunches. 

In October, we sponsored a Virginia Beach family who went from being homeless to living in their own apartment. As you can imagine, this couple and their little boy were in need of some standard furniture for their new home, including a small couch, beds, sheets, etc. Love Thy Neighbor donated $150 toward helping this family get their place furnished. 

$3,150 was distributed to Daemon College, Nazareth College, and First Baptist Church Camp JYC in June, and to Christmas Spirit and Catholic Charities in November. 

Various summer camps and college located south of Buffalo, NY, including St. Bonaventure University, received $3,500 in donations from Love Thy Neighbor in 2014. 

In April 2013, we hosted our 3rd Annual Love Thy Neighbor 5k run/1 mile walk called the Wear Your College Colors 5K. We raised nearly $4,000, which was all donated to Access College Foundation in Norfolk, VA and passed on to provide a college scholarship at their 25th Scholarship Awards Luncheon.  

Throughout the year, $3,500 was donated to Western NY colleges and youth summer camps. 

In July 2012, we raised $1,950 at an event in partnership with Cheeseburger in Paradise in Virginia Beach, VA. The proceeds benefited Operation School Supply in Hampton Roads

In April 2012, We hosted a 5k Run/Walk at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront and raised $2,000 for the Access College Foundation. The $2,000 was presented in the form of a college scholarship to a Bayside High grad who is attending Longwood University this fall studying sports medicine

Jamestown Community College, SUNY at Geneseo and others received $3,500 in 2012. 

In April 2011, We hosted a 5k on the Virginia Beach Oceanfront and raised $1500 for the Boo Williams Summer League to help underprivileged children in Hampton Roads go to summer camp

$5,000 was donated to several Western NY recipients, primarily Jamestown Community College and Eat Aurora Wrestling Booster Club.

We donated $4,000 throughout the year to Western NY causes, including local colleges and youth summer camps. 

In June, $3,000 was donated to Alfred State University, Presbytery's Camp Duffield and First Baptist Church food pantry. 

Sunshine Fund, Christmas Spirit and the same food pantry were recipients of another $1,000 at year's end. 

In December 2008, Love Thy Neighbor donated to the family of a marine who was home on leave to help buy presents and food for the kids at Christmastime.

Donations totaling $4,600 were made throughout the year to various Western NY causes, primarily to Daemon College. 


In December 2007, Love Thy Neighbor donated to this cause, which brings Christian churches together, across denominational lines, to help the poor by meeting immediate needs such as food and clothing, to longer-term responses through relational ministries such as life skills training and transitional housing.

In December 2007, we donated  $1,000 to a local Western NY family in need.

In August 2007, Love Thy Neighbor held an autograph session with Buffalo Sabres forward Patrick Kaleta. The funds donated to Bertrand Chaffee Hospital were put towards the purchase of a film processor for their Mammography unit.
