SBF Holiday Giving
Social Butterflies Foundation will be blessing seniors residing at Waterview Health & Rehab Center in Hampton, VA this holiday season. The pandemic has made it impossible for many residents to see their families due to COVID safety protocols. We plan to ensure that each resident receives a gift to brighten their holiday. We invite you to join us in making this a joyous season by donating gifts for the residents, making monetary donations, and/or volunteering your time to help assemble the gift bags. 🎁❤️

Social Butterflies Foundation partnered with iNFLUENCE to host our Back to School Backpack & PPE Giveaway. We wanted to ensure that the youth were able to start the new school year off safely and prepared. We filled the backpacks with school supplies and PPE such as masks, hand sanitizer, and wipes. The Giveaways took place on August 15th at the Newport News location of iNFLUENCE and on August 22nd at the Norfolk location of iNFLUENCE. Social Butterflies Foundation thanks our community sponsors for their generosity: Langley Federal Credit Union, Walmart, and Community Knights. It was such a blessing to be a blessing to others! Together we will continue to make a difference!

She’s pursuing a career in cosmetology focusing on skin and hair care. She is considering dermatology thanks to her dermatologist Dr.Annyce Treherne.
