Guided by the late Robert Wegman’s words, “Never think of yourself, always help others,” Wegmans stores and employees work tirelessly each year to make a lasting difference in the neighborhoods they serve. The grocery chain has been giving back to the local community for years through its growing contributions to the Fairfax County Park Foundation.
Chris Holland leads Community Relations for Wegmans’ Virginia stores. He says, “We’re proud to partner with the Fairfax County Park Foundation to help improve the neighborhoods where our customers and employees work and live.”
Wegmans has sponsored the Fairfax County Park Authority (FCPA) Summer Entertainment Series since 2013 with a focus on drive-in movies and concerts in the supervisory districts of the Fairfax, Chantilly, Alexandria and Tysons stores. The grocer has also provided in-kind gifts of Wegmans Meals 2GO food and catering for numerous park events, including the Cub Run Rec Center Customer Appreciation Week, the 4-H Fair & Carnival at Frying Pan Farm Park, the Elly Doyle FCPA Volunteer & FCPF Philanthropy Awards, and Ghost Train evenings at Burke Lake Park.
"At Wegmans, we believe communities thrive when we all work together. We look forward to continuing our support for a variety of local events and organizations in Fairfax County,” says Holland.
