Virginia Beach, VA - Annual Stop the violence breakfast

Providing Community Service, Mentorship and Leadership
November 2014

The Gamma Xi Uplift Foundation is delighted to present the Second Annual Stop the Violence Breakfast on Saturday, January 24, 2015 at the Holiday Inn Virginia Beach-Norfolk Hotel and Conference Center, 5655 Greenwich Road, Virginia Beach, Virginia 23462. The purpose of this program is to bring awareness to violence, specifically, domestic violence in our community. We will discuss the responsibilities we all have as a society to support those who are experiencing these acts of abuse; additionally, our responsibilities to help reduce this crime against humanity.

The Gamma Xi Uplift Foundation has made it our mission to uplift our community on multiple levels. Each year the foundation awards numerous scholarships to graduating seniors in the Virginia Beach School System who will be furthering their education at the college level.

We have an annual Talent Hunt program where we encourage the youth to showcase their gifts in the Arts. This program is designed not only for them to perform their skill, but also inspire them to think about a complete presentation; key components such as timeliness, attire, delivery, and style.

The Foundation certainly understands the importance of impacting and exposing our youth to positive opportunities. We have a mentorship program which familiarize the youth in the studies of Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art and Math. They have the opportunity to participate in social projects during the holiday season where they deliver food baskets to the under-served communities in Virginia Beach. They attend workshops and banquets with their peers from other mentor groups to be enriched with various educational topics.

The Foundation will continue to support the efforts we have in place. We will pursue and explore new opportunities to establish a foot print that will make a positive impact in Virginia Beach and throughout Hampton Roads.

The programs that we provide would not be possible without the support of corporations, businesses, organizers and volunteers. This is where your involvement is critical. We need your participation and sponsorship. Tax deductible donations can be mailed to our address at P.O. Box 64535 Virginia Beach, Va. 23467. For questions you may contact Reggie Matthews at 757-338-2943 or .
Thank you for supporting this event; and for your support of all the other programs that are made possible because of benevolent leaders like you. The Gamma Xi Uplift Foundation salutes your commitment.
