The other five organizations receiving awards were the Westmoreland County Sheriff’s Department, The Haven Shelter & Services, Inc., Veterans Outreach Group (VOG), Northern Neck Free Health Clinic, and Hospice of the Northern Neck.

A primary mission of the Ladies of St. Paul’s is to raise funds to provide donations to worthy charities that directly impact the Northern Neck.
