March 2022

In March  2022, we were honored to raffle off a gift basket to raise funds for their very important mission. With our members help, we were able to donate $205 to this wonderful organization. 

All Blessings Flow is a local faith-based non-profit organization that was founded to improve the quality of life of individuals living with disabilities. Our primary mission is to provide medical equipment free of charge to those in need in Charlottesville, Albemarle, and surrounding counties. For a disabled person in need, a piece of medical equipment can be a life-changing blessing.

Dear Virginia AAHAM Members:

As you know, the Virginia AAHAM Chapter is pleased to participate with the Keystone, Philadelphia, Three Rivers and Maryland Chapters of AAHAM in a fundraising endeavor. Virginia AAHAM and the other AAHAM Chapters have joined together across borders, along with Amor Healing Kitchen, to create a cookbook.  

AMOR Healing Kitchen, located in Charleston, SC, provides nutritious, healthy food prepared by high school students and delivered by community volunteers. Every week, AMOR’s Teen Chefs and Kitchen Mentors prepare these delicious meals to people undergoing or recovering from treatment for Cancer, Diabetes, HIV, and more.

We are asking our Virginia AAHAM members to donate your favorite recipes (possibly Virginia inspired). The cookbook will include 300 recipes with AMOR contributing healthy recipes. Our goal is to sell 1,000 cookbooks.

Please see the attached letter for specifics on how you can donate your favorite recipe. Please note, we have simplified the recipe submission process.

Thank you for supporting this worthy cause by participating and showing your Virginia AAHAM pride!
