Virginia Foundation Solutions Cares about our Community
Virginia Foundation Solutions is committed to helping homeowners in our community repair their homes so they can lead healthier, happier lives. Not only do we provide the highest-quality foundation and crawlspace products installed by expert repair technicians throughout Southeastern Virginia and North Carolina, but we also frequently sponsor charities and community events in the area.
Christmas Joy Initiative
One of the many ways Virginia Foundation Solutions gives back to the community is by our popular Christmas Joy Initiative, a contest with the prize of free foundation or crawlspace repair work for a deserving homeowner. For the past three years, we have asked locals to nominate a homeowner in the Hampton Roads are who is in need who is experiencing foundation or crawlspace issues. We then narrow the extensive pool of applicants to repair projects within our scope of work, combined with people who were deemed to need our help the most. A winner is then randomly selected from this smaller applicant pool and notified of their award.
2018 Christmas Joy Initiative Winner
The 2018 winner of the Christmas Joy Initiative was Mr. Kurt Miller of Chesapeake, VA. Mr. Miller was a first responder for the 9/11 terrorist attacks as a member of the New York City Fire Department. After months of working through rubble to help exhume victims, he developed respiratory issues. Even after his health issues sidelined him from working at the World Trade Center site, he continued to work for the cause. Mr. Miller then began working in New York City morgues to continue to identify victims, with the goal of laying them to rest for their families. Today Mr. Miller suffers numerous respiratory diseases as a result of his valiant efforts, and he requires full-time oxygen therapy.
His house in Chesapeake had moisture in the crawlspace, which caused mold growth, wood rot, and problems with the floor, all of which exacerbated his health issues. Virginia Foundation Solutions cleaned out Mr. Miller’s crawl space, treated the mold, repaired and replaced the rotten wood, and installed a patented encapsulation system including a dehumidifier. These repairs solved Mr. Miller’s crawlspace issues for good.
The 2018 Christmas Joy Initiative service was valued at about $35,000, but as our contest winner these repairs were completed with no cost to Mr. Miller and his family. Virginia Foundation Solutions is honored to provide service to such a deserving member of our community.
