Community Engagement + Professional Organizations

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

Through various event sponsorships, pro-bono services, volunteer work and charitable donations, PF&A Design has been committed to making a difference in and improving the communities where we live, work, and play.

We believe in giving back to the community in hopes of creating a better quality of life for all of its citizens. Dedication, skill, overall work ethic and loyalty to the vision of PF&A are all intangible qualities that make PF&A great. It is the common thread that runs through all that we do and what we stand for. These are also the qualities and philosophy of the people that comprise PF&A. It doesn’t begin and end at work; it continues in the private lives of many of our employees.

A few of our passions include these partnerships:

  • Samantha Makes it a Little Easier (SMILE)

  • Arthritis Foundation

  • CHKD Moonlight and Mistletoe

  • Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore

  • St. Mary’s Home

  • Chesapeake Regional Health Foundation

  • Lake Taylor Transitional Care Auxiliary

  • EVMS Foundation Sponsorships

  • Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital Auxiliary

  • US Department of Defense Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR)

  • W. M. Jordan Charity Golf Classic

Nothing beats wearing your favorite comfy jeans to work on a Friday!

Each Friday, PF&A collects contributions for the privilege to come to work in jeans. The proceeds are distributed to various rotating non-profits in the community each quarter.
