Over 300 families in Richmond received $100 food coupons during the holidays thanks to a partnership involving a local foundation and RichmondWORKS.

Richmond residents Maryn and Garry Hurlbut and the Hurlbut Benevolent Foundation (HBF) Board of Directors partnered with Bouakhay Phongboupha, program manager for RichmondWORKS, to make the distribution possible.

“Bouakhay and her staff have been able to identify some of the most needy families in Richmond who could make the best use of the supplemental food over the holiday season,” Garry Hurlbut said.

The Hurlbuts are retirees and Richmond residents who are heavily active in in the community. One of the pair’s significant contributions is starting the Richmond Tennis Association, which significantly amplified tennis participation and facilities in the city.
