Build A Better Richmond

We love all that Richmond has to offer, and we want to provide Richmond some love. It’s a beautiful city large enough to be blessed with diversity in many ways, but not so big to be overwhelming. Here, neighbors matter, so we’re embarking on a summer of vision and mission to lift them up.

Love

It all began...

July 2016, as the youth of West Assembly of God (WEAG) church in Richmond, gave a week of their summer to benefit others. They helped launch a new thrift store that supports missions. They landscaped yards, restored a city park, and painted houses and the offices of non-profits.

In July 2017...

The work, dedication, and sacrifice of WEAG’s youth benefitted our neighbors once again. In the second annual LiftUp RVA, the youth again helped with landscaping and painting. They also restored a playground at an inner city school for literacy. And, they helped build access ramps.

Now, you're invited...

To join the spirit of the past two years in blessing individuals and communities in need of assistance.
