2010 Opportunity Hall of Fame Seal of Approval Award
On December 7, 2010, Neighbors Foundation was honored to receive a 2010 Opportunity Hall of Fame Seal of Approval Award from Commonwealth of Virginia First Lady Maureen McDonald. The awards are part of The First Lady's Initiatives Team Effort (FLITE), which Mrs. McDonnell launched in the spring of 2010 to recognize programs, activities, organizations and individuals who embody the ideal of creating a Commonwealth of Opportunity in their communities.
During the award ceremony Mrs. McDonnell remarked, "The American spirit is truly embodied in the idea of 'opportunity.' When we help each other, or provide others with opportunities of their own, we can make this a true 'Commonwealth of Opportunity.' That's why I set out to launch an initiative that helps showcase programs, projects, individuals and organizations that are doing incredible work across the Commonwealth."
