The Business of Helping

St. Michael’s core values acknowledge our obligation to give back in the communities where we operate and to those less fortunate. One commitment that we have honored since our founding is our involvement supporting local charitable organizations. In the past we have sponsored such charities as the American Cancer Society, StreetLight Community Outreach Ministries, Walk 4 Kids International, and many more.

American Cancer Society's Relay for Life

The Relay for Life is an organized, overnight community fundraising walk comprised of teams who walk and run around a track. Members of each team take turns walking around the track all day Saturday and overnight because cancer never sleeps. For more than 65 years, the American Cancer Society has been finding answers that save lives - from changes in lifestyle to new approaches in therapies to improving cancer patients' quality of life. No single non-governmental, not-for-profit organization in the US has invested more to find the causes and cures of cancer.

StreetLight Community Outreach Ministries

StreetLight Community Outreach Ministries’ mission is to build strong community by improving the quality of life for impoverished men, women, and children, including the "chronically homeless." Everyone is welcome, regardless of faith, race, or nationality. They serve our clientele in a compassionate and caring environment that offers dignity, acceptance, and love. They facilitate personal growth, spiritual renewal, independence, and integration into a healthy community.

Walk 4 Kids International

Nearly half the population of Africa does not have access to safe drinking water. Villagers, mainly women and children, spend hours each day walking miles to collect water from open ponds, livestock water points, and polluted ditches. Water 4 Kids International (W4KI) has been restoring hope to children who have been affected by extreme poverty and preventable diseases. W4KI is responding to this need by drilling deep water wells in remote villages throughout East Africa and Central India. They strategically drill wells in communities that are close to primary schools, medical clinics, and trading centers.

St. Michael’s is proud to have donated to such a noble cause and you can read more about the event that took place right here in our backyard by clicking on this link. For more information about how you can help to bring fresh water to destitute communities, please visit: http://www.w4ki.org/

Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF)

St. Michael’s supports the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF). This program provides full scholarship grants, education and family counseling to the surviving children of special operations personnel who have died in operational or training missions. SOWF also provides immediate financial assistance to severely wounded special operations personnel and their families.

USO of Metropolitan Washington

St. Michael's sponsored the USO of Metropolitan Washington which strives to be a home away from home for our troops and Y.U.M. meals are a great way to do that. A home cooked meal may seem like a small gesture, but it’s a comfort many active duty military personnel sacrifice. The purpose of the lunches is to give them a little slice of feeling back at home. When they go to lunch or dinner at Y.U.M., they are saving money, eating a balanced, healthy meal, and getting a chance to mix and mingle with other active duty personnel. Active Duty military personnel, including Reserves and National Guard, are invited to Y.U.M. Lunches.

St. Michael’s is pleased to have supported such a noble cause with a Bowl-a-Thon fundraiser. Many St. Michael’s personnel are former military and/or Reservists; as a result we have a great appreciation for the USO and Y.U.M. Lunch program.

Habitat for Humanity of Northern Virginia

St. Michael's Inc. sponsored Habitat for Humanity of Northern Virginia who seeks to draw together the time, talent, and resources of the community to build decent, affordable housing for people in need. Habitat for Humanity’s unique approach to low-cost homeownership relies on owner sweat equity, donor generosity, volunteer labor, and an interest-free mortgage. Since their founding in 1990, they have built homes for more than 300 people, including 180 children. Habitat’s unique approach to home building in the Washington, DC metro region includes participating in the Neighborhood Stabilization Program, a project funded by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, and building multi-family housing.

Chantilly Youth Association

St. Michael’s sponsored the Chantilly Youth Association (CYA) Football Program, a local football team in Fairfax County, VA. The CYA Football Program emphasizes sportsmanship, team play, self-discipline, maximum effort, integrity, and participation. The CYA football program is one of the largest in Fairfax County, fielding as many as 29 teams.

Child Rescue Center

The Child Rescue Centre (CRC) provides safety and hope to nearly 250 children who have been rescued from desperate situations. The CRC raises funds for orphans and other victims of the civil war from the Republic of Sierra Leone in West Africa. The CRC golf outing serves as a way for companies like St. Michael’s to donate to the very important cause and we are proud to have sponsored such a worthy cause.
