The Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation recently awarded $25,000 to Conexus in support of its healthy vision programs across the Commonwealth.
"We are extremely grateful for the continued support of Dominion Energy," said Jeff Baldwin, communications director for Conexus. "With this funding, we can continue our efforts to remove poor vision as a barrier to academic success for thousands of school-aged children."
This grant is part of Dominion's $1.6 million awarded to more than 200 nonprofits providing essential human services in 12 states. This is the fourth year the company has awarded more than $1 million to meet critical community needs.
"Each year we look at ways to support charitable organizations that work day-in and day-out to make a positive impact in our communities," said Hunter A. Applewhite, president of the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation. "These grants will help provide the food, shelter and medical care needed by many for a better life."

Herb White, former Chairman of the Board of Directors, passed away on Sunday, January 27th.
“Herb White was one of the finest men I’ve known,” said Tim Gresham, Conexus CEO.
Herb White, a retired newspaper executive with Richmond Newspapers, served as Chairman of the Board of Directors for two years and was instrumental in advancing our mission for countless years.
“In addition to providing wise counsel as a leader of our organization, Herb was very methodical and precise. He was basically in charge of the production of Richmond Newspapers, so he always insisted tasks be done right and on time!”
Our thoughts and prayers are with Herb’s wife of 56 years and their son Scott.
