Pumpkin Mousse

Photos from a Phenomenonal Day of Giving

The 22nd Annual Rose & Womble Foundation’s Turkey Brigade was a huge success. We gave out 1,020 full Thanksgiving meals in Hampton Roads.

We had an amazing day with the 22nd annual Turkey Brigade – agents and employees from all over the company volunteered their time to hand out 1,020. We had some brave men and women from the US Navy and US Marines – private organizations like Friends for Elderly and Daughters of Life. And we had help from city service organizations who are on the front lines of hunger everyday here in Hampton Roads.

Here are a collection of photos from the day – we’re going to be highlighting some of the stories from the Brigade throughout the next week as part of the #RWThanks series.

From everyone at Rose & Womble Realty Company we watn to say thanks for once again supporting our effort to help those in Hampton Roads.
