Community Relations

APA Richmond Chapter Community Relations is committed to participating in our local community needs. Much like the way we come together in support of payroll education, we also come together to help make a difference for those who work, live, and play right here in our own community. Your support is not only needed but greatly appreciated by the APA Richmond Chapter Board and members of your community.

NEW!! For every member who brings a donation or proof of their monetary donation, they will be entered into a special drawing for a gift card!

On-Going Efforts:

Central Virginia Food Bank 50/50 Drawing – At each meeting, members will be able to buy a ticket for $1. If their ticket is drawn, they win 50% of the amount collected for the cause while the other 50% is matched 100% by the Chapter and donated to the Central Virginia Food Bank.
