Norfolk, VA – On Wednesday of last week our friends from Cox Communications stopped by to thank our folks for all their hard work helping them refurbish thousands of remotes, cords, and cables daily for their organization. Cox Communications has a goal of ZERO Waste that drives them to continue to think up of creative new ways to recycle and repurpose equipment. One of those ideas has generated an amazing partnership with Eggleston! Our Refurbishment teams are full of dozens of people who might not otherwise have a chance for meaningful work in the community. Within these programs they are able to make new friends, learn skills, earn money and – of course – HAVE FUN!

This most recent visit from our friends at Cox culminated with new shirts, a pizza party and fun photo ops! We appreciate all the many ways Cox Communications supports our organization and look forward to many more opportunities to partner together in the future.

Ocean View, Norfolk – One of the numerous groups within our Day Support Services ventured out to the Ocean View Pier this past month to take advantage of the beautiful fall weather. Everyone enjoyed the fishing and fun – followed by a wonderful lunch on the top deck of the pier! Thanks to OV Pier for hosting us! We hope that we left some fish out there for the rest of the fishermen and women!

Tuesday, October 29, 2019 – Virginia Beach  – To wrap up National Disability Employment Awareness Month, our friends at the Oceana Naval Air Station Galley treated guests and employees to a wonderful ceremony, lunch, and cake on Tuesday to show their appreciation to all of the folks working there!

Our Food Service and Galley programs provide employment for over 145 people across 8 locations in Hampton Roads. We serve both The United States Navy and The United States Marines at these locations.

Thank You to our military partners and friends for acknowledging our people and all the hard work they do to support our local (and usually hungry) sailors and soldiers!
