Renewal by Andersen of Virginia Beach Supports Frontline COVID Fund
Location makes six-figure contribution to help community members affected by the pandemic
Gerry Rogers, owner of Renewal by Andersen’s retail affiliate in Virginia Beach, VA, wanted to do something special to help the local community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Rogers felt especially grateful to the nurses, doctors, first responders, and frontline workers.
Rogers committed to donating a portion of all sales in May and June, up to $100,000, to the Sentara COVID-19 Community Relief Fund. Sentara Healthcare has several hospitals and a number of healthcare facilities throughout the Virginia Beach area. Donations to the fund are used to support programs, partners, and employees of Sentara, and people affected by COVID-19.
The team at RbA Virginia Beach banded together to make Roger’s mission a reality. It was a group effort from all departments, says Rogers.
A portion of the $100,000 donation has already helped the community in many ways. From providing PPE to helping purchase medications for those most in need. It’s also helped local heroes through the Sentara H.O.P.E Fund for employees.
One Sentara employee, Sylvia M., shared a personal story about how the fund helped her when she needed it most. “I was exposed while working at the screening and testing sites for COVID-19. I’ve had to quarantine home for the last 14 days. At the same time, we had a death in the family associated to COVID-19 and significant funeral expenses. My husband has been furloughed and without a job. It’s been rough time making ends meet,” she writes.
“They have been our caregivers and our heroes through the Coronavirus and I wanted to give back to them, and to the community that has given me so much over the past 34 years,” says Rogers.

❝We love our Renewal by Andersen windows! We replaced all our east-, west-, and south-facing windows, and with living in Phoenix, Arizona, it has made such a difference in the cooling of our home.
The windows have such a clean look to them too! The entire process from sales to measuring to installation went smoothly, and any questions we had were answered thoroughly. Everyone was professional and detail-oriented during each phase of the process. Thank you!"❞
We chose Renewal by Anderson to supply and install our new sliding glass patio door.We chose them not because they were the least expensive, but because they have a quality product and an agreement to get the whole job done whatever it took.
The installation crew was very professional and left our property better than when they got there thanks to the wonderful new door! We've been enjoying our new door and it looks great, inside and out. Thanks!❞
