Exit Realty Expertise, a King George County business, was among three Fredericksburg-area businesses recognized at Thursday’s 11th-annual Chamber Goodwill Awards for their efforts at helping others in the community and improving the local quality of life.
Here’s information from Bill Freehling, The Free Lance-Star’s Business reporter, about the awards.
The CVS Distribution Center in Spotsylvania County won the award for a large business. The company was honored for its work with the Rappahannock United Way, Rappahannock Area Agency on Aging, Bragg Hill Family Life Center and Hope House.
Exit Realty Expertise, a real-estate brokerage firm, won the award for a medium business for its work with the Greater Fredericksburg Habitat for Humanity, King George Fall Festival, Autism Society, King George Historical Society, King George Food Bank, King George YMCA and Rappahannock United Way.
Foode, a restaurant in downtown Fredericksburg, won the award for a small business. Owners Beth Black and Joy Crump and their staff have provided free meals to the families of sick children, mentored at-risk students and participated in area fundraiser events to benefit Mary Washington Healthcare Hospice and the Moss Free Clinic.
