Governor Northam Announces Siemens Gamesa Chooses Virginia to Establish First U.S. Offshore Wind Turbine Blade Facility, Propelling Largest New Renewable Energy Project in United States

Exciting announcement today for Access Point client, Dominion Energy, the City of Portsmouth, the Hampton Roads region and the Commonwealth. Access Point directly supports outreach and communications efforts for Dominion’s Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind project, which will generate enough clean, sustainable energy to power up to 660,000 homes at peak and avoid as much as 5 million tons of carbon dioxide annually once completed. This announcement marks a major milestone in the development of Virginia’s first offshore wind project – and the second active offshore wind project in the country. We’re proud to be a part of the team that’s helping to ensure this project is a success.

With your help, if we raise $6k by Oct. 16 we have been invited to apply for USA Today's #ACommunityThrives grant for $100k! We're off to a great start. If we can get 150 donors to contribute $30 each we can meet their requirements and offer support to our immigrant neighbors. Visit nvfs.link/Act2020.

One of the programs that will benefit from this grant is our Multicultural Center. The mental health services provided by our multilingual, culturally sensitive staff provide mental health services to immigrants who face high rates of exposure to trauma due to war, death of family members, separation from family, torture, etc.)

Even during #COVID19 our staff is still working, helping immigrants and refugees in our community via telehealth appointments. Your support is invaluable to making this work happen!

Thanks to the dedication of the community, we are all able to ensure that everyone is given the opportunity to thrive, even during #COVID19. Thank you Access Point Public Affairs, LLC, Dev Technology Group, Production Solutions, and Stanley Martin Homes for your #corprorateresponsibility, #communitystewardship and support.

Allan Myers started the idea as a $15,000 dollar for dollar match. A total of just over $40,000 was raised and split between NVFS and ACTS for our food programs. "Going from empty shelves to full shelves (and pallets of food to spare) doesn't normally happen overnight, but the Allan Meyers Challenge coordinated by the Prince William Chamber of Commerce was the exception that proved the rule. The over $20,000 raised was put to good use immediately, and we are now in a much better position to assist our neighbors. Thank you." ~ Steven Liga, ACTS CEO Thank you to all the donors for the Allan Myer Food Challenge: Amazon Web Services I-66 Express Mobility Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center United Bank NOVEC Iron Mountain Data Center Access Point Public Affairs, LLC Walsh, Colucci, Lubeley & Walsh, P.C.
