NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — The Langley For Families Foundation recently approved more than $110,000 in donations to several nonprofits in Hampton Roads.

A total of 20 groups received the funding.

Both Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA and Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Virginia received $10,000 each for emergency childcare services for essential workers in the community.

Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Virginia also accepted a donation from the Langley for Families Foundation. During the coronavirus pandemic, 30 wishes were postponed because of the risks for immune-compromised patients.

Make-A-Wish worked to provide safer requests such as new pets, shopping sprees and gaming consoles.

Officials with the organization emphasize that when a child receives a critical diagnosis, everyday matters, which is why their goal is to grant every wish as quickly as possible. To support COVID-19 wishes, Langley for Families Foundation granted $5,000.

Bridging The Gap Youth Program received a first-time grant of $2,500 for their mask making and distribution program. Bridging the Gap is a Newport News-based group working with youth to stop violence and reconnect through entertainment, entrepreneurship and innovation.
