Company Supports Norfolk-based Garden Center’s Commitment to Provide Job Training and Employment for the Disabled.

Employees of BN Media, the definitive online resource for information related to inspiration and spirituality and parent company of Affinity4, Beliefnet and Cross Bridge, will be helping Eggleston Garden Center rebuild sections of its Norfolk-based gardens that were destroyed in a storm this past winter. The project will held on May 25 and it is expected that over 40 volunteers will assist with the rebuilding effort. Affinity4 specializes in helping charities, ministries and other nonprofit organizations raise funds.

The undertaking is part of Affinity4’s ongoing service projects in support of local nonprofit organizations. Affinity4 employees have raised thousands of dollars for local organizations in need in addition to their community service projects. Past community service activities have ranged from building a guard to prevent erosion at First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach, VA, to renovating a house for a previously homeless family on behalf of ForKids in Norfolk, VA.

Eggleston Services is a nonprofit organization that has been dedicated to the education, training and employment of persons with disabilities for over 50 years. Its goal is to assist people in obtaining work opportunities so they may lead full, independent lives and better integrate in the community. Eggleston Garden Center and Horticultural Services was opened in 1999 and provides education, training and employment opportunities in retail sales, greenhouse management, plant propagation, grounds maintenance, and landscaping. Eggleston Garden Center represents the shared vision of both Eggleston Services and the Virginia Zoological Society creating "horticulturally" focused employment and training opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
