About | Community
Kreative typically hosts an annual summer Golf Tournament to support charities such as Comfort Cases, DC Central Kitchen, and many others. Unfortunately, this year we were unable to host such an event due to the outbreak of COVID-19. In order to keep our community safe, we did something a little different. From November to December of 2020, Kreative happily hosted out very first virtual 5k. This Fun Run was hosted in support of Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Children’s Intervention Services (CIS).
CASA CIS is a nonprofit organization advocating for abused or neglected child victims living in Fauquier, Prince William, Rappahannock, and Warren Counties as well as the cities of Manassas and Manassas Park. Those who donated and sponsored this event helped Kreative raise over $25,000 to help provide a voice for mistreated and underprivileged children, to lead them on a part to a better life. For more information about how to continue to help CASA and the children they serve, visit their website at www.casacis.org.
At Kreative, we believe that giving back allows our organization to connect with the community on a different level and provides an environment of philanthropy and social responsibility in the workplace. Because of this, we hold an annual “Kreative Open” golf event to raise donations for a local charity. The event provides employees, families, and local businesses the opportunity to take part in a building a better future, boosting community morale, and making a positive impact in the lives of those in need.
For Kreative’s 5th annual event, we were proud to have partnered with Comfort Cases, as well as other business sponsors, to raise money for children entering the foster care system. Comfort Cases, Inc. was founded by partners Rob and Reece Scheer in December of 2013 upon the arrival of their 4 children (then foster children) carrying everything that they owned in trash bags. Shocked and horrified at the practice that adoption agencies still implement, when a child’s security is already at its worst, Rob and Reece sought out a solution to provide children in the system a more dignified and secure way to carry their life’s belongings with them. Comfort Cases recognizes that everyone deserves to have their basic needs met along with a few comfort items of their own, and it is their goal to fill backpacks and duffle bags with brand new essential and comfort items for youth to receive as they enter the foster care system. Today, Comfort Cases has served over 85,000 children in foster care, and continues their mission across all fifty states.
