Our employees’ generosity during this time will have a meaningful impact,” said Pete Graham, chief executive officer of PRA Group and United Way of South Hampton Roads board member. “When companies and individuals work together to identify and help solve problems affecting our communities—whether it’s domestic violence, hunger, homelessness or lack of access to health care—we can partner with United Way to make a lasting difference.”
