CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The local nonprofit Abundant Life received a $10,000 grant from Dominion Energy on Thursday.

The donation came from The Dominion Energy Charitable Life grant and will be used to support a multitude of programs through Abundant Life. 

“You know that’s $10,000 we don't have to find. That will help us with feeding, it will help with program materials, it will help us have events like we have today. You see all the kids out here having fun, it’s exciting,” Eddie Howard, Executive Director of Charlottesville Abundant Life Ministries, said.

Dominion Energy Senior Vice President Cedric Green said Dominion is always looking to support initiatives that align with the company's mission of helping others. 

“One of the great benefits that we believe it’s such an opportunity to support the communities that we serve. Today’s event is a great example of that,” he said. 

Abundant Life began 27 years ago and works in the Fifeville and Prospect neighborhood to address spiritual, educational, and economic needs within the community.
