Veneeca Jeffries works with ForKids in Chesapeake and carries a reputation for selflessness. Recently, Ms. Jeffries came up with a plan to meet the needs of families moving from shelters into their new homes. With her own money, Veneeca drove to Integrity Auto Group to buy a car for a raffle. At $50 per ticket and 500 up for grabs, the plan is to use the resulting $25K to fill U-Hauls with cleaning supplies and household items for transitioning families.
