RICHMOND, Va. – We’re Open Virginia is an initiative by CBS 6 to highlight some of the local businesses that are adapting this new normal of social distancing and using creativity to continue serving the community. Today we highlight just a few of our community friends who are supporting us and who need your support as well.

Virtual shoe shopping at its best

Spring cleaning made possible through virtual organizing sessions

Locally-owned company Abundance Organizing would usually work right alongside clients with home organizing and senior downsizing projects, but given our social distancing efforts, they have has taken to virtual organizing and have seen big successes! The team launched a Facebook group called “Home Organizing Support During COVID-19” to help you envision your space and your “stuff” differently. Take a look at before and after photos from recent virtual sessions! To schedule your virtual organizing session, visit their Facebook page or visit their website.
