  Remembering Hunter Richardson
November 8 - 30, 2015
Hunter Richardson was killed by a drunk driver Thanksgiving weekend in 2009. He lived in Suffolk and graduated from Nansemond-Suffolk Academy (2004) and Virginia Tech (2008). In order to help honor his life and giving spirit, his family asks that you consider donating to Suffolk Humane Society and the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore.

Suffolk Humane is truly honored to be included in this memorial campaign and would be gratious for any gifts made in Hunter's name. For more information on the campaign, please view the flyer (PDF).
