The Spirit of Giving
The Charles Reid Foundation (CRF) is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation founded by the family of the late Mr. Charles R. Reid Sr.
The Foundation was established to continue the “Tradition of the Christmas Spirit” while serving underprivileged youth in North Richmond and the surrounding communities.
Our Annual Children's Christmas Party is a Charles Reid tradition that welcomes the spirit of giving and supports children and their families during the holiday season. Additionally, CRF has worked with the school districts to provide financial assistance and supplies to students in need.
We focus on serving the youth as we honor the legacy of Charles R. Reid, Sr.
