Loudoun Medical Group’s Charitable Foundation was created in 2006 in response to the massive needs associated with Hurricane Katrina. The foundation’s goal was to facilitate the provision of volunteer health care services to Hurricane Katrina victims in the Gulf Coast region. The mission of the foundation remains consistent. Six years later, LMG’s Charitable Foundation strives to facilitate the provision of medical care in areas affected by natural disasters or adverse economic conditions. The foundation has served Loudoun and surrounding communities. Historically the foundation has worked with Loudoun Interfaith in numerous food collection drives; Loudoun Free Clinic with charitable giving and professional services from LMG physicians and other providers; and Inova’s Charitable Foundations in multiple fundraisers and other philanthropic events.

The fire service first started in 1883 when the Berryville Town Council purchased a horse drawn “hook and ladder truck” from a manufacturer in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. John H. Enders was born July 19, 1862, in Winchester Virginia. Mr. Enders moved to Berryville in 1892. Mr. Enders started the John H. Enders Funeral Home and was a funeral director and master furniture maker. Mr. Enders was the originator and loyal supporter of many carnivals and bazaars. John H. Enders saw a need for an organized fire department. In March 1900, “Captain John”, as he would become known, and the town council organized the Berryville Fire Department. His untiring efforts allowed the town to acquire the finest firefighting equipment. In 1926, with Captain John’s help the first piece of motorized fire apparatus was purchased, a 1926 Seagrave pumper. It was housed in Mr. Enders Funeral home. Mr. Enders was a resident of Berryville for just under 40 years. Captain John died Friday June 23, 1933 in Berryville at his home of a heart ailment. It was not until after his death that the Berryville Fire Department was named John H. Enders Fire Company. Many things were said by his peers in the newspaper at the time of his death. “No citizen in Clarke County is better known than Captain John”, “Always helped in a quiet way”, “People always had a high degree of respect for him”. Captain Johns son Charles J. Enders was born June 28, 1895 and was also a funeral director and a member of the fire company, he died August 10, 1989.

The campus style plan allows physical separation of court-ordered and victimized kids while maximizing captured open space and limiting site disturbance.

The REMI Foundation (Remembering Every Mothers Infant) was founded by a small group of faithful and caring medical professionals with a heart to help mothers and families that experience a loss of their new baby. The money will go to support their medical, funeral, and unplanned expenses that arise through their infant passing during or after birth. This fund fills a void that is often unspoken of, unplanned for, and rarely anticipated. Our community can make a difference, and we want to allow other families and mothers to use this foundation to ease the financial burden and worry of this experience, allowing families a peaceful time to grieve and heal.
