Community Involvement

A Day in May

Each year Stone’s Office Equipment hosts The Ride of Patriots as they stop in Richmond on their ride across the country in a route towards Washington, DC. The Ride of Patriots is an annual event honoring veterans and service men and women.

“Traditionally, nearly 5,000 motorcycles join the Ride of the Patriot Harley-Davidson® to remember and honor those in uniform, who serve everyday and put their lives at risk to protect us and help in times of crisis. Not only is this ride for the men and women in the military, but also for the less publicized First Responders who have made sacrifices during their service.”

Stone’s A Day in May event also serves to honor our local heroes, and to showcase important local charitable organizations. Organizations have included The Henrico Police Foundation, Henrico Fire Foundation, The Jillian Fund and the Cameron Gallagher Foundation.

Other Supported Events:

Valor Awards

The Valor Awards are an annual event organized by Richmond’s Retail Merchants Association.

Through this event, local businesses and the community can share their thanks with all area responders and their families for their sacrifice of service. Awards will be presented to first responders who have been nominated for their acts of courageous valor, going above and beyond the call of duty.

We’re proud to have been sponsors of this great local event for three years running. This is a cause that touches on all of the things we are passionate about.
