Our Community Connect is the Black Professional’s Hub for community support under The Connect 757 in partnership with Hampton Roads BlackNonprofit Alliance. Our mission is to build partnerships with Black-led nonprofit organizations in Hampton Roads to provide support for volunteer opportunities and leadership needs.
As the premier organization for Hampton Roads Black Professionals and The Connect 757, we aspire to create a pipeline of qualified volunteers to fulfill a multitude of leadership duties and roles many organizations need to improve the longevity and sustainability of Black-led nonprofits in Hampton Roads.
All members help us create robust volunteer opportunities that support local Black-led non-profit organizations and their missions.

Inaugural Santa Look’s Like Me Event
In December 2022, Mickey Wright Real Estate and The Connect 757 team up to host “Santa Looks Like Me!” – Photos with Santa and Community Toy Drive at Waterside District during, “Miracle on Waterside Drive.” Kids will be able to take a digital photo with one of the diverse Santa’s available. We invited Santa’s with a variety of hue’s that will reflect the diversity of the 757 community. We want our children to see Santa’s that look like them. All photos will be available digitally and emailed to the email provided at registration.
In addition to receiving holiday photos with Santa, we are asking families to bring one toy to donate for our community toy drive. All toys collected were donated to the YWCA and Broadcreek’s Angel Tree.
