In partnership with CBG Building Company's "Team CBG," which runs internal team building and culture initiatives, the CRC CARES Foundation served lunch at So Others Might Eat (SOME) yesterday.
During our day volunteering, CRC CARES members worked both lunch shifts at the SOME Kitchen in downtown Washington, DC and made a monetary donation to cover the cost of the food being served. Volunteers were staffed on different crews responsible for a wide array of duties including food prep, drink service, food service, and cleanup. Through SOME's and CRC CARES' hard work, over 500 of the District's neediest were able to enjoy a warm lunch in a safe and clean environment.
Founded in 1970 by Father Horace McKenna and an interfaith group of priests, ministers, and lay persons to help the poor and homeless of our nation's capital. SOME meets the immediate daily needs of the people they serve with food, clothing, and healthcare. They help break the cycle of homelessness by offering services, such as affordable housing, job training, addiction treatment, and counseling to the poor, the elderly, and individuals with mental illness.
