Many children in Fairfax County schools near our Northern Virginia headquarters are eligible for free and reduced lunch. School administrators worry these children might go hungry over the weekend, so on Friday, October 12, CRC CARES members volunteered with an organization focused on addressing that issue. Mid-Atlantic employees partnered with Food For Others to support their P3 program – assembling “Power Packs” of non-perishable foods for the school children to take home over the weekend.
Through our construction company’s #CBGGives initiative, employees from various offices spent the day sorting and assembling more than 300 Power Packs for three local schools.
Food and fuel are important for learning. The Power Packs help students stay healthy and arrive at school ready to learn.
With the help from other community entities, Food for Others is positioned to distribute over 70,000 packs in 2018/2019 to 28 Fairfax County elementary schools. For more information about the program and Food for Others, please visit their website.
