Around 20 employees spent the day weeding, planting, and landscaping to make an outdoor space optimal for City Blossoms to achieve their goals and so community members can enjoy the outdoor space. Members worked at the Marion Street Intergenerational Garden site, where healthy produce is harvested by and for local community members.

Since 2009, City Blossoms has made a difference across the District though its commitment to community-engaging programming and after-school opportunities. CRC volunteers look forward to giving back with this non-profit year after year.

Our members believe in the importance of functional outdoor space and experiences that come from such places, and how smart city planning can shape and transform lives. Supporting volunteers enjoyed the day in the spring sun and giving back to the local community.

CRC Arlington Office Food Drive Helps to Feed Families in Need

In time for the 2017 holiday season, CRC Arlington office participated in a food drive to raise non-perishable items for Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC), a charity with a rich history in community outreach near our corporate headquarters.

Between November 2 and December 12, “The Hunger [IS NOT A] Games” food drive raised almost 300 items, including canned fruit, soups, tomatoes, tuna and vegetables, as well as breakfast cereals, peanut butter, and cooking oil for families in need during the holiday season.

Themed to play off of hit series The Hunger Games, CRC Arlington office employees participated in a friendly inter-department competition to see which department or “district” could donate the most non-perishable items. The Accounting department won with an impressive showing of 207 items.

AFAC feeds 2,200 families every week by providing supplemental groceries to Arlington residents who cannot afford to purchase sufficient food to meet basic needs. CRC’s competition benefitted their 2017 Holiday campaign, which provided 3,300 families with food for holiday meals.
