2018 was another successful year of giving back to our community. We again collaborated with Northern Virginia Family Services (NVFS), participating in two out-of-office community service days and holding an in-office holiday toy drive.
Despite the record rain and a postponement from the spring, our patience was rewarded with a sunny fall day to hold a field day for three to five year olds at NVFS’s Head Start center in Arlington.
Later in the fall, we sorted shelves, cleaned food delivery trucks, repackaged rice and even donated a chest freezer to NVFS’s SERVE campus in Manassas.
In December, we held an in-office toy drive to support NVFS’s holiday toy drive and collected two car loads worth of toys. NVFS was working to provide gifts to over 2,000 children in the Northern Virginia area in 2018.
In addition, we continued to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and made monetary donations to Ducks Unlimited, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, American Brain Tumor Association, the CFP Board’s diversity initiative, The Foundation for Financial Planning, and Upcycle among other charitable organizations.
