Here at CJM, 2019 was all about giving back to the community we love. We focused on spending time with organizations that enrich the lives of others by providing support and empowerment. Please click through the galleries below to see what we have been up to.
We were pleased to collaborate twice this year with Northern Virginia Family Services (NVFS). In May, we enjoyed soaking up some vitamin D with our very energetic friends at the NVFS’s Head Start center in Arlington. It was a beautiful day for bouncing and bubbles! In October, we were able to help restock, organize and prepare food supply bags with the great folks at NVFS’s SERVE campus in Manassas.
Also in October, CJM team members proudly supported The American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in DC. We have three breast cancer survivors at CJM and our own Jen Loebs was the 2019 Survivor Speaker.
Volunteerism is encouraged and celebrated at CJM. Shonda and Tina rolled with the Tuesday Night Tandems. This group provides sport and activity on tandem bicycles for visually impaired people in the Washington DC area. Sporting pink kilts to support the National Breast Center Foundation, they also participated in Alexandria’s Scottish Walk Parade.
We also enjoyed participating in local sporting events and races.
We cherish all the fabulous memories we made in 2019 with our work family and our home families.
