Thank You, PricewaterhouseCoopers!

By Dylan Menguy March 18, 2013

On Friday, March 8, a group of graduate school students from PricewaterhouseCoopers’ internship program volunteered in our food distribution center to pack weekend food bags for around 2,000 children in our area. Their teamwork and organized assembly line of responsibilities in the packing process made quick work of the task, helping the Capital Area Food Bank to reach a greater number of food insecure people in the Washington metro area.
Every weekend, food is distributed to children in the area through our Weekend Bag Program, which supplies supplemental grocery items to children and their families that partner with the Food For Kids Department at the CAFB. Often, the packing is done by groups of dedicated volunteers. Each year, the food bank hosts nearly 18,000 volunteers, which saves us around $2.2 million.
Thank you to PwC’s interns who came out to help us feed our neighbors in need. PwC actively engages its interns in service opportunities as part of their professional development. To learn more about how to get involved in volunteering as part of a group or individually, please click here.
