Rockville, MD – During the last week of June, Dixon Hughes Goodman of the Metro DC market paired up with local organizations for a canned food drive to help fight hunger in the area. The Tysons office worked with Food for Others, a Fairfax-based nonprofit organization and the largest distributer of food to those in need in Northern Virginia, and the Rockville office joined with the Manna Food Bank, the main food bank in Montgomery County that serves more than 2.7 million individuals in the community.
As part of Dixon Hughes Goodman’s GIVES (Go. Invest. Volunteer. Engage. Serve.) initiative, the firm’s 32 offices come together once a year to support a collective cause that will impact the communities in which it is located. Held from June 20 to June 27, the “Count the Cans” food drive focused on collecting monetary and non-perishable food donations, all in an effort to alleviate the suffering of nearly 49 million people who do not get enough to eat regularly. This year’s theme, “One CAN make a difference,” inspired action in all offices.
“People are the heart of our core values and we strive to embody our values in the work we do to enrich the lives of others,” said Matt Snow, Chief Executive Officer for Dixon Hughes Goodman. “Because food banks have an increased need for donations during the summer months when children are out of school, we have a tremendous opportunity to make a meaningful impact on our communities during this season of great need.”
“Sometimes, we forget that there are so many people who struggle to feed their families on a daily basis. I am so proud that Dixon Hughes Goodman came together to provide so much to local organizations, ensuring that there will be less empty mouths” said Regional Managing Partner, Brian Carlton.
