From December 1 to December 15, Talent Acquisition Manager Tana Papinova led a donation initiative alongside Firm Administrator Linda Murphy and Document Management Specialist Sal Attanasio for the Capital Area Food Bank. Tana encouraged all staff to fill two donation bins in Councilor, Buchanan & Mitchell’s Bethesda and DC offices with canned and non-perishable goods. At the end of the collection period, Tana had several boxes filled with donations for the food bank. She also collected $1,050 in direct donations. Tana said she was inspired by the Capital Area Food Bank’s calls for donations and plans another donation drive at CBM in the next coming months.
The Capital Area Food Bank is an organization that helps feed families struggling with hunger in the DC-metro area. All the food donated to them is distributed through the food bank’s network of 444 hunger-relief organizations across Washington, DC, Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties in Maryland, the city of Alexandria, and Arlington, Fairfax, and Prince William Counties in Virginia. Each year, the organization feeds nearly 540,000 individuals and families fighting hunger in the region.
