In early November, CBM’s Tax Manager Lucy Gomez volunteered at Manna Food Center and Clarksburg CAN – Community Assistance Network to package non-perishable goods for homeless shelters in the DC Metropolitan Area. She spent a total of 10 hours volunteering at the two locations and prepared a number of meals in the process.
She worked tirelessly alongside other volunteers to get together as many meals as possible. Manna Food Center is a Silver Spring, MD-based not-for-profit organization dedicated to ending hunger through food distribution, education and advocacy. Since July 1, 2019 they’ve served over 50,510 participants in the program and have distributed over 3.3 million pounds of food.
Clarksburg CAN is a “network of churches and organizations working together to promote short- and long-term solutions to the problem of hunger in the Clarksburg community”. Please visit the Clarksburg CAN and Manna Food Center‘s websites for more information and to get involved.
This was Lucy’s second charitable initiative as part of CBM100-Charities. She also supported a group called Rise Against Hunger to prepare meals for hospital patients in late 2019. Read more here.
