Montgomery businesses engage in day of service

More than 10 Montgomery County businesses and corporations participated in landscaping projects at housing sites for formerly homeless adults and families for Workforce for Good, a day of service projects coordinated by Corporate Volunteer Council of Montgomery County in partnership with Potomac-based Shulman, Rogers, Gandal, Pordy, & Ecker P.A.

Eighty volunteers took part in all aspects of landscaping including raking leaves, putting new mulch down, planting flowers, trimming bushes, and more at nine permanent housing locations and a men’s emergency shelter operated by Montgomery County Coalition for the Homeless, a nonprofit that provides solutions to end homelessness through their permanent housing programs, Safe Haven first-step housing program, emergency shelter and supportive services to close to 1,600 men, women, and children.

“We couldn’t have been more thrilled to have such a strong show of support from the business community,” said Susie Sinclair-Smith. “Their volunteer service demonstrates the strong presence of volunteer service that exists in Montgomery County.”

Businesses and corporations that participated in this day included: ActivEngage, C. Fox Communications, Chazin & Company, DeLeon & Stang, CPAs & Advisors, Gaithersburg Germantown Chamber of Commerce, M&T Bank, Maryland Public Health Association, Monument Bank, Shulman, Rogers, Gandal, Pordy, & Ecker P.A., SNI Companies and The Gazette.
