Experis Technology Group sponsors Meal Pack event providing 1.5 million meals to the D.C. area
Washington, D.C. – On Sunday, September 11, 2016, Experis Technology Group of Bethesda, MD, participated in AARP’s second annual Celebration of Service Meal Pack event. Experis was a community sponsor and several Experis employees volunteered packing meals at the all-day event.
AARP, along with the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and 9/11 Day of Service, brought thousands of volunteers from a wide range of ages together for a day of action on the National Mall to combat senior poverty and hunger in the metropolitan area. Washington, D.C. has more than 15,000 older adults who are struggling with poverty. More than 1.5 million meals were packed at this incredibly successful event.
The AARP Foundation will work with the Capital Area Food Bank to distribute the meals across the D.C. metropolitan area. AARP Foundation president Lisa Marsh Ryerson, expressed gratitude for the “incredibly intergenerational crowd” who attended the event to “pay tribute” to the 9/11 tragedy and praised the community’s involvement, also noting that over 20 percent of older adults in the DC area are “food insecure.”
