Back to school season is looking different for everyone this fall with the “new norm” of social distancing, and families can use all the help they can get as they prepare for the challenges of the academic year. Thankfully, our Guidehouse team is ready and willing to help families in need meet this challenge!
This past month, our team partnered with Cornerstones to provide underprivileged families in Northern Virginia with critical school supplies. Since 1970, Cornerstones has been advocating for those struggling to make ends meet in Northern Virginia. During Fiscal Year 2019, Cornerstones served almost 16,000 individuals – including 2,576 families and 5,373 children – experiencing homelessness, poverty, and inequity in Northern Virginia.
This summer, Guidehouse put together a team to support Cornerstones’ Back to School Drive. Our teammates donated supplies and promoted the opportunity to friends, family and colleagues to maximize the impact of this amazing giving opportunity. Our Guidehouse team contribution was large enough to benefit an entire class of 31 third graders! On behalf of the whole company, we extend a huge thank you to those individuals who participated. The impact you’ve made to those children is immeasurable.
