Company’s Food Donation Supports Vienna-Based Charity CHO

VIENNA, Virginia — Over the past few years, a company has established a holiday tradition of collecting food donations to support the Vienna-based charity Commission for Helping Others.

Capstone Strategic, a management consultancy based in the Tysons area, provided hundreds of pounds of preserved food to the committee on Monday. This donation will support the committee’s emergency food pantry.

The Capstone Cares Comfort & Joy Food Drive, part of the company’s Capstone Cares charity, was launched in November. The company received donations from all over the country and made a profit to help others on the committee.

Capstone CEO and Founder David Braun said: “I would like to thank all of the generous donors who have helped CAPstone support his CHO to bring a little comfort and joy to his neighbors in need this holiday season.”

The Committee for Helping Others is a volunteer organization that provides food and other assistance to those in need in the Vienna, Oakton, Dun Loring and Merrifield areas. The emergency food pantry requires a reservation. Gift and food certificate programs are also available during the holiday season. We accept donations including grocery store gift cards.

Since 2020, Patch has partnered with Feeding America to help raise awareness in local communities about hunger, a persistent national problem exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Feeding America, which supports 200 food banks and 60,000 local meal programs across the United States, estimates that nearly 34 million people, including 9 million children (about 1 in 6 Americans), are food insecure. I’m assuming you’re living with it. This is a patch social good project. Feeding America receives 100% of donations. Find out how to donate in your area or find a food pantry near you.
