Employees from Herndon's Windward IT Solutions celebrated the company's 15th anniversay by volunteering at the Embry Rucker Community Shelter recently.
The company, which provides service-centric IT solutions, volunteered at the Embry Rucker soup kitchen, lending a hand during the Saturday dinner service last weekend.
The shelter is part of Reston Interfaith's programs. According to a Windward press release, the company understands the hardships faced by many people in recent years and recognizes the importance of helping those people.
The Embry Rucker Community Shelter provides emergency housing for families and individuals, helping them to overcome their circumstances and eventually find stable housing.
"It was a pleasure to have the employees of Windward IT Solutions here as guest servers," said Susan Alger, volunteer and resource manager, in a press release. "We are always happy to engage the business community in volunteering with us, as it affords them the opportunity to see first-hand the work we do, and how great the needs of the homeless are in our community."
"We are hoping to involve the team at Windward for future events and appreciate their commitment to those in need," Alger said. "With more and more people in our community experiencing economic stress, our volunteers make it possible to meet the needs of families and individuals every step of the way.”
Windward said the company hopes to expand its relationship with Reston Interfaith by continuing to volunteer on new projects and initiatives.
“Volunteering and supporting the communities where our employees live and work is an important part of our mission" said Sean McDermott, Windward IT Solutions CEO and Founder.
“For this reason we maintain an internal Employee Volunteer Committee that works very hard to build strategic partnerships with nonprofit organizations focused on long-term and meaningful results, knowing that we can really make a difference," McDermott said.
