4-8-16 – XLA Lends-A-Hand Kicks off First CAFB Event – Friday, April 8th

XLA Lends-A-Hand kicked off their first volunteer event last Friday, April 8th at the DC Capital Area Food Bank

Twelve XLA volunteers sorted through 6,000 lbs. of items donated by the community in under 2 hours, great work team! At the end of the event, volunteers were educated about the low donation amounts during the Spring and Summer months. The CAFB receives an influx of donations during the Winter months when food drives are more abundant. It is during the warmer times of the year that the CAFB struggles the most to keep pantry items stocked and meal service programs running. XLA urges our employees to give back by donating unopened, nonperishable food items to either the DC or NOVA CAFB Warehouses.
