Date: December 1, 2012
Location: College Park, MD
The 2012 holiday charity collection focused on the survivors of Hurricane Sandy, which caused devastating damage to parts of New York and New Jersey in late October 2012. Over $600 was donated to the American Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy disaster relief with staff contributions matched by the company. In addition, staff also collected supplies for Health Care for the Homeless, including gently used clothing, personal care items, canned goods, toys, food and other items for homeless individuals and families. The Baltimore-based non-profitprovides pediatric and adult medical care, mental health services, social work and case management, addiction treatment, dental care, vision assistance, HIV services, outreach, supportive housing, and access to education and employment to thousands of homeless individuals and families.
