HCCA Career Fair

In late July the Heavy Construction Contractors Association (HCCA) partnered with local nonprofits, OP3 and the Department of Family Services (DFS) to hold a construction job fair. Clients had on the spot interviews, information and advice on how to land local construction jobs. (Pictured Ken Garrison, HCCA; Karen Garvin, AHT Insurance; and Mouly Aloumouati, DFS)

I really appreciate your assistance with the #TysonsCares September Month of Giving. It is our pleasure to have OP3 as a partner. You are amazing partners!

Hunger doesn't take a summer vacation. Over the summer Wegmans grocery stores in Maryland and Virginia supported an incredibly successful two week food drive that netted more than 109,968 lbs of food for the region. For Fairfax that translated into 8000lbs for the Capital Area Food Bank and 24,442 lbs for Food for Others. This is on top of their "Check Out Hunger" efforts earlier in 2016 that delivered more than $80,000 to Food for Others and $41,000 to Capital Area Food Bank.

Thanks to Wegmans for helping the hungry in Fairfax!
