Giving That Matters: 5,000 Pounds Packed at the Capital Area Food Bank

26 Feb 2015


Sol Systems CEO Yuri Horwitz and CFO George Ashton

Last week, the Sol Systems team volunteered at the Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB), an organization dedicated to providing food to the hungry in the Washington metro area. In just a three-hour period, the team sorted over 5,000 pounds of food into 2,200 bags to feed families in need. The organization distributes over 42 million pounds of food every year with the help from partner organizations and volunteers.

Sol Systems launched an annual canned foods drive in 2013 to support CAFB’s efforts. After donating 180 pounds of food in 2013, the team more than doubled its previous record by collecting 414 pounds in 2014.

Volunteering with CAFB  – and other community organizations – is essential to Sol Systems’ corporate culture, and its Giving that Matters Program. We are relentless in our commitment to organizations that improve the environment, social equity, and the communities in which we live and work.
