Oakland Consulting Group, Inc. (Oakland) on August 11, 2016, delivered 100 backpacks filled with school supplies to the Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) Social Services Department. The County distributes these backpacks directly to foster, homeless and other at-risk children at the beginning of the school year. The donation was funded by contributions from Oakland employees and contract personnel, with the Company providing a 100% match. In addition to the assembled backpacks, Oakland donated a substantial quantity of additional school supplies which the County will supply to students. Oakland initiated this activity for the prior school year and intends to make this an annual event. For this year Oakland donated approximately 10% of the County’s total backpacks goal.

Employee Meghan Tarulis shopped the various back-to-school bargains to maximize the amount of school supplies included in our donation.  Oakland Headquarters personnel then met to stuff the backpacks with kits of supplies, with differing configurations for elementary, middle and high school students. Meghan and other employees then delivered the backpacks to PGCPS. Personnel at PGCPS Social Services expressed appreciation for Oakland helping “realize the future dreams of our children”.

Cedric Nash, Oakland CEO, stated: “I am extremely appreciative of this contribution and work by our employees and a number of our contract employees who are out on customer projects. Serving our community is one of Oakland’s top priorities and there is no finer example of what we do than this effort. This was our second time participating in this program and I was very pleased to see the increase our number of backpacks delivered compared to last year, it was a very rewarding exercise”.

The mission of the Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB) is to feed those who suffer from hunger in the Washington metro area by acquiring food and distributing it through its network of partner agencies, distributing annually 45 million pounds of food to nearly 500,000 people in the region struggling with hunger. The CAFB offers volunteers the opportunity to “Learn, Care, Act” by donating time which saves the CAFB over $2.5 million in annual expenses.

Fourteen Oakland headquarters staff personnel went for the third year running as a volunteer team to pitch in at the large CAFB warehouse in Northeast DC, sorting over ten tons of donated food items into numerous categories for shipment to individual CAFB partner agencies for direct distribution to the needy. The effort began with a brief training session, followed by individual Oakland personnel taking boxes of unsorted foods and placing individual items into categorized bins. The Oakland team worked diligently, filling all available outbound containers. Upon completion of the volunteer work the Oakland team went to dinner together at a nearby restaurant.

Cedric E. Nash, Oakland CEO, noted “I am very grateful to our staff for their time and effort for this important cause again this year.  Giving back to the community is an important element of Oakland’s mission, so we welcomed the opportunity to help at CAFB”.
