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 second year running as a volunteer team to pitch in at the large CAFB warehouse in Northeast DC, sorting several 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, completing the sorting of all food available. 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”.
