Oakland 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. This is the third consecutive year Oakland has performed this activity for PGCPS. For this year Oakland donated approximately 10% of the County’s total backpacks goal.

Employee Ikea Mititelu planned and coordinated the myriad activities involved in this project.  Oakland Headquarters personnel then met to stuff the backpacks with kits of supplies, with differing configurations for elementary, middle and high school students. Ikea and other employees then delivered the backpacks to PGCPS. Staff at PGCPS Social Services expressed appreciation as follows: “The participation of partnering organizations, like Oakland Consulting Group, is essential in meeting the needs of our county's young people, and we wouldn't have been able to help those households without your generous support”.

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 third time participating in this program and I was very pleased to see the large number of backpacks delivered, it was a very rewarding exercise”.

The Capital Area Food Bank is the largest organization in the Washington metro area working to solve hunger and its companion problems: chronic undernutrition, heart disease, and obesity. By partnering with 444 community organizations in DC, MD, and VA, as well as delivering food directly into hard to reach areas, the CAFB is helping 540,000 people each year get access to good, healthy food. That’s 12% of our region’s mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, and grandparents.

Thirteen Oakland headquarters staff personnel went for the fourth year running as a volunteer team to pitch in at the large CAFB warehouse in Northeast DC. Team Oakland performed a new task this year, involving filling supplemental food boxes to be distributed to area seniors. Each box contained a variety of 18 packaged food items, and Team Oakland packed 6 pallets of boxes!  After packing the boxes, Team Oakland sorted a large quantity of apples. 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”.
