MetroStar Gives Back to the Community this Holiday Season

Written By: Rachel Teter

Reston, VA – MetroStar’s Collaborative Action of Responsible Employees for Society (CARES) Program participated in two holiday fundraisers this year, Cornerstones and Marine Corps Toys for Tots. 

Cornerstones 

Cornerstones is a non-profit organization providing support and human services for those in need, and they've been active in the Northern Virginia (NOVA) area for the last 50 years. MetroStar partnered with Cornerstones for their annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. This drive collects cash donations and builds food boxes for those in need during Thanksgiving. 

"Support from our staff, volunteers, and donors has helped make a fulfilling holiday possible for hundreds of families across NOVA this holiday season," Cornerstones wrote on their website. 

MetroStar's people donated and helped feed twelve families during this year's food drive.  

"Helping others during the holiday season is more important than ever with the ongoing struggles society faces during the pandemic. Our NOVA neighbors needed extra help this year, and everyone should have something warm to eat during the holidays," Allison, MetroStar's Principal Designer and CARES representative, said. "Cornerstones' mission is one we've been a part of for years, and we look forward to counting to help in the years to come."

Marine Corps Toys For Tots 

The Marine Corps Toys For Tots program is a national annual fundraiser that collects new, unwrapped toys and distributes them across the nation to children in need.

"The mission of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is to assist the U. S. Marine Corps in providing a tangible sign of hope to economically disadvantaged children at Christmas," the nonprofit wrote on their website. 

Despite many of MetroStar's people continuing to work remotely this season, our people collected 91 toys during this year's toy drive.
