1Source teamed up with So Others Might Eat (SOME) this holiday season in support of preventing homelessness. There are 110,000 people living in poverty in our nation’s capital and 7,298 of these are homeless men, women and children.
1Source provided Thanksgiving dinner baskets to So Others Might Eat. These baskets consisted of several delicious items including turkey, yams, gravy, mashed potatoes, and macaroni and cheese and were given to several families in need. Many employees at 1Source volunteered to organize and deliver 100 Thanksgiving baskets. 1Source’s CEO, William Teel, has a profound appreciation in supporting the local community. He said, “We are saddened by the state of homelessness and hunger in the DC metro area and are proud to help provide for those in need especially during the holiday season.”
