MCB Cares This Season!

On November 17th, the team at Matthews, Carter & Boyce volunteered with Food for Others for our annual meal packing event, packing 600 meals for deserving children and their families in our community. MCB packed non-perishable bundles of food to be delivered to school age children that do not have adequate food at home. These food packages are delivered to children on a regular basis at 45 schools throughout Fairfax County. During the 2022-2023 school year, Food for Others distributed over 3,700 of these packs every week throughout the year (Over 100,000 total meals!)

Every year, MCB also partners with the Salvation Army’s 2023 Angel Tree Program. The success of the Angel Tree Program depends on people agreeing to "adopt" an angel or angels, purchasing new items as Christmas gifts. For many of the families who turn to The Salvation Army for help, the toys and clothes they receive through the Angel Tree Program are the only gifts their children will have to open on Christmas morning. This year, MCB adopted 20 angels. Additionally, MCB will sponsor 15 Salvation Army kettle signs this holiday season; funds collected from the kettles provide emergency rental, utility, and food assistance, along with independent supportive housing for mothers and their children; adult addiction rehabilitation and treatment; disaster services, youth programs, music programs, and spiritual care for families in our community.
