Community Involvement Committee Update

In a previous post we introduced you to Consolidated’s Community Involvement Committee, the group that guides our volunteer efforts. The Committee, and the rest of our team, have been busier than ever making a difference in the second half of 2017. Here are some highlights.

Consolidated’s Community Involvement Committee recently participated in:

  • Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes in Frederick
  • The Preston Mitchum, Jr. Foundation’s Annual Back to School Drive, benefiting children of low-income families in the Baltimore area
  • The Helping Up Mission in Baltimore, where we served dinner
  • Fallfest Luncheon and Food Drive to benefit the Reisterstown Food Pantry

Still to come in 2017:

  • We’ll be walking in BARCStoberfest this coming weekend in Baltimore to benefit BARCS (Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter)
  • Back to the Helping Up Mission to serve dinner again in November
  • Wreaths Across America in December at Garrison Forest Veteran’s Cemetery

The Consolidated team has been very active outside of our Committee activities, too:

  • Lee Dixon and her husband volunteer with Young Life and were leaders on a group trip to Colorado
  • Carole Hoover has been a group leader for several mission trips to Guatemala
  • Lisa Poole regularly volunteers as a mentor with the Good News Jail & Prison Ministry in Carroll County
  • Krissy Jones and Dan Workmeister were part of a relay team at the Baltimore Running Festival, raising money for the education and prevention of adolescent melanoma

Our deepest gratitude to all listed here, as well as the Consolidated team members who regularly offer their time and talents to coach youth sports teams, participate in soup kitchens and local food banks, and find many other ways to serve their communities. We’re very proud of our unsung heroes who make our communities better!
