We believe in giving back to the community around us, and encourage all our employees to identify and support the causes closest to their hearts. Here’s just a snapshot of some of the organizations our team members support:
As twelve-year members of the metroBethesda Rotary, Wendy and Larry attend meetings, volunteer, and perform community outreach throughout the DC area. Recognizing the positive impact the Rotary has on the local and international community, both Wendy and Larry are active leaders within the organization.
As part of Wendy’s many Rotary contributions, she co-founded an annual charity golf tournament known as the “Purple Tee Golf Classic”. This event benefits local military support charities to provide services for returning military veterans.
Kids in Need Distributors (KIND)
Kids in Need Distributors, an organization that distributes food via schools throughout Montgomery County, Maryland, holds a special place in our team’s heart. As active volunteers, the Merit321 team values the opportunity to ensure that school children in Montgomery County have plenty to eat outside of school.
Bethesda Cares is an organization dedicated to ending homelessness in Montgomery County. The organization makes strides towards averting homelessness by way of its Eviction and Utility Shut-Off Prevention Program, and works to ease homelessness via its outreach program. The Merit321 team is proud to work alongside Bethesda Cares to support and empower the most vulnerable residents of Montgomery County.
The Dwelling Place
The Merit321 team actively supports and volunteers with The Dwelling Place, a nonprofit organization that helps low-income families in Montgomery County achieve housing and financial stability by providing two years of safe and affordable housing along with education, financial and life skills, and career enhancement.
