“New CVC-MC Board starts their new year off BIG”

The Corporate Volunteer Council of Montgomery County (CVC-MC) board retreat was held on Tuesday, October 18 at Bethesda Green. In conjunction with its meeting, the CVC-MC board made 120 bag lunches for Shepherd’s Table in Silver Spring. Shepherd’s Table provides dinner meal service seven nights a week from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Since 1983, they have served over 1,076,000 meals to those who are hungry in our community. “The new Board of Directors had a great start to its new term. With the many needs of the County and its citizens, there are many opportunities to serve. The Directors contributed right away by setting a good example, rolling up their sleeves and making bag lunches for Shepherd’s Table,” said William B. Schroeder, Attorney-at-Law for Shulman Rogers Gandal Pordy & Ecker, P.A & 2012-2013 CVC-MC President. This activity was a part of the CVC’s contribution to Montgomery County’s Community Service Week. The bag lunches were delivered to Shepherd's Table who distributed them to individuals in need in Montgomery County. The lunch bags included a peanut butter & jelly sandwich, a juice box, cookies, carrots & an apple.
