Windward's Volunteer and Activities Committee Expands Local Outreach in 2013 by Volunteering at the Embry Rucker Community Shelter

Windward's Team Volunteering

With more and more people in our community experiencing economic stress, our volunteers make it possible to meet the needs of families and individuals every step of the way

Windward IT Solutions, the pioneer in Service-Centric IT solutions, continues to celebrate it’s fifteenth anniversary by sending a team of employees to the Embry Rucker Community Shelter, part of Reston Interfaith, to volunteer in their soup kitchen and to lend a hand during their Saturday dinner service. Windward understands the hardships faced by many individuals during these trying times and recognizes the importance in helping those in our community on both an individual and corporate level.

The Embry Rucker Community Shelter provides safe emergency housing for families and individuals and are dedicated to help people overcome the circumstances that led to their homelessness and facilitate their transition to stable housing. "It was a pleasure to have the employees of Windward IT Solutions here as guest servers. We are always happy to engage the business community in volunteering with us, as it affords them the opportunity to see first-hand the work we do, and how great the needs of the homeless are in our community," said Susan Alger."We are hoping to involve the team at Windward for future events and appreciate their commitment to those in need. With more and more people in our community experiencing economic stress, our volunteers make it possible to meet the needs of families and individuals every step of the way.”

Windward hopes to expand our relationship with Reston Interfaith by volunteering on new projects and initiatives. “Volunteering and supporting the communities where our employees live and work is an important part of our mission" said Sean McDermott, Windward IT Solutions CEO and Founder. “For this reason we maintain an internal Employee Volunteer Committee that works very hard to build strategic partnerships with nonprofit organizations focused on long-term and meaningful results, knowing that we can really make a difference”
