Allied donated several boxes of food to the Howard University/WHUR/Capital Area Food Bank effort this morning. Additionally, a dedicated group of Allied employees showed up at 7am to help support the fundraising effort by assisting the “pail brigade” in an effort to collect “spot donations” from vehicles and people that came by the event. While there is no official count for how much Allied raised, each employee reported collecting $200 — $300 from the cars, buses and taxis that drove by. The event was fun and rewarding for Allied, and all agreed that it felt great to give back to the community. Plans are already underway for Allied’s next volunteer effort.
