Yesterday, August 15, F&P employees from our Herndon office made a visit to Cornerstones in Reston, Virignia to assist the organization in preparing for the upcoming school year. Our staff aided other volunteers in sorting school supplies by grade and gender, making sure each group of supplies included every item from the supply list provided by Fairfax County. The completed stacks of school supplies were then placed into bags to be delivered to nearly 3,000 students (grades K-12) in the Reston-Herndon area. In addition to the school supplies, nearly 3000 of the students will receive new backpacks. Cornerstones relies on volunteers and donations to make this initiative successful. The Cornerstones volunteer outing was one of many community endeavors the firm has implemented in 2018.
