|Drivestream Gives Back USA
|Below are the organizations Drivestream has hand selected to work with and have been working with throughout the past few months. Drivestream wanted to concentrate our efforts in the community as well as around the world.|
Loudoun Interfaith Relief
LIR provides food to prepare three nutritionally-balanced meals for three days. As a non-profit, they depend on the generosity of the community to make food and monetary donations.
MarineParents.com, Inc., was founded to provide support, information, and services to Marines and their family members. Which in turn helps create opportunities for the public to support our troops through the organization's outreach programs
Volunteers of America
The Loudoun Country Homeless Shelter program provides emergency shelter for homeless people, helping them to stabilize their housing situation and to regain self-sufficiency.
Loudoun Interfaith ReliefDrivestream US has partnered with Loudoun Interfaith Relief (http://www.interfaithrelief.org/) as an Industry and Community Partner.
As the population of Loudoun County has increased, so has the number of individuals falling below the poverty line. This past year, Loudoun Interfaith Relief directly served over 16,000 families through its food pantry efforts. Their mission is simple: Feed the hungry by providing emergency food assistance to any person or family in need who lives in Loudoun County.
LIR provides food to prepare three nutritionally-balanced meals for three days. As a non-profit, they depend on the generosity of the community to make food and monetary donations. They would not have been able to operate without the support they receive from volunteers like Drivestream. We have made a commitment to them to provide resources for their food warehouse and their events. We will also manage various food drives within our company.
MarineParents.comThe United States does not provide adequate supplies to our military, so Drivestream has volunteered to collect and donate materials to our marines overseas.
In May of 2015, Drivestream held a care package drive to support our deployed Marines in Afghanistan. On the last day of the two-week event, we gathered in the main conference room to pack all of the collected items and shipped them off to our sponsor company, MarineParents. From there, the volunteers have a larger collection date in July, where they ship all boxes to Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan where the supplies are limited.
Collecting supplies and sending them overseas is one way that we can ensure our American troops are taken care of when fighting for our country. Drivestream will continue to hold care package drives throughout the year.
We look forward to always supporting our Military!
Volunteers of AmericaInterview Clothing for Loudoun County Homeless Shelter
The Loudoun Country Homeless Shelter program, operated by Volunteers of America (VOA), provides 45 emergency shelter beds for up to 89 days for homeless people, helping them to stabilize their housing situation and to regain self-sufficiency. The program serves families, single women, and men. In addition, the program provides food, laundry facilities, showers, and case management to the homeless population.
During the month of June, Drivestream employees collected and donated men and women’s interview clothing. Since the homeless shelter is local to the Drivestream Headquarters in Virginia, we were able to visit the shelter and drop off the donations personally. Helping the homeless shelter is going to be a continuous project for Drivestream by collecting more donations throughout the year.
AmeriCaresEmergency Disaster Relief Funds –
Global disasters are unexpected events that are often tragic and fatal. They require immediate attention and supplies towards their relief, including medical supplies as well as monetary donations in a short amount of time. Drivestream is devoted to dedicate funds to these disasters as they happen to support areas of tragedy around the world no matter the event or distance.
In April of 2015, there was a 7.8 magnitude earthquake in Nepal that caused significant destruction. Over 4,000 people lost their lives and many were displaced due to the effects and aftermath of the tragedy. Employees of Drivestream across the United States quickly gathered monetary funds which was sent to Nepal contributing to the relief efforts made by AmeriCares. Together we raised over $8,600.00 in less than two days and will continue to provide support when disaster strikes.
