Our amazing partners from CORT Events held a food drive during their Springtime Soiree in Washington, DC last month! CORT Events hosted the event on May 9 to show appreciation to their clients, industry partners, and colleagues. They also asked all 200 of their guests to bring non-perishable food donations to help us fight hunger in our nation’s capital.

We always say that offering incentives are a great way to drive donations, and CORT Events agrees! For every 3 non-perishable food items they donated, attendees were awarded with a raffle ticket. CORT Events raffled off fabulous prizes donated by various venues & vendors, including home sound systems, spa days, dinner cruises on the Potomac, and a weekend getaway for two in Philadelphia! The result? More than 340 lbs. of food collected in one night! That’s enough to provide 285 meals! All of the donations were delivered to the Capital Area Food Bank.

CORT has been instrumental in the expansion of our Multi-Family program. With branches all across the country, CORT sends their own trucks out to pick up donations that are being collected at more than 1,000 apartment communities nationwide.

More than 76,000 people in Washington, D.C. face hunger every single day, including 1 in 5 children.

We are so thankful for our generous partners who donate their time, energy, and resources to help towards putting an end to hunger. Thank you so much to CORT Events for this amazing contribution to the community and for your commitment to our cause.
