APG Sponsors “Light the Way 5k”

On September 10th, 2011, APG’s CFO, Mike Stehly participated in The Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind’s First Annual “Light the Way 5k” fun Run & Walk at Nationals Park.
Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind provides many needed services and programs for the Blind and visually impaired in the Washington D.C. area. Therefore, it is so important to raise awareness as well as the necessary dollars to perpetuate and expand these vital services. Between Mike’s personal fundraising, and APG’s corporate donation, $12,000 was donated on Mike’s behalf—the race’s largest donation!

Thanks to all who donated, came out to support or volunteered!

Spreading the Holiday Joy to local Reston families

For the past few years, APG has teamed with a local charity to “adopt” families in the community who are less fortunate. This year, APG continued the annual tradtion by partnering with Reston’s Interfaith organization and signed up to adopt 56 children. The donations of our employees exceeded our goal of $2800 and as you can imagine, we were running out of space in our office to store the gifts. The bags and boxes of gifts crept from the cubicles and eventually took over our CEO’s office.

We are proud to have employees who gave such gracious donations–our efforts would not have been as succesful without them! This holiday season we hope you find a moment to think about all you are greatful for.

Have a safe and joyful holiday!

APG kicks off the holiday season by participating in Crossroads’ Warming the Homeless

For the second year in a row, APG gave a financial donation to Warming the Homeless, an annual event hosted by Crossroads which distributes coats and boots to homeless men, women and children living in Washington, DC. This year, a combined total of 400 coats and boots were distributed!

With a winter predicted to be even worse than last year, the recipients expressed a deep level of gratitude. APG is humbled to give back to the city, as Washington, DC frequently ranks as one of the cities with the highest percentage of homelessness.

I will post updates as APG continues to spreads the holiday joy and gives back to the community this holiday season. One initiative that we are currently involved in is Adopt-a-Child, hosted by Interfaith. APG has committed to adopting 56 children, so we could really use your donation of an unwrapped gift or a financial donation. Our gift drop-off deadline is Dec 9, so please make sure to act TODAY if you want to donate! For more information on getting involved or contributing a gift or donation, please contact Marsha Hodgson at Marsha.Hodgson@apg.com.
