Sevatec Employees Making a Lasting Impact in the Nation’s Capital
Sevatec recently partnered with SevaTruck to support their mission to combat hunger in the nation’s capital. SevaTruck is a food truck equipped with a commercial kitchen and has the distinction of being able to go where there is a need for warm meals. SevaTruck is partnered with several non-profit organizations nationwide serving free meals through various service events once a week with plans to increase service to 5 days a week. With the help of volunteers from Sevatec, SevaTruck has made an immediate impact to youth, children, deprived senior citizens, and veterans who may not otherwise have access to a hot, nutritious meal.
For the past three months, Sevatec employees have routinely devoted their time and expertise to support local underprivileged youth and veterans who are struggling with food security. Some highlights of the service events Sevatec employees have recently supported include:
- SevaTruck kicked off the beginning of the school year with a 300 meal delivery at JoAnn Leleck Elementary School at Broad Acres. Earlier in the year Sevatruck Foundation donated, assembled, and delivered 900 backpacks with supplies to the school.
- SevaTruck served over 200 meals to the Latin American Youth Center (LAYC) and the US Vets. With the help of volunteers from Sevatec, we prepared healthy, delicious meals; delivered food in two shifts, serving lunch at the LAYC first and then dinner at the US Vets. The LAYC provides a host of services and support to over 4000 underprivileged youth annually, and the US Vets operates an 85 bed facility for homeless veterans.
- SevaTruck Foundation and several Sevatec volunteers were generous and participated in the U.S. Vets 4th of July Celebration as the “dessert truck” serving a variety of ice-cream and handmade cookies.
- Sevatec employees donated over 500 bottles of Gatorade at The Dash for Duchenne Event, a local charity focused on cures for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
