Williams Asset Management team Gives back to the food bank throughout 2019
Throughout 2019, the WAM team worked with The Howard County Food Bank to help sort, organize, and stock food products.
Spring 2019: A food drive was held in our office for a few weeks leading up to the volunteer day to allow others to come and drop off needed items such as: cereal, pasta, baby food, diapers, canned beans, canned vegetables, and canned fruits. The team helped to sort and organize over 2,000 lbs. of food products and were able to donate over 200 lbs. of food and diapers provided by clients.
December 2019: Volunteered to assist with sorting and labeling over 2,000 lbs of can and boxed foods. In addition, we also worked with COVERGIRL to provide hygiene and beauty products for the store. After six months of planning, over 1,500 products were donated by COVERGIRL and we were able to create an entire section within the Food Bank just for these products.

Though Howard is one of the most affluent counties in the country, 7.1 percent of county residents experience food insecurity, and an increasing percentage of those residents have children. The Community Action Council of Howard County (CAC) provides the resources for these eligible individuals and families to shop for needed food and personal items. The Howard County Food Bank provides nutritious food to county residents who have incomes that are at or below 150% of the federal poverty level.
The team also had the wonderful privilege of creating pre-bagged Pasta Primavera meals for customers and stock more than three shelves.
All meal items were donated by the local ALDI grocery store and were assembled by our team.
