Giving Tuesday is right around the corner, and one Reston-based company got a head start.
The food will go to the Reston Community Center’s Thanksgiving Food Drive to benefit Cornerstones, a local nonprofit organization. The items gathered by the employees, known as “Goalies,” include cans of yams, potatoes and Campbell soup.
Founded in 2002, The Goal is headquartered in Reston at 11921 Freedom Drive, Suite 920. The company’s services include software development, cybersecurity and data solutions.
The donation is meant to help people living in poverty, the company tweeted said.
Our Goalies collected over 500 food items in our annual food drive benefiting the Reston Community Center! Our donation is helping those living in poverty in Northern VA! #proudtobetg #tg https://t.co/AMKelOf0kR
