On April 2, 2012, Share Our Strength, a non-profit headquartered in Washington, DC held Taste of the Nation, a prestigious culinary event, at the National Building Museum from 6pm to 10pm. Share Our Strength’s mission is to end childhood hunger in America by 2015, so this event helped raise the critical funds needed by bringing hundreds of highly esteemed chefs and mixologists together to create unique cuisines and cocktails for nearly 1,000 guests to enjoy.
With the number of attendees at Taste of the Nation, obviously volunteers were needed. What they also needed was a type of uniform that would help volunteers stand out from the crowd. Rather than outfitting volunteers in baggy t-shirts, Share Our Strength chose aprons to fit the theme but found that the aprons were out of their budget. Summit Group came to the rescue and donated aprons for all of the volunteers to wear not only for this year’s Taste of the Nation, but to be used for all future Taste of the Nation events held in DC. Our seemingly small donation helped them save money for area food banks and the like.
It’s easy to lose sight of what really matters when we are all consumed with work and events in our personal lives. Sometimes though, we need to step back and see who around us needs help and lend a hand. A donation of promotional goods could really make a huge difference even if it appears inconsequential at first!
