ALEXANDRIA, Va.—The Wills Group gave back to its community by volunteering at the Southern Maryland Food Bank. Ten dedicated Wills Group team members assembled 150 boxes of fresh produce and 150 bags of frozen meat. Three-quarters of the food went to churches and food banks, while the remainder was distributed through the Southern Maryland Food Bank.

The popular paid-time-off-to-volunteer policy at the Wills Group enables its team members to contribute to the communities it serves by working to fight food insecurity and to reimagine outdoor spaces.

“We’ve done so many projects out in the community, from packing food for the food bank to helping others fix up their homes. It keeps me energized, and I’m excited to come to work every day,” said Brooke Rieman, senior manager of business operations and risk management at the Wills Group. “Everybody wants to make a difference in the community. And Wills Group gives us all the tools to do that.”

Wills Group partners with regional and local food banks and pantries like Southern Maryland Food Bank to tackle acute needs around food insecurity while also supporting long-term solutions to persistent food supply and distribution challenges.

Wills Group is committed to building a better future for its neighbors and was recognized for its 2023 community engagement work by the Washington Business Journal, earning the Corporate Philanthropy in the Midsize Companies by Giving in Greater D.C. category for the third year in a row. The company has also been certified by Great Place to Work as one of the nation’s top employers for two years in a row.
