WASHINGTON, DC – Telophase team members know how the smallest act of kindness can go a long way. As far back as 2008, Telophase has maintained a relationship with The Community for Creative Non-Violence (CCNV), a shelter in downtown Washington, DC that hosts 1,350 beds for individuals in need of food, lodging, and clothing.
On Jan. 20, Telophase employees volunteered their time to serve hot meals and distribute clothing to hundreds of CCNV residents. Every year, Telophase has committed time and resources to an annual day of service at CCNV, making it a priority to contribute to the work of this essential nonprofit.
This year, more than 25 Telophase employees, family, and friends came together to ensure a successful event. At least 15 bags full of clothing were donated to those in need, an especially important contribution during the cold winter months.
Telophase CEO Jamil Husain says he is always impressed by the giving spirit of Telophase team members. “Our culture of generosity at Telophase stems from the people who work here,” Husain adds. “It’s an honor to work side by side with people who actively give their time and resources to help others.”
Telophase would like to thank nine local restaurants that generously donated food for shelter residents, including American Tandoor in Tysons Corner; Dogfish Head Alehouse and Peking Gourmet Inn in Falls Church; Delhi Club, Gharer Khabar, and House of Mandi in Arlington; Mission BBQ in Greenbelt; and Spice Grill in Germantown, as well as HoneyBaked Ham.
