For 25 years, we at Evans have worked with organizations that contribute to the greater good in our local community. The mission of the Northern Virginia Family Services (NVFS) is, “To empower individuals and families to improve their quality of life, and to promote community cooperation and support in responding to family needs.” They achieve this end by providing essential resources that support financial, emotional, and physical well-being to individuals and families in Northern Virginia. Every year, NVFS provides 35,000 individuals the tools to achieve self-sufficiency.
Since 2015, Evans has partnered with NVFS through sponsorships and donations to its school supply collection program. Additionally, we are a proud four-time recipient of the NVFS Company as Responsive Employer (CARE) award. For over 25 years, the CARE Awards have recognized upstanding companies making Northern Virginia a better place for everyone to live, work, and play.
“The CARE Awards highlight companies that understand and exemplify the shared significance of work and family as building blocks to healthy communities. This aligns with Evans’ vision to build healthy organizations through innovation. We recognize that healthy organizations start with healthy individuals, which in turn are the building blocks to strong communities. We are enthusiastic proponents of the NVFS mission and look forward to continuing our partnership for years to come,” said Ashley Tolub, senior manager at Evans Incorporated and member of the CARE nomination committee.
The CARE Awards select companies that promote a culture of service and positive employee engagement strategies. Awardees are commended for their sustained corporate social responsibility efforts and employee volunteer engagement. Winners are chosen based on their initiatives including innovative and sustained corporate social responsibility, to create best places to work in the area.
