At Meridian, it is important to us to positively contribute to our community. In 2013, we revamped our efforts to give back to the community by creating an Outreach Committee, dedicated to implementing quarterly efforts to support two metro area non-profit organizations. Meridian's President, Matt Williams, and Senior Director of Human Resources, Beth Hayes, offer executive oversight for the committee. In January, the committee selected Cornerstones and Children's Miracle Network as the foci of our 2014 Meridian outreach initiatives.
Participation in the Meridian Outreach Committee and all outreach events and initiatives is voluntary. All Meridian employees, their friends and their families are welcome and encouraged to participate in Outreach Committee events and initiatives!

Cornerstones is a nonprofit organization that promotes self-sufficiency by providing support and advocacy for those in need of food, shelter, affordable housing, quality childcare, and other human services. The organization remains firmly rooted in the Reston community and embraces founder Robert E.
