Community Outreach

Meridian's Community Service & Corporate Stewardship Initiatives

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!

Our Community Outreach Partners Include:

ALIVE! logo ALIVE! ( ALexandrians In Volved Ecumenically) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization of volunteers from over 40 religious congregations and the community working together to help those in need in Alexandria, Virginia. ALIVE! is the largest private safety net for the needy in the city of Alexandria, addressing short-term to long-term needs for those less fortunate in the community. Learn more >>


Cornerstones logoCornerstones 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.

Project French Fry: Meridian Employees Raise Funds for Local Animal Shelter
