Our Community

Central to WBB’s culture is a strong sense of our duty to the communities that support and sustain our business. In turn, we pursue every opportunity to reach out and give back to these communities. We also encourage our employees to be active in community service. WBB has instilled our philosophy for social responsibility throughout our workforce – at corporate headquarters, our eight office locations, and our clients’ sites. We also work with corporate partners, vendors, and our peers to develop and enact related initiatives and build relationships.

At WBB, we feel a special commitment to those who have sacrificed their health and well-being in service to the nation over the last decade of warfare. The nature of the conflict, coupled with modern combat lifesaving, has resulted in unprecedented numbers of young people returning home with serious injuries to both mind and body. Over 42,000 Wounded Warriors have incurred service-connected injuries since September 11, 2001. WBB actively supports organizations and initiatives dedicated to improving wellness and quality of life for these heroes and their families. We believe that by providing assistance to these heroes and their families, we will raise awareness of the value of service and sacrifice to our national well-being. We also hope to strengthen bonds and relieve stress in military families and provide programs and services to meet the needs of these valiant men and women.

Our Initiatives

 

Each year, WBB personnel gather to provide bicycles, helmets, hundreds of toys, as well as monetary donations for several campaigns surrounding veterans and their children, including Toys for Tots.

WBB also supports the Three Oaks Center through the establishment of the Southern Maryland Veterans Initiative and a Veterans Stand- Down Day. These efforts focus on the needs of service veterans who are facing very difficult challenges – including homelessness complicated by unemployment, healthcare issues, and drug and alcohol abuse.

WBB continues to be an active sponsor of Northwest Federal Credit Union, through the Mentorship Program and the Neon Night Glow Run. Through the mentorship program, WBB employees volunteer biweekly and mentor third grade students at Dranesville Elementary school. The mission of this program is to shape these young indiviuals into burgeoning leaders and heroes.

Volunteerism is and continues to be a staple of our corporate culture. In addition to our annual Community Service month, WBB volunteers with the Northern Virginia Family Service and CornerStones through campground clean ups and soup kitchen catering for the residents at the local community shelters. NVFS and CornerStones are local non-profits that serve the homeless community and provide career services, mentoring, meals, shelter, financial planning, and more.

Starting in 2017, WBB is taking part in Wreaths Across America (WAA). WAA is a national non-profit organization founded in 2007 to remember and honor veterans by placing wreaths with red bows on the headstones at veteran cemeteries in all 50 states and beyond.

Our personnel give much of their time to support the veteran community. Many do pro-bono work for one of our Warrior Gathering partners, Warrior Canine Connection. This effort includes consulting services, writing business plans, as well as designing corporate materials for the non-profit organization. Our employees also support Here for the Girls, a non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of young women affected by breast cancer. Here for the Girls creates and serves an extended family of young survivors who support one another through diagnosis, treatment, and beyond. This year, in 2017, WBB was Here for the Girls, and particpated in the virtual Run for the Hills 5K.

WBB's Annual Warrior Gathering

The largest of our corporate-wide efforts is WBB’s annual Warrior Gathering, during which we partner with local veteran-owed nonprofit organizations to help injured service members and their families strengthen family bonds and relieve stresses. Our Warrior Gathering provides a much-needed respite through a relaxing environment for quality family time, informal peer group support, group activities, and a venue for spouses and family members to connect and learn from one another. Since the program initiation in 2012, WBB has raised more than $150,000, as well as material donations supporting these efforts.
