COLLEGE PARK, MD – As part of an outreach initiative at the 2013 Prince George’s County Business Conference & Expo, the Supplier Development & Diversity Division (SDDD) collected over 150 food items that will be donated to (UCAP), a Prince George’s County non-profit organization. 

“Poverty and hunger never seems to take a vacation, and the holidays are an especially difficult time for many local children and families in Prince George’s County,” said Sharon Jackson, Deputy Executive Director, Prince George’s County Supplier Development & Diversity Division. “We thought that the Business Conference & Expo was a perfect venue to get as many people as we could to help us help those in need.”

In the spirit of the holiday season, SDDD called on members of the business community, resource partners and conference participants to donate nonperishable food items at the Second Annual Prince George’s County Business Conference & Expo.

United Communities Against Poverty, Inc. is dedicated to providing ample services to individuals and families in Prince George’s County whose quality of life has been negatively impacted by poverty, unemployment, homelessness, crime, and inadequate public health services.

The Supplier Development & Diversity Division will be working with the Department of Social Services (DSS) on future community-wide service efforts with the Prince George’s County business community.

"We are proud to be partnering with DSS and our area food banks and volunteer organizations," said Prince George’s County Supplier Development & Diversity Division Executive Director Roland L. Jones. "We hope the business community will help us in these future community service opportunities!"
