Bizzell Participates in the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Holiday Assistance Program

On November 30, staff from The Bizzell Group’s (Bizzell) Lanham office made a special holiday delivery to the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree warehouse in Hyattsville, Maryland.  The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program is a personalized holiday assistance program for children whose families are struggling financially.

With the help of numerous generous sponsors, the Salvation Army provides new toys and clothing to children throughout the national capital area. This year, Bizzell employees teamed up to provide clothing and toys for 25 deserving children in Washington, D.C. and Prince George’s County.

Bizzell is grateful for this opportunity to partner with the Salvation Army and to support local families. At Bizzell, we believe in making a difference in the lives of others—not just through our work, but also through charitable service to our communities.

Bizzell Partners with NCMA to Support Quest Communities Veterans Project

On April 21st, at the Crystal Lake Golf and Country Club, The Bizzell Group (Bizzell) placed 1st at the 3rd Annual National Contract Management Association (NCMA) Atlanta Golf Invitational. The golf tournament is the largest NCMA event hosted in Atlanta.

Bizzell’s Atlanta based Senior Associate, Lisa Black, serves as the Community Outreach Chair of the NCMA, Atlanta Region. As a growing business committed to deepening our impact, our community outreach work with NCMA aims to support and assist underserved communities in the Atlanta Metropolitan area.

Bizzell partnered with NCMA on this event by sponsoring one hole and providing volunteer support for the event. A portion of this year’s event proceeds will be donated to Quest Communities, Quest Vets Project — which has provided housing assistance to more than 4,000 displaced and or homeless veterans.

Bizzell is excited to have placed 1st in the tournament; but most thrilled to have a sustained partnership with NCMA to support military veterans and other underserved communities in the Atlanta metro. In the coming months, The Bizzell Group will again partner with NCMA to support the Mary Hall Freedom House – a residential treatment center for substance abuse which serves women and children.

Bizzell Provides Sponsorship Support for Annual Fortune Foundation Scholarship Fundraiser

The Fortune Foundation is hosting its first annual Fortune Foundation Scholarship Fundraiser on Saturday, April 19, 2014 at The Society Lounge in Silver Spring, MD from 3 pm – 7 pm.   The event boasts a guest list of more than 250 attendees who will experience an afternoon of food, live music, guest speakers, raffles and much more.  The Bizzell Group (Bizzell) is one of the many sponsors for this charitable event.

The Fortune Foundation – established in 2013 – is a nonprofit organization with a mission to enrich the lives of minority youth by offering educational scholarships, leadership development, mentoring and tutoring, and college preparation to high school students living in South Florida and the Metropolitan D.C. areas.  The goal is to equip the participating youth in these areas with the resources to become next-generation leaders and positively impact their surrounding communities and society as a whole.

The event is being held to support the Fortune Leadership and Academic Excellence Scholarship – awarded each year to three graduating minority high school seniors who excel academically and exemplify outstanding leadership.  Donations and contributions to the organization will also allow the organization to offer minority students a range of enrichment opportunities, such as college fairs and field trips.

The Fortune Foundation focuses primarily on the areas of academic excellence, leadership, mentorship and college readiness.  “Bizzell believes in giving back to our community, particularly our youth, who will be tomorrow’s leaders,” Bizzell CEO, Dr. Anton Bizzell, said in a statement.  “When presented with this opportunity, we jumped at the chance to offer support as a sponsor.”
