Staff Have Active Fall at Harford Events

Harford’s Active Fall Brings Volunteers!

Freedom staff have had an active fall, participating in three volunteer events since the end of October. Harford’s active community life means there’s always something to take part in, and Freedom staff are there.

Staffers decorated the Freedom van for Mountain Christian’s Trunk or Treat event on Saturday October 28. Employees had a blast handing out candy to the many families coming through for the fun annual event.

The weekend of November 18 employees representing accounting, marketing and senior staff donated time for the United Way food giveaway at Bel Air United Methodist Church. Along with recruited family members, Freedom staff bagged vegetables by the five-pound sack, divvied up bread, and handed out boxes of canned goods to local folks gearing up for Thanksgiving. Almost 500 people came through the doors of Bel Air’s United Methodist Church, collecting goods for their holiday meal.
