DBL: Doing Better While Doing Good
Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig is proud to have partnered with Legal Services of Northern Virginia to host “virtual clinics” to serve low-income, elderly and disabled veteran clients in the Northern Virginia area.
In light of the effects of COVID-19, on April 17, Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig picked up dozens of individually boxed, gourmet cupcakes from a local small business bakery, Sweetz Bakery, and delivered them to the healthcare workers at Inova Loudoun Hospital. This was a win-win for the community!
