Leesburg, VA – April 17, 2020 – Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig, a global law firm with headquarters in Leesburg and Tysons Corner, VA, believes that operating in a responsible and sustainable manner is critical to their firm. Their workplace philanthropy group, DBL Cares, was established to motivate and enable their employees to Do Better While Doing Good.  DBL Cares, along with Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig management, was looking for a way to give back and to help in the community during the COVID-19 Crisis.  Donations were collected remotely from attorneys and staff around the country.

Early Friday morning, staff from 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:  Sweetz Bakery got a large order for dozens and dozens of cupcakes and the critical healthcare workers got a sweet treat to recognize their sacrifice and work.    “We were hearing from our team, even while they were working remotely, that they were looking for a way to help,” stated Aimee McKinney, CMO at Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig.  “People wanted a positive way to give back to the community and recognize the hospital workers who are keeping us all safe.  The response from our staff was immediate and the donations came flooding in from our DBL offices around the country.  It was amazing.”

Adele Tierney RN, BSN, Nurse Manager, greeted the DBL staff at the door to accept the delicious donation, using proper social distancing measures.  Adele noted that “Nothing is the same in the hospital… there are no visitors or family members with the patients… it’s rough to see.” She went on to say,  “The doctors, nurses, and staff really appreciate the community recognizing the job that they are doing during this difficult time.”

And it’s a gift that keeps on giving:  Because of the generosity of their employees, Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig matched the individual employee donations dollar for dollar and is making an additional donation to help a local food bank in the coming weeks.
