Bethesda Cares and Adobe come together to solve homelessness. The team makes 50+ meals for the Homeless and learned about the pro's and con's of giving money to panhandlers, Bethesda Cares' approach to solving homelessness, and much more.

International Women's Day Screening of "She Started it" - In celebration of International Women’s Day, the McLean office featured the film screening of “She Started It”, a feature length documentary film on women tech entrepreneurs, shot on location in Silicon Valley, NYC, Europe, Vietnam, Mississippi & more, that aims to highlight successful role models for young women. It is the first film to show the behind the scenes of running a tech start-up as a young woman.

Guilford Elementary School Book Fair - Adobe employees come together with the Brambleton, VA community and Reston Bible Church to put on a book fair for Guilford Elementary school. 82% of families with children enrolled at Guilford indicate they are economically disadvantaged and often cannot afford a school book fair. By giving back to the community this way, we hope to encourage children to read for a brighter future. Overall, Adobe employees collected over 2000 books and helped put on the book fair.
