Fairfax, Virginia, November 13, 2020:
For a fifth consecutive year, the Washington Business Journal (WBJ) has recognized Sevatec as one of the D.C. region’s top philanthropic companies. The WBJ Corporate Philanthropy Awards honor the most active and inspirational companies who have made a difference within the community through volunteer support, fundraising events, and charitable giving.
Sevatec, whose name is derived from the Punjabi word “Seva,” meaning “Serving a Greater Purpose,” is dedicated to serving the local communities, especially during troubled times. “Service is at the heart of what we do. ” said Sonny Kakar, Founder and CEO of Sevatec and the Executive Director of SevaTruck Foundation. “Whether it is combatting food insecurity or racial injustice, Sevatec takes a proactive position (both financial and time commitment) in engaging the resources of our company to make a meaningful difference in our communities.”
Sevatec actively promotes its culture of service to employees, customers, and communities. In addition to over a decade of monthly charitable initiatives that support worthy causes, SevaTruck Foundation, a fully-equipped food truck, was launched in 2015 to serve free, hot nutritious meals to children and veterans suffering from food insecurity.
As of 2020, the SevaTruck Foundation, with support from Sevatec, community volunteers, and other corporations in the DC market, has served nearly 150,000 hot, nutritionally-balanced meals to at-risk communities affected by food insecurity. Since COVID-19, SevaTruck increased its service to 300-500 hot meals Monday – Friday, helping support the distribution of nutritious food to those most impacted by the pandemic.
