Aronson’s Charities of the Month for April 2017 are A Wider Circle and Shepherd’s Table.
A Wider Circle aims to end poverty for one individual and one family after another. The organization works in partnership with those they serve and with those seeking to help to ensure that every child and adult has the chance to succeed and the opportunity to live well. A Wider Circle’s efforts focus on the provision of basic need items, education, and long-term support. These three components work in concert to create lasting change in the lives of those they serve. A Wider Circle says no to nobody!
Shepherd’s Table is a nonprofit organization in downtown Silver Spring that aims to provide help to people who are homeless or in need by providing basic services, including meals, social services, medical support, clothing, and other assistance in an effective and compassionate manner. Since 1983, Shepherd’s Table has been a necessary and effective resource welcoming and serving those in need within the community.

About Denim Fridays: Aronson employees may wear denim in the office on Fridays by providing a small contribution towards our Charity of the Month. The Aronson Foundation matches (up to $1,000) the funds collected for Denim Fridays each month to contribute towards the month’s designated charity. The monthly recipients are nominated by employees who have personal involvement with a charitable organization.
