Washington, DC-based KSG Strategic Consulting, is partnering with local company Like Neighbors for its 2nd Annual 5,000 Meals Program. The initiative is designed to donate 5,000 meals to military service members and their families, who are experiencing life’s challenges, including injury, illness, and financial difficulties.

“We are committed to supporting this country’s service members, who dedicate their time and often sacrifice their own safety to protect us,” said Kesi Stribling, CEO and Chief Strategist of KSG Strategic Consulting and Publisher of popular blog, Ask The Strategist. The company has delivered several free career management and training programs for Veterans and military spouses. This year, according to Stribling, the business is also joining Gaithersburg, MD-based Like Neighbors as a Corporate Supporter to raise awareness about the 5,000 Meals Program.

For the second year, Like Neighbors will send the donated meals to Washington, DC-area Fisher House comfort homes, where veterans’ families stay free of charge while a loved one receives medical treatment at a military or VA hospital. Meals will also be donated to the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), which provides compassionate care and programming to more than 85,000 people grieving the loss of a military loved one. “Gifting a delicious, prepared meal to a military family is a wonderful, personal way to recognize their sacrifices and ongoing challenges,” said Judy O’Connor, Founder and CEO of Like Neighbors.

Stribling said that the company will match meal contributions made from Sunday, May 19th through Friday, May 24th when selecting KSG Strategic Consulting (under how you heard about the program). Meal donations, starting at just $15, can be made by visiting www.likeneighbors.com.
