In the Community
Founded by Roxanne H. Dobrynski, Federal Schedules, Inc. (FEDSched) was built upon the belief that success comes with a duty to give back to the community. Since our founding in 1986, the people of Federal Schedules have been committed to making a difference in the communities where we live and work. Through corporate donations and programs that enable our employees to volunteer, Federal Schedules supports nonprofit organizations, programs, and activities which aim to improve the community and the quality of life of community members.
“We have built a company with people who care enough to get involved and who are, themselves, good citizens. When you build a company around good people, it is much easier to do good things.”
— Roxanne H. Dobrynski
Community involvement at Federal Schedules goes beyond financial commitment. Year after year, Federal Schedules’ employees volunteer considerable time, talents, and resources to charitable organizations. As a company we commit corporate support by means of a formal volunteer policy. Each employee at Federal Schedules receives four hours a month of paid time-off to volunteer at the organization of their choice. This program has successfully enabled employees to dedicate their time to causes and charities that are important to them, greatly improving their level of community involvement.
Avon Walk for Breast Cancer
The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer is one of the largest fundraising programs in the United States. This three day, 26.2 mile walk is held in cities nationwide and raises millions for breast cancer awareness, education, research, and medical support. Each year, on the eve of the Washington, D.C. Avon Walk, FEDSched shuts its doors so employees can head into the city as a team to help set up for this massive event. Donning blue volunteer shirts, FEDSched employees help assemble the check-in area and check-in many of the thousands of walkers and crew members that take part in the event.
Susan G. Komen Global Race for the Cure
The Susan G. Komen Global Race for the Cure is a 5K run/fitness walk that is held in Washington, D.C. each year to raise funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer. Federal Schedules has created a tradition of assembling a team every year to participate in this event. FEDSched employees, family, and friends look forward each year to joining over 45,000 other participants in showing support for breast cancer awareness and the importance of early detection.
Lee National Denim Day
Each year, Federal Schedules joins thousands of companies nationwide to participate in Lee National Denim Day. On Denim Day, each employee comes to work wearing jeans in support of the fight against breast cancer. In turn, FEDSched makes a financial contribution on behalf of each employee to the Lee National Denim Day program.
D.C. Central Kitchen
The D.C. Central Kitchen (DCCK) is a community kitchen that, in addition to serving 4,500 meals a day, employs a number of outreach programs to assist people in need in the Washington, D.C. metro area. In 2004 Founder, Roxanne Dobrynski—upon seeing a news story that the DCCK was experiencing a food shortage that would affect their ability to provide Thanksgiving Day meals—began FEDSched’s annual tradition of donating turkeys, spices, and other food items needed to prepare meals.
