RESTON, Va., Jan. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- GAP Solutions announces donations totaling $27,500 to six different charities as part of its first internal Super Service Challenge. Six teams from GAP Solutions performed over 100 hours of community service for nonprofits including The Beacon, a homeless shelter in Houston, TX, Keep Indianapolis Beautiful (KIB), an organization focused on community beautification, the San Miguel School of Washington, DC, Cornerstones, Inc., an organization focused on helping the needy of Fairfax County, VA, Fairfax ReLeaf, an organization focused on community beautification in Northern Virginia, and the Chron's and Colitis Foundation of America. All teams captured videos of their acts of service and explained how they served and the impact the service had on their team.
