On a mid-May weekend, just before summer unfurls itself on Memorial Day, charity is heading home for NJVC.

NJVC is proud to be the military appreciation sponsor at Chantilly Day 2014, a civic celebration for the Fairfax County corridor that the Smithsonian's Air & Space Museum's Udvar-Hazy Center as well our corporate offices call home. In addition, NJVC is also sponsoring a pair of STEM grants for area high schools, to further their initiatives in Science, Technology and Math, to be awarded at the event.

For NJVC, it marks an opportunity to give back to the two areas which mark the intertwined strands of our corporate DNA: support of the nation's armed services and their families, and innovation in IT, all the while giving back to the community many of our staff call home.

As a longtime partner to the Department of Defense, who is honored to have many veterans among our leadership, support for the military, from charitable races to the USO's Elf project at Christmas to ayearly golf tournament, is imprinted in our corporate identity from our founding more than a dozen years ago. Support for education which benefits advances in IT, meanwhile, helps fuel tomorrow's solutions to deliver a superior IT enterprise and automation technology for federal and commercial customers.

Chantilly Day marks a unique opportunity to demonstrate NJVC'c commitment to both.

"Innovative IT and unwavering support for our military are the keystones of our corporate identity," said NJVC event lead Dara Dirth. "Supporting both so close to home is an opportunity we were glad to have."

This will be the event's fourth year, but the first year NJVC has served as a sponsor of its new hometown's event. As NJVC outgrew its previous headquarters elsewhere in Fairfax County, VA, the company relocated corporate staff in 2013, selecting a campus in Chantilly. Chantilly, once sprawling farmland until the construction of nearby Dulles Airport in 1962, and the growth of the Washington metro area, is now a boom town of high-tech companies supporting federal and commercial customers around the globe.

Vice President, Human Resources, John Herweh will represent NJVC at the festival, for anyone wanting to learn more about the company or find out why your next career stop should be with NJVC.

Attractions will include a petting zoo, a trackless train and an exhibition of Chantilly area restaurants

But for NJVC, the biggest attraction on a late spring weekend is coming home and giving back.
