Our Mission

Washington DC is not only the community we serve, it’s also where we live and raise our families. It’s pretty awesome to work in the community that we live in. That’s why it’s so important for us to give back and make this community even more beautiful. We feel strongly that the best way we can impact the community is by investing in the young people that live here.

We participate in a wide range of activities from volunteering our time helping families in need to offering scholarships to graduating high school students.

Events in the Community

The Children’s Winter Coat Drive is sponsored by the Children’s Charity Foundation and BB&T. It aims to distribute winter coats to children by donations from 30 local charities and organizations in the D.C. area.

Biotech is honored to have been chosen as the charity to purchase coats for children in the downtown Silver Spring, MD area. We are privileged to play a part in helping at risk and disadvantaged youth in DC, Maryland and Virginia.

The SHOL Annual Scholarship Program was launched by Stanley House of LOVE. It offers development opportunities for applicants through a distinguished panel of executives and prominent individuals from academia.

As a developing company with mainly young and enthusiastic employees, Biotech is more than willing to resource the success of a rising high school senior and to help them realize their dreams.
