More than 100 Capital One associates supporting small business card volunteered for a community clean-up project in Richmond’s East End in partnership with the Neighborhood Resource Center. That same day in McLean, Capital One partnered with A Wider Circle to clean-up the Highland Addition/ Dwellings community in Southeast Washington, DC.
