The Hostetter Strent LLC Team


Business Leaders Fighting Hunger is a coalition of Montgomery County employers committed to doing their part to reduce hunger in our midst. The coalition has launched an emergency campaign to raise funds for hunger relief for Montgomery County citizens facing acute need due to the Coronavirus crisis. The Business Leaders’ fund is a component fund of the Greater Washington Community Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit.  Hostetter Strent LLC has made a donation to Business Leaders Fighting Hunger at the Super Force donation level.  Law firms were deemed “essential businesses” for a reason. With that designation comes responsibility. We, as lawyers, recognize our collective responsibility to help lead and serve those within our community who need help most in this time. We are proud to join in this communal support effort.
