“The employees from Dot Foods were absolutely invaluable to our Christmas basket program this year, donating so much of their time and efforts,” said Carolyn Chaney, case worker with TRRC-Mt.Sterling. “With the help from Dot and our other volunteers, we’ve had an incredibly successful program and have been fortunate to help so many.”

A total of 477 baskets were assembled, consisting of a large variety of dry goods, personal care items, fresh fruit and vegetables, bread, milk, juice, cheese, butter and a large variety of meat and poultry items, including fresh ground deer meat. The baskets were delivered and distributed to individuals and families in need this holiday season.
