MT. STERLING, Ill. – Employees of the Dot Foods’ HR department recently donated presents to a local Mt. Sterling family to help them celebrate the upcoming holidays. More than a dozen presents were collected and given to the family, who has three children under the age of 11. Dot Foods coordinated with the local chapter of the National TTT Society through their annual Adopt-a-Family program. In addition, the Tracy Family Foundation made a donation to the local chapter earlier this year to assist with other families in the program.
