Dot Charitable Update: February 2021
{{ publishedDate | date }} | {{ publishedDate | time }}

Dot Foods recently helped organize and provide food for a giveaway in Beardstown, Illinois with the Central Illinois Foodbank.

It’s only February, but Dot Foods has already donated over $900,000 worth of excess product this year, bringing our food donations up to over $16 million since the start of the pandemic.
 
As our charitable committees work on plans for 2021, we look forward to a big year of giving for our company. 
 
Food Donations

 

 
  • We continue to donate across the country through our partnership with FEMA. Three truckloads of product were sent to churches in North Carolina to help people in need. We also donated a load of product to the West Virginia Baptist Conference, where cars lined up to receive food.  
 
  • Our partnership with the Central Illinois Foodbank remains strong. Since the start of the year, we’ve held two drive-thru food giveaways in Beardstown, Illinois. We look forward to coordinating more events in the future to serve our local communities. 
 
  • Dot Foods Idaho has also built strong relationships with local food pantries. We continue to regularly donate product to Mountain View Food Pantry, providing over $9,000 worth of food since the beginning of the year. 
 
 
Other Activities

 

  • Dot Foods Georgia made two donations to promote learning. We contributed $1,000 to an annual auction to benefit Robert Toombs Christian Academy. Proceeds fund books for the upcoming school year. We also pitched in $3,500 for the expansion of the Vidalia Toombs County Library. 

 

 

  • The United Cerebral Palsy-Center for Disability Services recently held its first virtual fundraiser. The 2021 UCP-CDS Gridiron Football Pool ran until Super Bowl Sunday to raise money to purchase new technology for the organization’s new Community Day Services Classroom. We purchased two sponsorships to support their event.
