{{ publishedDate | date }} | {{ publishedDate | time }}

Dot Foods Development Coordinator Paula Burge and Help Desk Analyst Robert Ewing helped build a tiny home for a homeless veteran in Carthage, Illinois.

On July 21-23, Dot Foods held our trade show, Innovations. In addition to providing networking events, showcasing products, and hosting exciting speakers, Innovations gave attendees an opportunity to give back. 

 

Exhibitors could choose to donate their unopened product to Operation Food Search, and attendees could put together care packages at the Lift For Life Academy booth. Learn more about our trade show philanthropy here. Let’s check out our other charitable activities from this month. 
 
  • As part of our Neighbor to Neighbor program, Dot Foods Indiana donated food to the Gateway Hunger Relief Center and the Fayette County Food Council. The food council used our donation to create healthy meal boxes for 200 veterans and 40 school staff members who didn’t receive income over the summer. The food also helped supplement a community distribution to 500 families. 
 
 
  • Our company-wide Alzheimer's Association fundraising campaign continues until the end of the month. Last month, Dot Foods Maryland installed a purple light above the warehouse mezzanine during the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. This light honored those living with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers, for whom every day is the longest day.  
 
  • Employees from Dot Foods Idaho had fun in the sun at the 14th Annual BJ’s Memorial Golf Scramble, benefitting the Burley Firefighters. We served as one of the event’s sponsors, pitching in $360. 
 
  • Dot Foods Idaho also gave $2,000 to Julie's Clothes for Kids, $1,000 to the city of Rupert’s 4th of July Celebration, $600 to an event at the Historic Wilson Theatre, and over $500 worth of food to a fundraiser for the Idaho School for the Deaf and Blind.
