For Grayham Thomson, Dot Foods Ingersoll general manager, the growth of Dot Foods Canada gives us exciting opportunities to have a “positive impact within our communities.” We didn’t waste any time impacting our newest communities around Ingersoll, Ontario.
At the grand opening of our Ingersoll distribution center, we presented a $50,000 check to split between six local nonprofits:
Through our philanthropy, we’ve made a difference in areas across our U.S. locations. As we increase our footprint in Canada, we look forward to expanding our philanthropy and developing great relationships with Canadian nonprofits.
Back in the States, our charitable committees kept busy this month.
Neighbor to Neighbor, our annual companywide food distribution program, kicked off this month. Dot Foods Vidalia and Dot Foods Liverpool employees volunteered their time to unload donated product to local pantries.
Dot Foods Modesto drummed up $2,500 for the Pitman Pride High School band.
Our Liverpool distribution center also showed their support for school music programs, donating $1,500 and $500 worth of product to the Jordan-Elbridge High School marching band.
The Dot Foods Williamsport Sanitation department had the wonderful idea to offer frozen warehouse gear they no longer needed to The Hope Center at Hagerstown Rescue Mission. According to the organization, the warm clothing we donated will save the lives of unhoused people this winter. For additional support, we also gifted the center with $2,000.
