Dalton engaged its employees in collecting Food for those in need by organizing a "Corporate Spring Food Drive Challenge‘’. Employees were split into teams and assigned a collection box for a 7-week long drive. Daltonians volunteered to participate and excitedly collected ~2000 lbs of food with the winning team collecting a whopping ~700 Lbs. This team challenge promoted great camaraderie among co-workers and we had fun while giving back to the community we serve. It resulted in a Win-Win situation for everyone.
“It is always exciting to see our enthusiastic people eager to make a difference. This food drive raised awareness of hunger & the demand of food banks in our society, encouraging food donation by our employees. I am extremely thankful to each one at Dalton for making it a huge success and I would like to remind everyone on how the need is even more acute in the summer.” said our CEO, Mr. Peter Pekos.
