DHG donates over 1.5 million pounds of food to fight hunger
Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP has donated 1,610,617 pounds of food to the communities it serves in 11 states across the firm’s footprint, according to a press release from the company.
The donation came from the firm’s Count the Cans food drive, held from June 11 through June 22 as part of their GIVES Initiative. The drive focused on collecting monetary and non-perishable food donations to alleviate the suffering of nearly 49 million people who struggle to get enough to eat.
“Food banks have an increased need for donations in the summer months because children who rely on school meals are out of school and fewer donations are made from the public due to schedules and vacations,” Dixon Hughes Goodman CEO Ken Hughes said in the press release. “We are dedicated to combining our resources to assist our neighbors who are struggling with hunger and meet individual’s immediate needs in the communities we serve.”
“Words are not adequate to thanks Dixon Hughes Goodman for their outstanding support of the Foodbank through their recent food and fund drive,” Foodbanks of Southeastern Virginia CEO Joanne Batson said in the press release. “The tremendous success of the drive is a testament to their commitment to giving back to the community in a creative and engaging way. We are grateful for their partnership as it will help us to feed people who are hungry during the summer months when our donations are at their lowest levels.”
The offices encouraged employee participation through ice cream socials, bake sales, book sales, raffles, bingo and Pictionary themed luncheons and a dunk booth.
