Want to hold a successful food drive?  Turn it into a competition and you’ve got everyone’s attention!  Our office held a food drive “battle” for the Salvation Army and collected lots of canned goods.  The firm was split into two teams, Team Fruit & Team Veggies.  And the winner is…TEAM VEGGIES!   395 cans of veggies were collected, and 324 cans of fruit were collected.  In addition, a cash donation was made to the food pantry.  In the end, teamwork prevailed!   Great job everyone!   Thank you to Danielle L. McMahon and Jennifer A. Dorgan for organizing this amazing event for a great cause.

The food pantry at the Salvation Army is extremely low on supplies, and even had to close its doors at one point last week due to not having enough food available. This is something that over 1,000 families per month rely on. They are looking for some additional support to keep the pantry full for these families.   Here’s how you can give to the Salvation Army:  Ways to Give – Salvation Army Syracuse Area Services
