Lauren Lehman’s Food Drive for The Dorothy Day Center

Comments Off on Lauren Lehman’s Food Drive for The Dorothy Day Center News

ALL teams have hit it out of the park!!  They were tasked with finding creative “16th Birthday” themed ways to solicite both monetary donations and nonperishables.  They had done spectacular, to say the least, as seen by Team Captains – Pictured left to right: James Marhefka, Senior Project Geologist, Joseph Shields, Survey Technician III, Chantal Sisko, Environmental Scientist & GIS Technician, Lauren Lehman, Joe Lehman, President’s daughter, and Sarah Lockard, Designer I.

The lunchroom was filled to the brim with donated items.  In addition, there had been a total of $635.00 in monetary donations!!!  Lauren Lehman visited the office on Monday, January 29th to perform the judging of the creative food boxes that were made by each team captain, based on the theme but inspire office staff to contribute!  What a fun, incredibly awesome, hilariously competitive food drive! With a total of $635.00 in monetary donations and 721 nonperishable items, this competition was nothing short of a HUGE success! Every team was a winner!!!  One young lady, and a firm of wonderful employees that was inspired by this young lady, helped The Dorothy Day Center!!!!  The most thanks goes out to Lauren who has collected food every year since her fourth birthday.  She just turned 16 and has been collecting for 12+ straight years!  Thank you, Lauren, for inspiring us all!
