Our Burlington Service Center recently held a cookout to provide lunches to those who needed it most in the area. The team had fun being able to share this time with each other and the community. They each took turns dressed up as an inflatable, which got several laughs from everyone.
The team decided to take on this initiative to bring the community together in a new and fun way. They ended up serving about 100 hotdogs and 50 burgers and provided warm lunches to a homeless veteran.
We’re so thankful for our teammates who take the time to put the local community first, whether customers or not. Our Burlington team can’t wait until the next time they can give back to the surrounding community.
Our Sawyer Good Deed Team has found a new way to make a difference in its community. Recently, they partnered with Alamance County Meals on Wheels. The team now has a route once a month where they are able to go out and deliver meals to homebound senior citizens.
The Alamance County Meals on Wheels was formed in 1973. Over the years, they have been offering hot home-delivered meals, frozen home-delivered meals, and winter weather emergency meals. They started delivering only one route, serving a few people, and now they serve over 300 people each day on 24 different hot and frozen meal routes.
Our teammates, Lucas C. and Elizabeth W., were both very grateful for the opportunity to give back this month and look forward to continuing this partnership. Alamance County Meals on Wheels is always looking for volunteers to help! If you would like to get involved, please visit http://www.alamancemow.org/ to see how you can help.
