It’s a priority for Daymark and its employees to give back to the local community. The food pantry in Burlington, Massachusetts, espouses “People Helping People,” and that’s exactly what Daymark employees did last month to assist in making sure the families in Burlington have enough food and essential supplies as winter arrives. The employee-driven Daymark food drive resulted in multiple carloads of food being donated to those with the greatest needs.
The pantry serves between 150 and 200 Burlington families per month, or around 550 people. 40 percent are children, and 15 percent are seniors. The pantry has more than 200 volunteers and operates as a drive-thru, where food is largely custom-packed while families wait in their cars. Each family is asked a list of questions about their food preferences for the week. This list guides the volunteers as they custom pack the food from what is available at any given time and within family size allocations.Read More
