Dot Foods in Williamsport started making their first round of deliveries to local pantries and one is right here in Hagerstown.
On Wednesday, Dot Foods employees and volunteers dropped off dozens of food at the Washington County Community Action Council in Hagerstown. The organization was chosen as one of six to receive $5,000 worth of goods. The Community Action Council’s services up to 200 families a month. The big donations means a lot more than just personal preferences, and will help address the hunger need in Washington County for up to three months.
“We’re very excited because we’re at the end of our one grants and we need something to carry us over until we can get additional funds and this is exactly what this donation is going to do,” said Donna Rose, Director of Case Management at the Washington County Community Action Council.
Next stop, Dot Foods will be heading to Hancock, Winchester and Martinsburg.
