Making Spirits Bright: John W. Danforth Company Makes Special Deliveries During Holidays

Neighbors in Need

Earlier this holiday season, Danforth employees in Albany and Rochester, New York also reached out to help neighbors in need.

In Albany, Danforth organized a Thanksgiving food drive in conjunction with CAPTAIN Community Human Services, a volunteer-driven non-profit organization in Saratoga County. The Danforth team collected food and assembled 25 food baskets for several local families. The baskets included everything needed for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, including a gift card for a turkey. Danforth has been partnering with CAPTAIN for the past four years, providing Thanksgiving baskets for more than 80 local families in need.

In Rochester, Danforth again stepped forward to support local Veterans and their families living in low-income housing at the Canandaigua VA Medical Center campus. Danforth has been conducting an annual Veterans Holiday Food Drive at its Rochester office for the past six years. The drive supports residents living in Building 17 on the Canandaigua VA campus, which provides housing for Veterans who are disabled and/or low-income. Each of the building’s 17 apartments received a basket with all the fixings for a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Families with children also received a Thanksgiving turkey.

 “We could not be prouder of the way our workers always embrace the opportunity to help make the holidays a little brighter for others in our communities,” Beck said.
