DMC’s Thanksgiving Food Drive
Thanksgiving is a time of year that revolves around food. Everyone looks forward to feasting on turkey, mashed potatoes and other sides, and yummy desserts. These are the usual trimmings of the Thanksgiving holiday, but this year, we wanted to pay special attention to the true meaning of Thanksgiving, which is gratitude.
That’s why this Thanksgiving, DMC held a food drive for our Chicago neighbors who are in need this holiday season. If you think about it, there is no better way to be thankful for what we have been given than by giving back.
We put out a call for donations in our Chicago office, and DMC employees answered generously. After two weeks, we had a full box of nonperishable food along with over $200 in monetary donations! We aim to do even better next year, as we plan to continue the tradition of giving back for Thanksgiving in years to come
Food donations were given to Catholic Charities, an organization that does amazing work for the residents of the Chicago area and beyond. They annually assist over 1 million people in Cook and Lake counties without regard to religious, ethnic, or economic background. DMC was proud to assist with their effort to feed the hungry in the Chicago area.
Icing on the Cake
We have a lot to be thankful for here at DMC: interesting work, great friends and co-workers, a new kegerator for our kitchen, etc. On top of that, each of us has many things to be thankful for in our lives outside of work. We hope that by helping others, we can not only develop great programmers here at DMC, but also great people.
