The Dwyer Group Donates 27,717 Pounds of Food for Community Food Drive

January 19, 2009 // Franchising.com // Waco, Texas -– The Dwyer Group was recently honored for donating more food than any other company with 100 or more employees to the local Food for Families food drive. The company also set a new internal record, donating 27,717 pounds of food to the Waco-based Caritas agency to feed needy families of Central Texas.

"Once again our associates have let their actions speak for themselves at this important time of the year," said Debbie Wright-Hood, chief administrative officer for The Dwyer Group. "Giving back to our community has always played an important role for The Dwyer Group, and we never want to see someone go hungry."

The Dwyer Group donates money to Caritas, a locally owned and operated non-profit agency, to purchase food for the needy in the area. Approximately $0.40 purchases one pound of food and Caritas is able to purchase exactly what they need as they need it. The Dwyer Group matches associates' contributions and, year after year, the associates come through for the community.

The Dwyer Group has participated in the Food for Families drive for nine years, consistently beating each year's record.
