Long-time Milwaukee Company Encourages Businesses to Join in Citywide Food Drive

Oct. 12, 2012

C.H. Coakley announced the dates for its fourth annual Dinner on the Mayflower, a citywide food drive that involves the moving and logistics capabilities of the company, including its Mayflower moving division. Dinner on the Mayflower benefits Hunger Task Force’s Food for Families program.

This is the food drive for companies that have no time to organize food drives. Participating in Dinner on the Mayflower is practically effortless. It allows area businesses to collect food at their location without having to coordinate any sort of pickup or delivery of collection barrel, says Michael Coakley, managing partner of C.H. Coakley. C.H. Coakley challenges Milwaukee-area companies to participate in the effort by placing a food barrel in their establishment and encouraging donations from employees and/or customers.

Participation is easy.

Contact Lazelle Thomas-Conners, event coordinator at 414-372-7000 or lazelle.thomas-conners@chcoakley.com by next Friday, Oct. 19, to let her know you want your business to be involved.

Your food barrel will be delivered Oct. 25.

Encourage employees and clients to bring non-perishable food items and put them in the barrel.

C.H. Coakley will pick up the barrel of donated food in one of its Mayflower trucks Nov. 15.

“The goal of Dinner on the Mayflower is simple: help fewer families in Milwaukee wake up hungry,” says Coakley. “We make this food drive fun and practically effortless for participating companies. Every business ought to be involved with this.”
