Long-time Milwaukee company encourages businesses to join in their city-wide food drive

Sept. 29, 2011

C.H. Coakley has again launched the Dinner on the Mayflower food drive, an effort which will support a city-wide food drive, benefiting Hunger Task Force’s Food for Families program.


Participating in Dinner on the Mayflower will allow area businesses to hold a food drive at their location without having to coordinate the logistics of pickup and delivery of food barrels. C.H. Coakley is again challenging 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.

1. Contact Liz Williams, Event Coordinator at 414-372-7000 or liz.williams@chcoakley.com to let us know you want your business to be involved. The deadline for responding is Wednesday, October 26, 2011.


2. The food barrel will be delivered on Tuesday, November 1, 2011.


3. Encourage employees and clients to bring in a non-perishable food item or two and put them in the barrel.


4. C.H. Coakley will pick up your barrel of donated food in one of our Mayflower trucks on Wednesday, November 16, 2011.


“Families around Milwaukee who find themselves in need should utilize the Hunger Task Force, where they really reach out and assist those who have little or no food to eat,” stated Michael Coakley, managing partner of C.H. Coakley. “With the Dinner on the Mayflower food drive, our goal is that fewer families will wake up hungry. We make this food drive almost effortless and fun for participating companies - every business should be involved with this.”
