Thanksgiving Food Drive Success

The employees of John Henry Foster (Eagan, Minneosta) held their Second Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. This year there were two teams with employees being split equally between the teams. In total, JHF donated 708 pounds of food to The Open Door. Our winning team was team #1 with 326 items and a cash donation. Team #2 came in second with 258 items. John Henry Foster also donated $1,000 to Fruit of the Vine this Holiday Season.

Thank you to all employees who participated.

Most of the individuals using food shelves in Dakota County are working poor balancing multiple jobs and children and trying to figure out what’s more important: their house payment or putting food on the table.

John Henry Foster employees look forward to the next opportunity to give back to the community.
