May Mask Give Away and Food Drive In Arlington Heights
In May of 2020 Dahme hosted a mask give away and food drive at the Arlington Heights location. All donations were given to the St. Edna food pantry. The event proved to be a great success, here is a quote from St. Edna’s staff:
“Three crates of food and paper products were dropped in front of the Parish Center doors with a forklift. The ongoing generous donations left in the bins outside the Parish Center and this recent food drive continues to support the clients that come to St. Edna each Saturday morning and helps our sharing parish, St. James, on the third Sundays of each month” –St. Edna Food Pantry
Owner Paul Neudauer was thrilled by the turnout from the Arlington Heights community but also by the way his staff stepped-up. That is why Paul nominated his staff for the Arlington Heights Patch Heroes award. In the submission you can feel how proud Paul was from this quote:
“My employees went beyond the call this summer to put on two mask giveaways/food drives this summer, one in Arlington Heights and one in Countryside. Besides giving up two Saturdays, they donated plenty of after hours time getting things ready for the event” –Paul Neubauer
The event was such a great success that later in the year Dahme hosted another mask giveaway and food drive at the Countryside location. This time donations were given to the local food pantry in Brookfield, IL. Again, the Dahme staff volunteered their time to put together a great event in helping out the local community.
October 31st Drive-Thru Trick-Or-Treat and Food Drive In Arlington Heights
The events mentioned above did a great job connecting Dahme with the local community. That is why on October 31st Dahme hosted yet another great event with the Arlington Heights community. This time families pulled up dressed in their Halloween costumes to donate food again to the pantry at St. Edna’s. In return Dahme gave out candy for all of the excited trick-or-treaters.
Dahme was able to again deliver a crate full of goods to the local food pantry. The event even drew out a WGN news crew who broadcasted live from 610 Arthur Ave! The relationship Dahme has built with the St. edna food pantry continues to grow and we could not do it without the support of our amazing Arlington Heights community. Thank you all!
