Pennsylvania-based employees at The WEBstaurant Store stepped up their monthly community service efforts by taking part in three events in November. They kicked off the month by taking part in the Lancaster Sierra Club’s 100 tree planting event. Everyone gathered in the Lancaster County Central Park and planted a riparian buffer of 100 trees along the riverbank in less than three hours. This project will help keep the bank from eroding, improving the quality of the riverbed and surrounding areas.
Later in the month, The WEBstaurant Store held a cookie contest as the first fundraiser for The WEBstaurant Warriors, the company’s Pennsylvania Relay for Life team. There were piles of delicious cookies for tasting, and each vote was a 25 cent donation. In just one day, these great bakers raised $74.00!
To cap off the month, the company participated in The Extraordinary Give, a 24-hour countywide donation drive that raises money for a wide array of Lancaster area charitable organizations. Over 60 organizations were supported by our employees, for a WEBstaurant Store grand total of $2,242 in donations! Our donations were stretched even further by a generous matching gift from the Clark Foundation.
