DailySteals + Fresh Food = Positive Impact
On an early Monday morning in March, members of the Daily Steals team took to the town to help out some people in need by giving out hundreds of pounds of fresh food. Assisting a local food bank, Daily Steals employees volunteered their strength to help lift and carry various boxes and bags of produce to local families who have felt the economic downturn a little harder than others. Working collaboratively with the food bank administrators, the Daily Steals team compiled food packages for approximately 50+ families. These packages included 50lb bags of carrots, potatoes, onions and sweet potatoes, along with cartons of apples, oranges and pears.
The experience was a success for everyone involved and left the Daily Steals team feeling positive for having helped give back to their neighborhood. “I felt like I was part of the community,” said Shannon, a Daily Steals employee. “I was glad to lend a helping hand.” Shannon, like the rest of the Daily Steals team, greeted families in need with a smile and helped them organize their heavy food, package it up and transfer it all to the trunks of their vehicles. The experience put things in perspective for Brian, a customer service representative who has done charity work in the past. “Life isn't as easy for most people, and we definitely take the little things, like food every night, for granted.”
Going into this charity event, the Daily Steals team knew they would be helping out those in need, but it was perhaps less expected that they themselves would have come out feeling helped too, having seen their community in a new light and realizing that positive change can be made with just a little effort. Customer service representative Aston said, “It was the type of program that left you wondering why this isn't done more often and in more places.” The Daily Steals team asks this same question and plans to make even more strides to help better the community in the future.
