City-Wide Food Drive to Start Soon

Oct. 19, 2011

C.H. Coakley is getting prepared for the Dinner on the Mayflower city-wide food drive, which will benefit Hunger Task Force’s Food for Families program. The food drive begins Tuesday, November 1st, 2011 and runs through November 16th.


Participating in Dinner on the Mayflower allows 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 C.H. Coakley at 414-372-7000 or email to get your business 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 their Mayflower trucks on Wednesday, November 16, 2011.


“This food drive is simple and fun. The time is now to contact us so we can deliver your food barrel on November 1st,” states Michael Coakley, managing partner of C.H. Coakley. “Milwaukee’s hungry families are counting on us. All you need to do is say yes and we will do the rest.”
