DLLR employees donate $456.50, food to Food Resources

January 07, 2008

The Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation's local Unemployment Insurance and Job Center divisions presented Ruth Ann Callaham, executive director of Food Resources Inc., with a donation of $456.50 and several boxes of food to support the local holiday food drive.

Food Resources is a warehouse-size, nonprofit food bank providing donated food to the community through a variety of programs.

"We decided this would be a good holiday project because many of our customers are helped by the local food banks, especially at this time of year." said Faye Gossert, Unemployment Insurance Claim Center administrator.

The money and food items were donated by employees. Staff members also cleaned out their closets and collected silent auction items to raise more money. This is one of many community projects and fundraising efforts in which the Washington County DLLR office in Hagerstown is involved.

The Job Center is open for any individuals needing job search assistance. For more information about DLLR's Washington County's One-Stop Center, call 301-393-8255 or go to www.mwejobs.com.
