Verizon Wireless Shares Thanksgiving Cheer with PAL!

This week, PAL received an extremely generous food donation to share with deserving families on Thanksgiving! Verizon Wireless employees collected money — which was used to purchase turkeys — and canned goods to contribute to this annual event, all of which were later distributed throughout each PAL center for the upcoming holiday.

PAL received over 105 meals, 70 of which were complete with a turkey. Extra canned goods were also given out to PAL families.

Verizon Wireless Human Resources Consultant Chris Gallagher notes the enthusiasm of the Verizon employees and their dedication to this drive year after year. Gallagher, who has worked on this project for 15 years, emphasizes that this commitment is truly driven by Verizon employees.

“It’s incredible to walk into a room and see row after row of tables just piled with food. We’re really proud of our employees’ generosity, and are thrilled to help PAL again this year,” says Gallagher.

Organized through the Human Resources Department at Verizon Wireless, this collection has helped support PAL’s mission for several years. Gallagher mentions the close connection that many employees feel towards PAL, as Verizon Wireless has been a major sponsor and friend of PAL!

T&N donated a truck and driver to deliver the items to PAL Headquarters, and PAL Officers took the food to each center. Verizon Wireless’ food drive also supported Project Home, Project Rainbow and Shelter from the Storm.

Thanks to Verizon Wireless employees and volunteers for supporting PAL! Happy Thanksgiving!
