C.H. Coakley Now Accepting Businesses to Join Fifth Annual Dinner on the Mayflower Food Drive

Oct. 11, 2013

For its fifth consecutive year, C.H. Coakley is organizing Dinner on the Mayflower, a citywide food drive. All of the food collected during Dinner on the Mayflower benefits Milwaukee’s Hunger Task Force.

The food drive is named Dinner on the Mayflower because it involves the logistics and Mayflower moving division at C.H. Coakley.

Participating in the food drive is practically effortless. It allows any size company to collect food at its location without having to coordinate pickup or delivery of collection barrels. Employees and customers are then encouraged to donate.

Participation is simple.

~Contact Lazelle Thomas-Conners, event coordinator at 414-372-7000 or lazelle.thomas-conners@chcoakley.com by Oct. 22, 2013 to let her know you want your business to be involved.

~Your food barrel will be delivered to your business on Oct. 29, 2013.
Encourage employees and clients to bring non-perishable food items and put them in the barrel.

~C.H. Coakley will pick up the barrel of donated food in one of its Mayflower trucks on Nov. 15, 2013, just in time for the holidays.


“The goal of Dinner on the Mayflower is simple: help Milwaukee families in need have enough food to eat,” says Michael Coakley, managing partner of C.H. Coakley. “We make this food drive fun and practically effortless for participating companies. Every company really should be involved.”
