Perdue Farms’ Milford associates contribute $19,734 to United Way of Delaware
Perdue associates in Milford have supported the United Way of Delaware since 1999. This year’s campaign allowed associates to use a simple payroll deduction process to individually support United Way partner agencies in Kent and Sussex counties.
“At Perdue, where teamwork is important to success, our associates as a team recognize the importance of neighbors helping neighbors,” said Dean Walston, director of Perdue operations in Milford. “I’m inspired by our associates’ willingness to dig deep into their pockets to support their local community, even in uncertain economic times. I’m proud of their commitment to helping others in the community.”
The United Way of Delaware is a non-profit organization whose mission is to maximize the community’s resources to improve the lives of all members in the community. Through the combination of generous individual and business contributions, the United Way of Delaware is able to support such agencies in Kent and Sussex counties as Kent-Sussex Industries, Boys & Girls clubs, American Red Cross, Read-A-Loud Delaware, the YWCA and Food Bank of Delaware.
Michelle Taylor, president and chief executive officer of United Way of Delaware, said, “A pessimist, they say, sees a glass of water as being half empty; an optimist sees the same glass as half full. But those who are giving see a glass of water and start looking for someone who might be thirsty. On behalf of United Way of Delaware, I extend my sincere and heartfelt thanks to our friends at Perdue for your generosity in quenching the thirst for social and economic change throughout our communities across Delaware.”
