Share the love! We’re giving back to our local community, and we invite all to join our mission.
Transform Dallas is Keste’s employee volunteer initiative, and we work with our local community in Dallas, Texas, to improve the environment and provide important resources for local residents. As part this initiative, we are hosting ‘Share the Love Food Drive’ on Saturday, February 27th to support Crossroads Community Services.
Crossroads Community Services provides assistance to families in need in North Texas, and their mission is to “nourish our community’s low-income families and individuals by providing nutritious food and supportive education.” Due to the pandemic and economic downturn of 2020, Crossroads Community Services is receiving more demand than ever, and they need our help to continue to serve low-income families and individuals who are at risk of hunger and rely on gifted meals.
The food drive will be held at the main entrance of our office in Plano, TX on Saturday, February 27th. We will have “contact-less” drop off, so just drive up, pop the trunk and well take care of the rest.
‘Share the Love’ Food Drive details:
When: Saturday, February 27th, 2021, 9AM – 1PM
Where: Keste Office, 6100 W. Plano Parkway, Plano, Texas 75093 (main entrance parking lot, West Plano Pkwy)
Types of donations accepted: We are accepting all shelf-stable pantry items and monetary donations, but there is a great need for food items for our diabetic neighbors. Brown rice, whole wheat pasta, oats, nuts, lentils, beans and Velveeta cheese are currently in high demand.
Donate online: Starting today, Keste is facilitating online donations for Crossroads Community Services: https://ccsdallas.org/give/ Type “Keste” in the comments section when making your donation.
Over the past decade, Keste, our customers and our partners have come together each year to donate to organizations that make a difference in the Dallas area. As food banks are experiencing an increased demand for food and supplies, we have made it our mission to support this effort, and we hope you are able to join us.
