A local company is looking to help members of the community.
To meet its goal of giving back, DB’s Plumbing and Drain hosted its first annual canned food drive last month.
The Woodbridge-based plumbing company asked county residents to donate five non-perishable items. Donors received a $50 voucher.
The business collected 585 items, exceeding its 500-item goal. The non-perishables were brought to The Salvation Army on Tuesday.
“We’re just very thankful for our customers that helped fill a need for our community,” David Buky, DB’s Plumbing and Drain president said. “Our goal was to be able to provide for people when it’s not Christmas or Thanksgiving.”
Many donations come in during the winter holidays. However, non-perishable items are also needed throughout the rest of the year.
“It’s great that a lot of people donate during Thanksgiving and Christmas Time,” said Brian Bloxom, a member of the Prince William County Salvation Army’s Advisory Council. “Families still need help throughout the spring, summer and fall, and that’s why we appreciate people donate during the year.”
