2019 wrapped up Dot Foods’ fifth year partnering with the Alzheimer’s Association. The goal of the campaign remains the same every year: to help educate people about the disease and provide resources and support for those who may need assistance.

“Alzheimer’s disease has had a profound impact on the Dot Foods family. And while that starts with the Tracy family, it’s clear that the cause was embraced enterprise-wide,” said Jim Medd, Senior Associate Director of Corporate Initiatives for the Alzheimer’s Association.

Each year the partnership has grown, as well as the dollars contributed by employees, at a rate of almost 30% year-over-year. Dot matches all money raised through fundraising efforts and payroll deductions. 

While final numbers are still being tallied, Dot has already captured a remarkable achievement.

With almost 50 nationwide companies representing National Teams for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, Dot ranked number 1 among all companies on per capita fundraising! 

“Dot Foods’ efforts on both education and fundraising are unprecedented for a company of its size. We simply have not seen this level of success before, even from companies with a much larger workforce,” said Medd. 

Be on the lookout for more detailed information regarding the wrap up of the 2019 Campaign in an upcoming Dot Link.
