The Douglas Company, a General Contractor in Holland, Ohio, recently donated $2,100 in food donations to the Nightingales Harvest food pantry in Toledo, Ohio. The donation was made in honor of Brian McCarthy, a well-loved executive of the company who lost his battle with cancer this year.
This year the annual food drive was conducted virtually through team member’s monetary donations. The donations allowed us to purchase in bulk the most-needed food items that will soon find their way into the kitchens of Toledo-area cancer patients and their families.
“The Douglas Company understands the importance of a local organization that provides food access for people in need. The donation is just one of many the company makes to charities and non-profit organizations through our Douglas Cares Program,” said Nikki Lopez, Marketing Coordinator at the Douglas Company. “Our team proud to support Nightingales Harvest and their initiatives in providing food, hope, and security to area cancer fighters.”
