Alicia Hatcher volunteered at Generation Dayton Day 2017
Generation Dayton Day is when an estimated 150 young professionals took to the streets of Dayton on Friday, May 5th, 2017 to “Get Out, Give Back Dayton!” Known as Generation Dayton Day, this event marked its 11th anniversary where volunteers from all over the Dayton area met for lunch before embarking on assigned volunteer missions to nonprofit organizations in the Dayton area. The volunteer sites included up to 20 not-for- profit areas in which the volunteers selected their preferred work site. This is one of Generation Dayton’s largest attended events, giving the young professionals in the area an opportunity to give back.
Alicia volunteered at The Dayton Food Bank. She and her team assembled Good-Go packages for the monthly pick up for lower income people on disability, medical issues, etc.
The Foodbank is the primary source of food for more than 100 hunger relief programs in Greene, Montgomery and Preble counties. Its mission is threefold:
- To acquire and manage food resources and distribute them through the local hunger relief network
- To address the nutritional needs of targeted, at-risk populations (children, individuals with special dietary needs)
- To serve as advocate for the poor and hungry in our region
The Foodbank is a member of Feeding America, which provides food and support services to more than 200 food banks and food rescue organizations throughout the United States
