Committed to our Communities
CDW is pleased to present the proceeds its 2021 charitable giving drive to the Greater Boston Food Bank. Employee contributions were matched dollar for dollar by CDW. Feedback from employees and clients alike has been heart-warming – we all want to be part of the solution to end food insecurity in our communities. Last year, 117 million pounds of healthy food passed through the GBFB Distribution Center in South Boston for sorting and then was delivered to food pantries, soup kitchens, meal programs at senior centers, and more than 600 partner agencies across Eastern Massachusetts. Thank you GBFB for all you do toward your bold mission to end hunger here.
In early December, we were able to celebrate the holiday season together with a festive luncheon and gift swap. Recent news of the rapid rise of COVID-19 variant Omicron is concerning to all and CDW is taking it very seriously. We remain committed to the health and safety of all our clients, our communities, and to the well being of our staff and their families. All employees are fully vaccinated and incorporating best practices to slow the spread of COVID-19 and its variants. We're here to help -- and to get the job done safely. Stay smart and healthy everyone!
