Here at the Ohlmann Group, we have a long history of giving back to the Dayton community. Following this tradition, we have committed to being socially responsible and caring for our community as individuals and as an organization. We’re living out this commitment by arranging monthly trips to local organizations to volunteer and give back to our city.

This week, we volunteered at The Foodbank in Dayton. For 40 years, The Foodbank has served as the primary source of food for the hunger-relief network in the Miami Valley. In their large warehouse, they store and distribute food and food-related items to a number of food pantries, soup kitchens, and emergency shelters.

For our volunteer project, we donned some hairnets and gloves and helped repack bags of oatmeal, brown sugar, and raisins to be distributed to families in the Dayton area for quick and easy breakfasts. As a team, we worked to carefully assemble and weigh each bag, packing over 270 bags!

Helping this great organization, even in a small way, was rewarding and fun. Once again, it also served as further confirmation that the OG knows how to work as a team to get the job done. We’re looking forward to our next opportunity to help this essential Miami Valley organization.

We’d like to send a special thank you to Aaron Hill, Volunteer Coordinator with The Foodbank, for arranging our visit. We’re also looking forward to our next volunteer opportunity in the Dayton area. You can follow along with the hashtag #OGgivesback.
