The winning post will be selected by Berkeys employees the week of Christmas, December 22, and that winning charity will be given a one-thousand dollar ($1,000) donation by Berkeys on behalf of the person who submitted the winning post.
Mr. Jamie Wooldridge, President of Berkeys said, "The Dallas Metroplex has a lot of great local charities. We really wanted to give our Facebook followers and the public an opportunity to showcase the charities they love, support and volunteer or work at. And the end result is one charity will receive a thousand-dollar donation on behalf of Berkeys and the person who had the winning submission."
"Berkeys supports various charities throughout the year," Mr. Wooldridge continued, "but one which is near and dear to our hearts is GRACE Grapevine. In fact, we just started a toy-drive to help provide toys for families that are a part of the Grace Christmas Cottage. We figured with dozens of trucks servicing customers throughout the DFW Metroplex, why not allow our customers to donate gifts which we can collect on behalf of that organization."
"There's so many great local charities, we wish we could help them all," Jamie said, "but this Facebook contest is just one way we thought we could help raise awareness for other charities and organizations in Dallas/Ft. Worth, and we hope it might inspire other organizations and members of our community to get involved by volunteering and donating their time, talent and money. Everyone working together to help those in need is what makes our city one of the best in the United States and the world."
