Dead River Company is taking part in Hunger Action Month activities to help raise awareness and money to aid the fight against hunger across their service areas in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts.

Inside all Dead River Company offices, employees will, again this year, wear blue jeans as a sign of their support for Hunger Action Month. During the week of Sept. 22-26, for a donation of at least $5, employees can wear jeans to work all week. The employee donations will be matched dollar for dollar by Dead River Company, with the total being donated to Good Shepherd Food Bank for Maine offices.

The public is invited to get involved, too, on the Dead River Company Facebook Page. From Sept. 22 to Oct. 5, “like” Dead River Company on Facebook, and the company will make a $5 donation. Post a photo wearing something orange ”“ the color of Hunger Action Month ”“ and Dead River will donate another $5, up to $10,000.
