Dot Foods donates $5,000 to law enforcement
Dot Foods recently donated $5,000 in order to sponsor the National 2017 Uniformed Safety Education Officers Workshop.
Dot Foods is based out of Mt. Sterling, Illinois and is the nation's first and largest food industry redistributor.
This is the second year Dot Foods has contributed to the USEOW, whose mission is to assist officers to improve the safety of our communities and roadways.
“We are happy to help the USEOW with this donation,” said Duskee Kassing, Director of Operations for DTI Mt. Sterling. “Law enforcement officers have an incredibly challenging job. Our Dot Transportation drivers spend thousands of hours on the road every year across the country, and we know firsthand how important law enforcement officers are in keeping everyone safe.”
The check was presented by Kassing to Sergeant Mike Kindhart, Illinois State Police Safety Education Unit Manager, at Dot's headquarters.
"Educating motorists helps save lives by preventing crashes from ever occurring," said Sergeant Mike Kindhart. "The USEOW provides a great opportunity for officers to learn new strategies to address traffic safety challenges in their communities back home. Dot Transportation Inc.’s continued support of the USEOW will ensure officers receive this beneficial training to help keep Illinois roadways safe."
