Xerox is making a big food donation to the House of Mercy to help families in the Rochester area.
On Thursday, volunteers packed and delivered donated goods as part of Operation Food Basket.
It’s an annual holiday campaign to help those in need during the holiday season.
“I think it helps them feel good about doing something for someone else,” said Bernadette Durman, volunteer coordinator. “Many of these groups are teams and some of them have broken up, and they’re in different work groups and they do it again every year, so it’s a chance to see their friends and old co-workers.”
Each basket contains a weeks’ worth of food, and will go to about 2,400 people in the Rochester area.
