AT&T employee Justin Travis participates in the company’s Do One Thing (DOT) program by helping provide a Christmas meal to families who have nowhere else to go in his local community of Troy, Michigan. He helps hosts the annual dinner alongside of about 20 members of his extended family who pitch in to provide 20-35 turkeys, 20-25 hams and all of the trimmings.
Mayor Rick Sollars donates the use of the William D. Ford Senior Citizens Activity Center, a facility large enough to accommodate the 200-300 guests each year. “With the help of the community,” Lisa Domski, Justin’s aunt and co-founder of the Christmas for Everyone Dinner, said, “it’s grown into a very large get-together.”
In the words of long-term volunteer, Nancy Chensky, “The joy, it just spreads.”
As a DOT Champion, Justin Taylor received a contribution from AT&T to the organization of his choice, the Matthew Edwards Foundation, named for a local police officer who was killed in the line of duty.
