September 10, 2009 Milpitas, CA - In another successful attempt at raising food and other goods for The Milpitas Food Pantry, Duran & Venables’ 3rd Annual Food Drive exceeded expectations. A leading provider of grading and paving construction services in Northern California, Duran & Venables kicked off its month-long food drive to help raise food by hosting a barbeque for employees, vendors, and members of the local community. With the help of employees and vendors, the Food Drive was able to raise nearly two tons of food. “It is important to continue this tradition, even in the face of a challenging economy,” explained Sean Venables, president of Duran & Venables. “Participating with the Milpitas Food Pantry in this drive is especially important now because it has become increasingly more difficult for service organizations to help our community. The Food Drive is an admirable way of bringing our company together to assist our community, the very same effort we make for our customers.”

The Food Drive is a good way to convey our employee's and our vendor's interest in assisting our community," expressed Sean Venables, president of Duran & Venables.
