Each year, one C&S associate is honored for outstanding service to the community.
2020 Volunteer of the Year: Martha Alvarez-Taylor
C&S Wholesale Grocers has awarded Martha Alvarez-Taylor, a senior industrial engineer, the company’s 2020 Volunteer of the Year award.
Martha dedicated 800 hours over the past year to two important organizations focused on helping women succeed. Martha has been an active volunteer and committee member at Women2Women, where she works with women across generations on personal and professional development. She also serves on the Board of Directors and leads the Diversity Committee at Schuylkill Women in Crisis, an organization that offers hope and healing for those impacted by partner violence or sexual abuse.
Martha became a candidate for the C&S Volunteer of the Year award by submitting a Dollars for Doers application. Each year since 2005, a panel of employees rates each application on three elements — spirit of volunteerism, leadership and the desire to make a difference in people’s lives. Through the Dollars for Doers program, nonprofit organizations benefit twice: once from employees’ contribution of time and again from a matching contribution of $1 per hour volunteered.
