DMAI Attendees Volunteer at Food Bank
In July, Destination Marketing Association welcomed representatives from DMOs across the country. The DMO is often the connecting point for meeting planners looking for volunteer opportunities in a host city. The convention showed the benefit of providing such projects with a service day of its own. Attendees participated in a service project at Feeding South Florida, a food bank that serves daycare centers, homeless shelters, residential homes for the physically and mentally challenged, assisted-living facilities for the elderly, youth programs, soup kitchens and emergency food pantries. Watch the video below to see the response of some of the volunteers.
