As part of National Volunteer Month, C&S is pleased to honor Dean D’Errico as the company’s 2015 Volunteer of the Year. Dean is a Driver at the C&S distribution center in Plant City, Florida, where he also lives.What Dean has done is remarkable. With his family, and in addition to working full-time, he has established a nonprofit organization called “Many Hands.” Many Hands provides free or low-cost repairs to the homes and vehicles of low-income families, senior citizens, disabled individuals, and survivors of domestic abuse. The organization partners with local businesses and groups to create awareness and to provide discounted services when the project is beyond the scope of Dean and the other dedicated volunteers at Many Hands.

C&S has honored one person as Volunteer of the Year since 2005.
