  • A Food Drive At Top Line Gives Thanksgiving Dinner

    At this time of the year, we are all reminded of how blessed and fortunate we are. Unfortunately, there are some people not as fortunate. Top Line’s adopted Elf Fund Family is among the less fortunate so it was only appropriate that we provide them with the food for their Thanksgiving dinner. With the various fund raisers we had throughout the year with participation from our ABC Family of Companies we were able to provide the perishable items needed. We also had a food drive and Top Line employees were eager to help and provided the non-perishable items.
