It is a Jacobs’ tradition to celebrate Thanksgiving each year with every employee in Bloomfield before closing for the Thanksgiving long weekend.  Over 500 employees are served a turkey dinner across three shifts.  The kitchen staff worked hard to prepare enough turkey, gravy, dressing, sides, and desserts to feed everyone. 

Thanksgiving Turkey Handout and Donation

Each year, Jacobs purchases one turkey for each of its employees who work in the Bloomfield location.  The week before Thanksgiving, the turkeys are delivered, and employees can choose to either pick up their turkey for their Thanksgiving celebration or donate it to Foodshare, a local food bank in Bloomfield. 

Providing Thanksgiving Meals to Local Families

For many years, Jacobs has loaded up the company van with Thanksgiving meal baskets and headed to the Town of Bloomfield Social & Youth Services. This year Jacobs employees generously contributed to 16 meal baskets and grocery store gift cards which will help the town organization in their quest to provide hundreds of families with meals this Thanksgiving.
