D. C. Taylor Co.’s “12 Months of Giving” Campaign Supports 25+ Organizations

December 20, 2016

Cedar Rapids, IA (Dec. 20, 2016) – D. C. Taylor Co. is proud to announced that it has completed its year-long “12 Months of Giving” campaign. The initiative was launched to make it easy for D. C. Taylor Co. team members and their families to be charitable.

Employees were under no obligation to participate. “This campaign is all about raising awareness about causes and organizations in need and facilitating the opportunity to give,” says Jana Madsen, Marketing Communications Associate, D. C. Taylor Co., Cedar Rapids, Iowa. “If it’s easier to do good, more people will.”

To enable employees from each of the company’s four offices to participate, themes were created (one for each month). Employees could then identify local or national non-profit organizations, community events, volunteer opportunities, etc. Some of the campaign themes were 4-Legged Friends, Let’s Get Active, and Childhood and Breast Cancer Awareness.

D. C. Taylor Co. team members especially enjoyed “Massage for a Cause” on the Let’s Get Active month, where employees’ purchase of a chair massage went toward new sports equipment for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cedar Rapids. School supplies, winter coats, non-perishable food items, and angel tree holiday gifts were collected. And for the first time in the company’s history, D.C. Taylor Co. had a team in the Especially for You Race Against Breast Cancer.
