D. C. Taylor Co. Finishes 2017 Charitable Campaign

December 19, 2017

D. C. Taylor Co. was proud to continue the 12 Months of Giving campaign it began in 2016. “Year one we supported about 25 organizations, non-profits, fundraisers, and local sports teams,” says Dana Harvey-Moore, Vice President Administration, D. C. Taylor Co., Cedar Rapids, IA. “This year we surpassed that, giving to more than 35.”

The 12 Months of Giving campaign was launched as a way for the company and its employees to support causes, community organizations, and national non-profits that are accomplishing extraordinary things. “If it matters to the employees, it matters to the company,” says Jana Madsen, Marketing Communications Associate, D. C. Taylor Co., Cedar Rapids, IA.

With four offices and input from employees, Dana and Jana created a calendar of themes to inspire the employees in Cedar Rapids, IA; Barrington, IL; Peoria, AZ; and Concord, CA, to seek out opportunities to volunteer or donate goods, services, or money. Themes ranged from four-legged friends to sexual assault awareness and Alzheimer’s.

Highlights of the 2017 program include:
