D. C. Taylor Co. Wraps Up 3rd Annual Charitable Giving Campaign
D. C. Taylor Co. is proud to conclude its 2018 charitable giving campaign. “We are very excited to have completed our 12 Months of Giving initiative for the third year in a row,” says Dana Harvey-Moore, Vice President Administration, D. C. Taylor Co., Cedar Rapids, IA.
The 12 Months of Giving campaign was launched in 2016 as a way for the company and its employees to support causes, community organizations, and national non-profits that are accomplishing extraordinary things. Employees in each of the company’s four offices (Cedar Rapids, IA; Barrington, IL; Peoria, AZ; and Concord, CA) are empowered to seek out opportunities to volunteer or donate goods, services, or money. “D. C. Taylor Co. is committed to supporting organizations, non-profits, fundraisers, and local sports teams in the communities where we live and work,” adds Harvey-Moore.
The program has provided the added benefit of education. “Our 12 Months of Giving program has helped raise awareness among employees about many of the services and assistance programs available in our communities. We’re thrilled to support the critical work they’re doing,” says Jana Madsen, Marketing Communications Associate, D. C. Taylor Co., Cedar Rapids, IA.
Highlights from the 2018 12 Months of Giving campaign include:
- Donating to Foundation 2 and getting a better understanding of the signs, symptoms, and local/national resources available to help treat anxiety and depression from the organization’s Mobile Crisis Outreach Program Manager.
- Collecting school supplies for Families Helping Families of Iowa, which supports the needs of children in foster care.
