Giving Back to The Community
- Giving Back to The Community
Giving back to the community is good for the soul and, you don’t have to be rich to make a difference. We always feel good about ourselves when we do something for others.
On the last day of work before our Christmas break Doverco treated the employees to a delicious catered lunch. The festivities and luncheon are carefully planned by our Social Committee members who work hard throughout the year to organize our various events.
As in previous years at the annual closing luncheon it is our tradition to auction off any gifts received by our staff from suppliers, etc. We then donate all of the funds collected to The Children’s Wish Foundation
The industrious ladies of the social committee selected various gifts to be auctioned off and others for raffle. Our Going Once, Going Twice, SOLD auctioneer Mark Dover did a wonderful job entertaining the troops all the while encouraging more bids.
This year we managed to sell $670.00 worth of raffle tickets (the most ever!) and we were able to collect $365.00 for the items that were up for auction. In total, we raised $1,035 for The Children’s Wish Foundation. It was a fun time and a win win for all!
Each Christmas season we also collect food and gifts to donate to the Sun Youth Organization who then distribute them to those in need. The Doverco employees collected enough to send them two very large boxes of goodies.
Wishing everyone and happy, healthy and prosperous 2018!
