Holiday greetings from DC Group

 

Every year DC Group donates a percentage of profits to groups and causes around the country. This year we helped fund wildfire relief efforts in California, and also contributed to The Trust for Public Land, which purchases and protects land for park use by future generations. Later this month we’ll continue our annual tradition of collecting toys at the office for Toys for Tots.

 

Thank you to our customers for helping us contribute to a better world in the new year! We wish you a peaceful and joyful holiday season.
