Holiday Giving Update & Greeting

 

DC Group’s holiday giving recipients this year included the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season Recovery Fund. This initiative of the Center for Disaster Philanthropy focuses efforts on:

  • Support of vulnerable populations whose lives and livelihoods have been devastated by hurricane
  • Prevailing, acute needs that emerge in the weeks and months after the disaster
  • Filling in gaps where public resources are unavailable or scarce
  • Fostering productive relationships among grantees and relief organizations for ongoing care

Employees also continued the annual Toys for Tots drive, and had fun appearing on the local news station to highlight this program.

Thank you for the continued business that allows us to give back each year. All of us at DC Group wish you a happy holiday season, and continued prosperity in the new year.
