DMW Fundraising – Sets A Most Perfect Example Of Corporate Responsibility!
Last Friday we met some seriously wonderful people, from DMW Fundraising. They came to volunteer and they brought a ton of stuff with them to donate.
DMW’s president, Debbie Merlino, told us – “Our recent experience at GiftsToGive opened our eyes to the large number of children living in poverty on the south coast and just how great the income disparity really is. It also changed how we see and think about what a non-profit organization can be.
GiftsToGive is like no other non-profit I’ve ever come in contact with. While it’s function is connecting children to giving and service while serving the neediest children on the south coast with daily essentials like clothes, shoes, underwear and coats, you can’t help but feel there’s an even higher purpose working in the background. From teaching children about the importance of giving and sharing…to supporting early literacy programs…down to making the best use of every donation they receive. When people are passionate about truly making an impact in their community, and creative in how they approach problems, they can make great things happen like GiftsToGive.”
Our CEO, Jim Stevens, had this to say – “While our non-profit business model is all about connecting children to giving and service, adult volunteers are critical to our work. They don’t need a lot of training, need almost no supervision and most of our adult volunteers spread the word and open up their networks to us. We’re grateful to the fine folks at DMW, for their hard work and we look forward to their help in our building a more caring community. We would also like to thank them for “getting it”. That it’s one thing for businesses to talk about corporate responsibility and it’s another thing for them to act on it. DMW truly is a most perfect corporate example of walking the walk!”
