Dalton Carpet One and DCO Commercial Floors collected $6,030 from employees and a dollar-for-dollar company match to donate to local organizations. Employees also donated items for their adopted family through Open Hearts Center in Athens, Georgia.
“The generosity our employees have shown toward their communities is truly outstanding this season!” says JR Allred, president of Dalton Carpet One. “DCO has such impressive employees, and we are proud to work with such wonderful people.”
It started out with adopting a family through the Joyce Ervin Open Hearts Center. “We collected and purchased each item the family requested,” says Public Relations Manager, Adrienne Dean. “We know this family will appreciate it greatly!”
Athens resident Joyce Ervin and her family run Open Hearts Center out of their home, providing clothing and personal items to people in need. Joyce provided a list of needed items that DCO employees fulfilled.
They kept the momentum going with monetary donations in the amount of $3,015 from its 215 employees. DCO matched this dollar amount for a total of $6,030 going straight into local communities for each of our office locations.
Where did this money go? DCO focused on children, youth, and family this season. Here is a list of organizations where DCO donated monetary funds, on top of the items selected for the adopted family:
- Bethany Christian Services of East Georgia
- Food Bank of NE Georgia
- Texas Baptist Children’s Home
- St. Joseph Church Giving Tree
