Look at our list of company values, and you will find one that is different from what most companies include: Kindness. We believe it’s important to consider how our actions affect others, both the people we work with and those who live in and around our community.
As a company, we identify and support a number of worthy causes, and encourage our employees to do the same by creating opportunities for them to offer their contributions. Those contributions are sometimes financial, but more often, we encourage personal, hands-on donations of their time and talent. This form of giving provides the double benefit of supporting others in need while reminding us of our need to be thankful for the things we've been blessed with.
In the last year, we've been excited to support several charitable initiatives. During the Christmas season, DMP employees partnered with SeniorAge, which is our local Area Agency on Aging. Each department adopted a senior, and employees donated their time and resources to make sure our seniors' wish lists were fulfilled! In the fall, DMP employees gave up two lunch breaks to assemble more than 1,300 PowerPack napsacks filled with food for school-age children who may go hungry over the weekends. And earlier this summer, we partnered with Convoy of Hope's Hands of Hope. DMP employees volunteered their time to sort, pack, count and label items distributed throughout the world for disaster relief situations and nutritional feeding programs. What a joy it is to support others in need!
