DSC Dredge concluded its Thanksgiving celebrations and welcomed the season of giving with a display of generosity from its employees. The company organized a food drive and toy collection, resulting in substantial donations to families in need and community organizations.
Employees at the Poplarville, La., location rallied together, collecting non-perishable food items that were subsequently donated to The Brothers Keeper Ministries in Poplarville. Simultaneously, the headquarters in Reserve gathered food donations, which were passed on to First Baptist Church, benefitting the Ministry of Care in LaPlace. Collectively, these efforts provided food to more than 90 families during the Thanksgiving season.
In addition to the food drive, a similar toy drive was ongoing. DSC’s head office in Reserve, La., coordinated the donation of toys collected by employees and the organization to LOCC (Loving Our Community’s Children). The LOCC foundation, dedicated to assisting families in need, aimed to support 165 families this year. Its Poplarville location donations brought smiles to its kids in the community local hospital.
But the spirit of giving did not end there as numerous DSC Dredge employees, opted to forego their annual company gift, choosing to redirect their gifts towards less fortunate families. At the end of the season, this collective effort will bring joy and assistance to multiple homes as their donations were given to the Louisiana Federal Credit Union and River Parish Toys for Tots Toy Drive, New Wine Christian Fellowship Church, and the Gonzales Police Department Toy Drive.
President and CEO Bob Wetta expressed the significance of these initiatives, emphasizing the family-oriented culture of DSC Dredge. “As a family-owned company, our employees are an integral part of our extended family. Their selfless acts truly embody the values we hold dear. We are not just a company; we are a community dedicated to making a positive impact on the lives of others.”
DSC Dredge remains committed to fostering a culture of compassion and community involvement, exemplifying the true spirit of the holiday season.
