DAVIS Impact Team: Giving Back to the Community

At DAVIS Companies, we are dedicated to serving our community and giving back in any way we can. Our DAVIS Impact Team is the perfect example of how our company strives to make a difference. By focusing on local charities and causes that matter to our team members, we put our service-oriented values into action for the betterment of our local community.

Projects We’ve Been Part Of – Creating Positive Change

United Way Tri-County Tools for School

We have had the privilege of supporting United Way Tri-County for their Tools for School drive for over 10 years. This annual event helps provide underprivileged students with necessary school supplies, such as notebooks, backpacks, and calculators. With our donations and help from the team, we have been able to provide school supplies to 1000’s of school children to get ready for the school year!

Fit4Cause Triple Challenge

Our team’s inspiration is fueled by the motivation to promote health while making a positive difference in our community, and Fit4Cause is the perfect opportunity to do just that. We’re proud as punch to say that our DAVIS team participates in the Triple Challenge, biking, running, and flexing their muscles at bootcamp stations, all while raising funds for a good cause. It’s like a fitness-themed carnival, only the prizes are the satisfaction of helping others and perhaps a few less inches on the waistline.

Hope For the Holidays

Hope for the Holidays is an annual charity event run by United Way. We partner with local organizations to help those in need during the holiday season. Over the years, we have provided gifts to more than 600 children from low-income families.

Food Drives

The effect of food insecurity is greater than most people realize. That’s why we’ve been part of food drives with our Impact Team to help those in need of a nutritious meal. Our team collects and donates canned goods, non-perishables, and other food items to local food banks.

First-hand Experience of How We’re Making a Difference!

Travis, our OPS Enablement Manager, shares his experience about being part of DAVIS Impact Team:

When I was younger, my family would gather around a blank pine tree every December to hang ornaments for the season. My mom would put on the Sesame Street Christmas Sing a long album on the record player and we’d decorate the tree singing along to Christmas carols. There was a song near the end that was called “Keep Christmas with you (all through the year)” that still resonates with me to this day. The message behind that wonderful Big Bird ballad is that you should maintain a spirit of giving year-round instead of just during those snowy holiday months.

It’s in that same spirit of giving back that is fundamental to the Impact team at DAVIS. The idea behind the impact team was that DAVIS would give every employee 16 hours a year to go out and do good for the community through volunteering. It’s up to you how you use it. I’ve been with DAVIS for about 10 years and my choice for these Impact hours is to give blood. To date, I’ve given over 6 gallons of blood to the Red Cross. I try to go every 56 days and get my donations in as an effort to give back to the local community. Your blood regenerates in your body about every 2 months, so as the Canadian Red Cross motto states, “It’s in you to give!”.

If you can, I highly recommend stopping by a donation site or drive to give blood. Besides the tasty cookies and juice afterwards, you will be filled with a rewarding sensation that you have given back to your local community and helped those who are in need, in addition to keeping that Christmas spirit with you “all through the year”.

Like him, many of our team members have taken part in Impact Team initiatives, from volunteering at the local animal shelter to conducting food drives for those facing food insecurity. Through service and leadership, we are making a difference in the lives of those around us – one project at a time!
