DeWys Manufacturing Inc., a West – Michigan based metal solutions company, would like to recognize their compassionate and charitable team members for another fulfilling year of community service. The company takes pride in knowing their team members have helped improve someone’s life, and enjoyed creating positive relationships in the community.
In May, DeWys Manufacturing team members had the opportunity to volunteer their Saturday morning with the Kids Food Basket organization. During this time food was prepped for the sack suppers program that will go towards 7,500 children in the greater West Michigan area. During the month of October, a group of 20 volunteers from DeWys Mfg. joined together to build two houses through Habitat for Humanity of Kent County. Each house had 10 people and the projects consisted primarily of framing and insulating. Not only did the DeWys team members provide sweat equity, the company also sponsored both houses by covering the cost of supplies. Finally, DeWys held their annual Thanksgiving canned food drive in November. This year a competition was held between value streams to bring in the most canned goods. It was a record breaking year as team members joined together to donate more than 450 pounds of food to Feeding America West Michigan.
The volunteers from DeWys Manufacturing helped in making 2016 a banner year for community involvement. The company is looking forward to the positive impacts the team members will make in 2017.
