Marne, MI (December 16th, 2015) – DeWys Manufacturing Inc., a West – Michigan based metal solutions company, would like to recognize the volunteer efforts our team members gave during the 2015 calendar year. Not only does DeWys Mfg. value our relationships with our customers, but also with local organizations that are in need of supplies and services to continue the positive growth of the greater Grand Rapids area.
DeWys Manufacturing team members contributed their services to four organizations that devote their time and efforts to the community. In February and November, DeWys Mfg. held food drives that allowed team members to donate canned food items to Feeding America of West Michigan which in turn is donated to one of the 1,100 food pantries, soup kitchens, or homeless shelters in their service area. During the month of August, DeWys collected back to school supplies like pencils, folders and notebooks to contribute to North Kent Community Services for children who were in need of these items to start their school year. In October, DeWys celebrated MFG Day by teaming up with another local manufacturer and Habitat for Humanity of Kent County to winterize their learning garden which is used to help train future homeowners on how to maintain their yard once they move into their home. To finish up the year, DeWys Manufacturing team members collected new and unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots. These toys will be donated to children in the lakeshore area to help spread the message of hope and joy on Christmas.
Volunteering time and/or donating supplies are just a few ways to give back to those that are less fortunate than others. DeWys Manufacturing team members are humbled to know that they helped make a difference in the greater Grand Rapids area, and are looking forward to new volunteer activities in 2016.
