The Holiday Season is a time for thanking those who have made our successes possible, and for extending a helping hand to others. It is always better to give than to receive, and to stay true to this ideal the team at Dougherty has partnered with four very deserving causes.
CANstruction 2016 – Orange County Food Bank
CANstruction Orange County 2016 was a success! This year, thanks to the helpful donations of our sponsors and the Dougherty team on build night, we were able to donate over 5,900 cans to the Orange County Food Bank.
Thanksgiving Basket – The Friendly Center
The Friendly Center is a comprehensive family and community resource center dedicated to improving the lives of children, adults and seniors by helping them move toward self-sufficiency through immediate aid and a variety of educational and life skills programs. This year Dougherty donated a traditional Thanksgiving dinner complete with a turkey and all of the trimmings to one very deserving family in Orange County.
Adopt-A-Family – Alameda County Social Services
This year our Oakland staff worked alongside the Alameda Social Services Agency to help improve the lives of children and families in the City of Oakland and surrounding cities within Alameda County. Each Dougherty employee participated by pairing up with a colleague to grant the wish list of three adopted families. Together the staff brainstormed gift ideas, shopped and wrapped each present. The team is grateful to have been able to participate in changing the lives of members of the community.
Adopt-A-Family – Share Our Selves
Dougherty is honored to once again adopt a family through Share Our Selves (SOS), a nationally recognized nonprofit organization providing the highest quality safety net services to the homeless and low-income families in Orange County, California. It has been a pleasure for us to make this family’s holiday wishes come true and make this Christmas memorable for the entire family.
