LATHAM, NY - DWM Facilities Maintenance launched the Dare to Beat MS campaign earlier this spring. Through a partnership with their national technician network, DWM Cares raised $14,222 for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
With many ties to Multiple Sclerosis, DWM named the MS Society as partner in giving in 2014. Since then, DWM Cares (the company’s charitable works team) has been committed to fighting MS.
For donations of varying amounts, DWM technicians sponsored dares to embarrass their favorite DWM employees. Donations ranged from $25 to pie a DWM employee in the face up to a $2,000 sponsorship that resulted in the company's COO, Brian Whitt shaving his head.
“I am proud of the collective efforts of our employees and their desire to volunteer time and effort toward helping others," said Brian Whitt, Chief Operating Officer. "DWM will continue to support these efforts financially and by encouraging volunteer participation throughout 2017."
"We are extremely thankful to have such great technician partners who supported our efforts in the fight against MS," said Samantha Sommerman, Vendor Relations Lead. "It meant so much to our employees to have such strong support for a cause that is so meaningful to DWM."
The funds raised from WalkMS champion awareness and research initiatives to help find a cure for Multiple Sclerosis. DWM is committed to helping find a cure for its family, friends, and employees living with this debilitating disease.
