We Care

Donating our hands, hearts and resources to our community is one of the most valuable things we can do as an organization. We give back. Our organization and employees support a variety of not-for-profit organizations that contribute to health, wellness and healing.

Each month Dober randomly selects an employee to make a $1,000.00 donation to a special cause that employee cares about. The donations are made in that employee's name.
