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.
