Dixon Schwabl donates to Ronald McDonald House Charities
In the spirit of the holidays, Dixon Schwabl employees donated $5 to wear jeans 2 Fridays in December to raise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Rochester, NY. With the donations, the agency purchased handheld games for the children of the families that are heading home from the hospital and/or the Ronald McDonald House during the holiday season. Thank you to everyone who participated in this charity toy drive!
Dixon Schwabl donates $1,860 to Multiple Sclerosis
For the first time ever, Dixon Schwabl took part in “The Stand Against MS,” a fundraiser for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society of Upstate New York. The agency participated in a series of lemonade stands throughout the month of August, inviting employees’ children to help sell lemonade and baked goods. Dixon Schwabl also developed a virtual online lemonade stand for the public to donate. The agency raised a total of $1,860 through donations from the lemonade stand at Dixon Schwabl and the online lemonade stand. The money raised will help provide programs, services and research to serve more than 12,400 people with MS and their families in Upstate New York. Dixon Schwabl is happy to help the community and raise money for such a great cause! Thank you to our employees, clients and the community for helping to make this fundraiser such a huge success!
Public relations supervisor, Jon Alhart, makes it happen!
As part of Dixon Schwabl’s strategy and commitment to the Greater Rochester community, employees are given a special day to “Make it Happen” and give back through volunteerism. Throughout the year, each employee is granted eight hours of paid time off to pitch in at an organization of their choice.
Jon Alhart, a member of the Pen-Web Rotary, along with four other Pen-Web Rotarians, volunteered with Junior Achievement in a Day. Junior Achievement's mission is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in the global economy.
For Jon’s Make it Happen day, he taught a fifth-grade class at East Rochester Elementary School the Junior Achievement program about free enterprise and entrepreneurship. Jon used his own experience at Dixon Schwabl to expand on the importance of creating a great culture where employees are valued and supported, so that if they decided to launch their own businesses someday, they would have a good starting point!
Junior Achievement is the world’s largest organization dedicated to educating students about workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs.
