DWE = Customer + Community Service



January 4, 2021


Together, we are building communities. As we celebrate 20 years of DWE, we prepare for many more years of service and relationships built on communication, creativity, collaboration, and care. This holiday season, we are highlighting some of the community cornerstones we had the privilege not just to build but to serve.

And we’re just getting started, we have so much to build over the next 20 years…

Totally Kids Rehabilitation Hospital

Totally Kids Rehabilitation Hospital is committed to helping children communicate with loved ones this holiday season. Because of COVID-19, long-term patients felt isolated from the outside world and from those they love most. Totally Kids has long used scrapbooking as a way for their patients to express themselves, send gifts, and talk with their families and friends. Inspired by this project, we wanted to communicate to patients that they, too, are loved by their community. Our DWE team donated scrapbooking supplies and designed posters for our neighbors at Totally Kids to communicate hopeful messages with vibrant colors and well wishes. Totally Kids reminds us always to find ways to share hope.

Mead Valley Family Resource Center

The Grove Community Church is committed to collaborative efforts through its support of Feeding America at the Mead Valley Family Resource Center. Through the power of partnership, their team has been able to bring in more resources to Mead Valley than what Riverside County could do alone. Together, they serve 400-600 families every month. As long-time partners with The Grove Church, we support their dedication to community outreach by providing movie night gift boxes for distribution at the Mead Valley Resource Center. The Mead Valley Resource Center symbolizes hope to its community and is a product of meaningful collaboration.

Edmonds School District Kid’s Cafe

Edmonds School District is committed to creatively serving the homeless student population and overcoming online learning challenges. Homeless students perhaps felt the weight of adaptation to a global pandemic to be more unimaginable than the rest of us, as they were at the mercy of wherever they found shelter. To meet the needs of all their students, Edmonds School District envisioned a local Kid’s Cafe, a place where homeless students can not only connect to wifi but safely attend virtual classes, meet fellow students, and enjoy a hot meal. We’re partnering with Edmonds School District and design2LAST Architects to fulfill this vision. Together, we are creatively building ways to give students a sense of belonging.

Sbccd Child Development Centers

San Bernardino Community College District is committed to local children’s care in our hometown of San Bernardino. SBCCD houses Child Development Centers at both Crafton Hills and Valley College campuses. Each holiday season, SBCCD Child Development Centers host a toy drive sponsored by student organizations on campus. This year didn’t allow that. Instead, the DWE team and our contributing industry partners (see below) helped to donate over 300 toys, ensuring that each child receives a toy this season. The SBCCD Child Development Centers build a community where children can prosper because they were cared for, and we are proud to support their endeavors.
