From Heart to Hand: 2023 DWE Charitable Giving Recap



January 12, 2024


Committed to giving back, Design West Engineering (DWE) connected with community organizations across Southern California and the Puget Sound region to make an impact in 2023! For the fourth year (and counting), DWE teamed with local groups including the San Bernardino Valley College Child Development Center, the Inland Empire’s Ronald McDonald House, Path of Life Ministries, and the Foundation for Edmonds School District to support families in need.

In collaboration with industry partners SGH Architects and Tilden-Coil Constructors, more than 375 toys, gift cards, and blankets were donated during the final months of 2023. Since DWE introduced the company’s annual toy drive in 2020, staff and industry partners have collectively donated over 1,000 toys, 15,000 servings of food, and other resources to sustain the winter season for resource-limited households.
