Dover Team Members Volunteer at Cradles to Crayons

A group of employees from Dover’s Finance, Accounting and Treasury teams spent an afternoon packing essential care items for children in need. 

As a way to give back around the holidays, nearly 30 employees from the Dover Corporate office volunteered at Cradles to Crayons in Chicago. Founded in 2002, Cradles to Crayons is a non-profit organization that provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive - at home, at school and at play. 

The Dover team members helped to put together 250 everyday essential care packages so that they were ready for distribution to children in need that live in the Chicagoland area. Throughout the day, volunteers inspected, sorted and packaged donations, which will provide children with items they need most.

Additionally, a check on behalf of the Dover Foundation was presented for $1,500 to Cradles to Crayons after the event.

The group plans to continue the tradition of volunteerism in the future.
