DR & Associates Marketing and Communications Agency
DR & Associates believes in giving back to the community at large which is one of the major differences in our firm vs those that only seek to improve their bottom line. We are committed to improving not only the lives of our clients by assisting them in growing their profits, but also the community at large.
Our philanthropic activities allow us to apply our skills to come together to improve the lives of individuals and families. These activities and the experience of serving others helps to enrich our employees and solidifies our beliefs and core values.
The activities that our firm participates in cover a wide-variety of demographics and communities, including segments such as at-risk teens, rising entrepreneurs, domestic violence victims, the homeless population, and more.
DR & Associates Community Engagement efforts are primarily focused on women and children empowerment, food programs, and volunteering with non-profit organizations serving the Greater Mid-South and beyond.
In 2020, our firm provided over 75 meals to families for Thanksgiving and Christmas. In addition, we provided no-cost business training classes and seminars to entrepreneurs through organizations such as Memphis Light Gas and Water.
In 2021, we sponsored 15 websites for culinary entrepreneurs. Our firm also provided over 50 meals to families for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
In 2022, we selected Code Crew as our selected non-profit organization to receive a portion of our overall company profits. This organization mentor’s underrepresented youth to be tech innovators and leaders through practical, hands-on computer science education programs throughout Memphis. Our team will be presenting a check to them in late-January of 2023.
