Giving back to the community is an important priority to us.
DRYCO is committed to giving back to the Greater Bay Area community—over the years we have averaged more than four community projects a year. Our employees have the same spirit, which extends not only into the local communities where they live but also across borders into other countries. Take a moment and see the community projects that DRYCO has been involved with this past year in 2011. So far in 2012 we have volunteered and supported over 5 projects, and still have a few more planned. Find out more about the organization at www.goodtidings.org.
Good Tidings Foundation
The Good Tidings Foundation is one of DRYCO’s key partners in helping out our community; they support The Bay Area youth in numerous ways by partnering with the local sports teams to design, fund and build youth athletic facilities.
