Community

In every community there is work to be done. In every nation, there are wounds to heal. In every heart there is the power to do it.

Marianne Williamson

The Black Dot Way

Community support is a great way to help others in the cities and towns where our employees work and live. Black Dot maintains a responsibility to help those who are less fortunate and contribute to the common good.

Throughout each year, Black Dot partners with several nationally established non-profit organizations as well as schools, local community organizations and small grass-roots charities. From volunteering to charitable giving, part of our commitment is to give back whenever we can. Explore the following sections to see how our employees are making a difference.

Dots in Action

Currently, Black Dot supports Fighting For Me, a program committed to offering FREE counseling to anyone affected by sexual abuse.

In the past, Black Dot has supported numerous charities such as Mary’s Shelter, a local charitable organization providing loving residential care and education for pregnant minors either homeless or otherwise in crisis.

Through fundraising events, personal donations and volunteering, Black Dot employees were able to transform two bedrooms and a bathroom through an extreme makeover tailored to each girl’s personal taste. In one day, employees were able to paint, refinish furniture and redecorate each room.

We started the day off with enthusiasm and lots of energy. By the afternoon we had much left to do and I started to wonder if we had bitten off more than we could chew. We finished that evening exhausted and aching. Upon realizing I had forgotten one of my tools, I returned to the house. As I approached the girl’s rooms I saw both girls on their beds crying. It was humbling to see the difference one small act of kindness had done for these courageous young girls.
