DENTCO’s Annual Spirit Week Gives Back
DEWITT, Mich. (Aug. 8, 2019)- Maintaining an ongoing tradition, the DENTCO® team recently celebrated their annual summer spirit week at the company’s headquarters. Activities and events focused on building camaraderie as well as nurturing the company’s sense of community.
The theme of DENTCO’s spirit week this year was “Oscar Week.” Resembling the elegance of the Academy Awards, the office was decorated with stars, a Hollywood backdrop as well as photographs of celebrities and classic movie references. The hallways of the office space were even lined with red carpet.
“With a team full of incredibly creative individuals, it is difficult not to look forward to this event year after year. Our energy and enthusiasm continues to grow as our company expands and we develop new relationships,” said DENTCO President Scott Milnes.
From delicious barbeques to collaborative team building exercises and attending a Lansing Ignite soccer game, the week was filled with engaging and memorable festivities for all to enjoy. The week concluded with the presentation of the “Denty Awards,” where different members of the DENTCO team were recognized for their unique and valuable contributions to the company’s culture and overall operation.
“Each team member is unique and presents their own strengths, which truly makes DENTCO special. Our team building activities focus on building lasting workplace relationships and enhanced communication, which ultimately has made DENTCO an incredibly enjoyable place to work,” said Sales Administrator Christine Shipps.
This year, DENTCO partnered with The House of Promise to raise awareness and donations. The House of Promise is a nonprofit organization founded to rescue victims of human sex trafficking and empower them to heal. Through education and support, The House of Promise aims to restore the lives of those who have suffered incomprehensible abuse and guide them on a journey to a brighter tomorrow.
Shari Montgomery, founder of The House of Promise, visited the DENTCO office to speak about her experience working with victims of sexual exploitation and providing refuge to help them cope with the trauma they have endured. Montgomery educated the DENTCO team about human trafficking’s prevalence within the United States, warning signs as well as additional measures to combat the horrors of such crimes.
“Giving back to the community is a quintessential aspect of our mission at DENTCO. We are committed to bringing positive change and safety to our world and will continue to show compassion and support to organizations in need,” said National Sales Director Teresa Phelps.
As a company, the team raised $4,252 in donations for The House of Promise. In September, the DENTCO team will be volunteering at the House of Promise to paint, replace carpet, and perform grounds work.
