Give Back

Dawson Company Gives Back

At Dawson Company, giving back to the community isn’t a public relations statement, but a rallying cry for our team. We are committed to giving back to the communities we serve.

The organizations we support may vary from time to time. We are always looking for those in need, to find places where our physical and financial contributions can make a difference.

When you become a member of the Dawson Company business community, your direct purchases from Dawson Company will support these organizations. 

Whether it’s cleaning up the beaches, providing clean water to drink, food for hungry children, or a warm place to sleep, every project has a direct impact on the communities we serve. 

We thank you for the opportunity to make a difference in your business and the world.

Below is just the beginning. Come back often to learn more about how we are giving back.

Walking for Water

In partnership with Xylem Watermark, Dawson Company participated in taking steps to help those in need of clean, safe drinking water.

During the month of June 2023, Xylem Watermark hosted its “Walk for Water” Team Challenge, bringing together 50 dedicated teams, including Dawson Company, for a shared cause. The “Dawson Co Walkers” as a team took an astounding 5,128,727 steps, earning them a well-deserved 2nd place amongst all of the competing teams.

Collectively, the participating teams raised over $16,200, directly contributing to the Chris Long Waterboy’s Foundation’s mission to ensure access to clean drinking water for one million people across the globe. Together, we connected with other CBS channel partners and Xylem employees, got some exercise while helping the community, and came together as a team encouraging one another every step of the way.

Pomona Valley Food Bank Donations

At Dawson Company, the spirit of giving is at the heart of our holiday traditions. Each year, we rally together to collect canned foods and dry goods for the Pomona Valley Food Bank, extending a helping hand to those in
our community who may be facing tough times. This year has been no exception, and we are grateful to share the success of our ongoing initiatives by making these worth-while donations.


In the true spirit of community and compassion, we filled up our first giant box with essential supplies, a tangible testament to the generosity of the Dawson family. This initial delivery, was a moment of joy and reflection as we played a small part in bringing relief to those who need it most. As we embrace the slogan “Hunger has no Holidays” Dawson Company is dedicated to continuing our efforts and we will persist in collecting food donations to create yet another delivery for those experiencing hunger.

Thank you to everyone at Dawson Company who has made this initiative a success. Your kindness and generosity is the reason we can make a difference in the lives of others. For more information please visit :

Maui Wildfire Donations

On August 8, 2023, the tight-knit island community of West Maui experienced a devastating wildfire that brought about an immense loss of life, homes, cultural sites, and local businesses. With FEMA estimating that 2,170 acres were consumed by the flames and over 2,200 structures suffered damage or were entirely destroyed, the impact of this disaster has been felt island-wide. It was in the face of this tragedy that Dawson Company stepped forward to offer a helping hand. Dawson Company made a generous donation of $5,000.00 to the Maui Food Bank and encouraged employees to also donate. This contribution aimed to provide immediate relief to those in need by providing food to those affected by the wildfires.


The Maui Food Bank, was able to step up to the challenge and distribute an impressive 250,000 pounds of fresh produce and 1.3 million pounds of food to those adversely affected by the disaster to date. Even in the face of adversity, we have the capacity to come together and make a meaningful difference in the lives of those in need. If you wish to donate as well, please consider visiting:

Dawson Company & Xylem (Bell & Gossett)
Team up to Fight COVID-19 and Support our Front-Line Workers

Xylem, the parent company of Bell & Gossett, is a leading technology company committed to “solving water” by creating innovative and smart technology solutions to meet the world’s water, wastewater, and energy needs. Xylem is not only committed to innovation in the water industry, but is also dedicated to giving back to the community here in the USA and globally through Watermark, its corporate responsibility program.

Watermark works with nonprofit partners on sustainable development projects that provide education and protect safe water resources for communities around the world. Employees and stakeholders are encouraged to take action to address global water challenges by volunteering their time, providing pro-bono skilled expertise, donating in-kind technology and product, and making corporate–matched monetary donations.

Recently Xylem dedicated itself to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic by diverting manufacturing capability to produce protective face shields for front-line workers. In order to meet the need at the local level, Xylem reached out to its representative network to distribute the face shields.

Dawson Company took this opportunity to support our local front-line workers and contacted multiple organizations to distribute the face shields. In all, over 5,200 face shields were donated.

Thank you to front-line workers for your relentless and unwavering effort to protect our community and fight this horrible pandemic. Your steadfast courage and commitment to your profession is to be admired, and we commend you!

Megan’s Wings Program Partner Participation

The mission of Megan’s Wings is to improve the care and quality of life for children with cancer by providing financial and emotional support to their family.

Our vision is to create a community where no family faces the financial and emotional burdens of childhood cancer alone.

We carry out our mission by supporting families through our programs:

  • Patient Aid
  • Gas Assistance
  • Monthly Assistance
  • Adopt a Family
  • Birthday Club
  • Mentor Support

Megan’s Wings Corporate Partnership

If you own a business or work for a big company that might be interested in partnering with Megan’s Wings to help the most vulnerable childhood cancer families thrive, we are looking for you. Due to fundraising event disruptions the last two years, we have shifted away from Event Sponsorships to Program Partnerships so that we can securely fund our programs and keep them running smoothly.

Program partners commit to make a one-time or annual donation to Megan’s Wings that directly funds our Financial Aid and Support Service Programs. We want families affected by pediatric cancer to know they can count on the financial and emotional support that Megan’s Wings provides, and we can do this better with solid partnerships that are independent of events.

We are looking for businesses willing to make a commitment to Megan’s Wings in lieu of attending an event, so our Patient Aid, Monthly Aid, Gas Assistance, Birthday Club, and Mentor Connection Programs can continue providing the critical services families of children with cancer depend on.
