As part of Dudnyk’s ongoing efforts to pay it forward, the company supports a variety of philanthropic initiatives across North America. These are a sample of the nonprofit organizations that Dudnyk is partnering with this year:
is dedicated to mentoring children in the Fort Worth, Texas, Independent School District by helping them develop strong communication talents. Thursday Boys is a place to serve home, school, and community with service projects and “hands on” involvement. The approximately 500 children who are currently registered completed more than 200 community service projects during the last school year. Ongoing projects benefit the homeless (shelters and camps), the food bank, the elderly and the sick. Dudnyk’s contribution will be used to help children living within the region strengthen their leadership skills through these projects.
, sponsored through The National Children’s Oral Health Foundation ( (NCOHF), believes that every child deserves a healthy smile. Promoting the importance of oral health and its link to overall systemic health, America's ToothFairy supports the delivery of oral health education and care for at-risk children. Dudnyk’s donation will be used to support screenings and fluoride applications for children and young adults.
Each summer, the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House
sends more than 200 children living with cancer to Ronald McDonald Camp in the Poconos for a chance to have fun and connect with kids like them. It's a week of fun and friendship, and freedom from being different. Camp gives these children and their siblings a chance to experience new activities and acquire new skills in a supportive, nurturing environment. It's a time when kids can talk openly about cancer and everybody understands. Dudnyk set a goal to send 3 kids to camp this summer. Employees reached into their pockets and successfully raised enough money to give 6 campers the opportunity to have fun and just "be a kid" for a week.
“We feel that these organizations are beneficial to their communities, and we are proud to be associated with such positive initiatives,” says Dudnyk President Frank X. Powers. “Here at Dudnyk, we believe #culturematters and as part of our core values, we encourage our employees to treat those around them and in their communities with dignity and respect, and to assist those who need a helping hand.”
