We are not only dedicated to our work, but we work just as hard to improve our community. We take great pride in our employee volunteers and their commitment to community organizations throughout metropolitan Phoenix.
Run the Runway
For the past three years, DWL has participated in Run the Runway located at our recently completed project–Scottsdale Airport. Many members of our team, along with their families ran and walked directly on the airfield runway in the 10k-5k-dash to support Playworks Arizona and Scottsdale Airport. All proceeds benefit Playworks Arizona a nonprofit organization encouraging kids to stay active and build valuable life skills through play.
Since 2007, DWL has participated in the Phoenix CANstruction competition, which showcases colossal structures made entirely out of full cans of food. The creations are displayed as a public art exhibition, and afterwards all food is donated to the St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance. DWL’s commitment alone to this event has provided more than 30,000 can donations to the Food Bank.
SUPPORT SKY HARBOR COALITION
The Support Sky Harbor Coalition, in partnership with the City of Phoenix Neighborhood Services Department, organizes Spring and Fall clean-up days. These events bring hundreds of volunteers together to spruce up neighborhoods west of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Coalition Board member and DWL President Steve Rao, along with DWL staff, regularly participate in these clean-up events.
