Dwyer Plumbing recently sponsored a hole at St. Mary’s Golf Tournement, in support of St. Mary’s Catholic School in Alexandria. A good customer asked for support; St. Mary’s parishoners have been good to Dwyer businesses, so we decided it was worth it. None of our management plays golf, so we let one of our employees and a few vendors play on behalf of us. The first match was rescheduled due to rain, and the makeup date turned out to be perfect. Everyone had a great time, and the school raised some money too. Perhaps I’ll learn to play some golf so I can go next year.
Dwyer Plumbing has been serving the Catholic and United Methodist churches, as well as many other denominations for decades. A year ago, Dan Cochran, our plumbing manager and company president, even served as an expert witness for free for an Anglican church in the area after another plumbing company did some shoddy work. We like to think that our service to the region’s churches is evidence of our ethical business practices and exemplar service. Churches are about community; Dwyer is devoted to Alexandria and the surrounding cities.
If you are a customer and your local organization is looking for support and will allow us to have a presence in body or logo, please contact me, Nathaniel. I can’t promise we’ll always support your cause because there are so many worthy one, but we do consider all opportunities to better the community.
