Energy and Synergy are two of my favorite words, but maybe Synergy is my most favorite. Energy can be supplied by an individual, but it takes more than one person or company to create true synergy.
I hosted a gathering of energetic community and business leaders from our region recently to discuss new and better ways to give back to the community. With their input and creativity, Dixon’s commitment to community and education programs was inspired to a whole new level. I’ve been pondering the synergy, energy and success of that meeting and have come away with the conclusion that we are definitely on the right track.
For example, Dixon’s new school backpack program received resounding endorsements around the table. It’s a new concept, but one that is catching on fast. Instead of appealing to stores and individuals to invest countless hours to donate supplies, Dixon assembles appropriate backpack supplies for corporate sponsorship. We even include the backpacks! These sturdy backpacks are pre-assembled with the most popular and teacher-tested supplies on the market (Dixon, Prang and Lyra, of course). Corporations can have the personalized corporate-branded backpacks delivered directly to the intended schools. We’re also happy to set up a presentation event complete with photographer to showcase the corporation’s commitment to education excellence.
Later on, we cheered on the Orlando Magic and relaxed after a hard day’s work. Check out the pictures from our fun and productive event below.
