Charity work is near and dear to our hearts here at Sassafras and today we wanted to share a fun award that we recently had the honor of receiving from the Down Syndrome Guild of Greater Kansas City (DSG). Sassafras has supported this organization for a number of years, donating our project management and creative talents to help DSG brand, market, and promote their mission to the Kansas City community.
Beyond contributing our services, several of our team members attend DSG functions regularly, including the Annual Wine Auction, The Step Up Walk and the Golf Tournament.
We love this organization and consider it an honor to have been selected as DSG’s Corporate Volunteer Partner of the Year for 2018! DGS Executive Director Jason Drummond recently wrote to us and said: “You guys really deserve this honor for all that you have done for our organization.”
Geoff and Jenny accepted the award at DSG’s holiday party this past weekend. We look forward to a future of partnering together to help DSG spread awareness and support for the Down syndrome community in Kansas City.
Be sure to check out their website to learn more about DSG.

We are revamping it for 2019 and have some great things in store. For now, thanks to DSG for this great honor and be on the lookout for future charity-related updates coming soon!
