DFW Consulting Group embraces and encourages our team to get involved in the communities they live and work through the DFWCGI Involved program. DFWCGI Involved was created in 2015 as a way of bringing together our team as a force for good in the community. The DFW Metroplex is a big place, and there is plenty of work to be done. DFWCGI Involved is dedicated to turning our shared passion for the community into real results through local projects. We want to empower our team to get involved and create positive, lasting change in the community.
It is with this vision in mind that DFWCGI Involved collaborates with local organizations each quarter to develop a plan that can be implemented by our team to enhance the community. Be it a canned food drive, donating old clothes, or helping out on-site we are always eager to help however we can.
What is DFWCGI Involved? DFWCGI Involved was created in 2015 as a way of bringing together our team as a force for good in the community. Each quarter, our employees get involved in the communities we live and work with the intent of making the world around us, better for those who most need the help. If you or your business is interested in creating your own community outreach program, we are more than willing to share our information with you to help your firm get Involved..
DFWCGI Involved & 7x24 Exchange Scholarship Program
DFWCGI Involved goes beyond our work in the local community to making a difference in our industry through membership and active participation in the Lone Star Chapter of 7x24 Exchange. Over 25 years ago, this organization was created to bring together those who design, build, operate and maintain mission critical enterprises by exchanging and sharing information. DFW Consulting Group is a founding member of the Lone Star Chapter, and Julian Rachman was a leader of the Chapter’s scholarship program. Through the generosity of its members, the Lone Star Chapter has established endowments in the Engineering Schools of Texas A&M University and The University of Texas at Austin. By awarding two scholarships at each university each year, the Chapter hopes to encourage young engineering students to enter the fields of Mission Critical design, construction or operation.
Townsell Elemtary School Supply Drive
Our Community Outreach program, DFWCGI Involved, recently completed a school supply drive for Townsell Elementary.
Townsell Elementary School is part of the Irving school district and has about 900 kids. Most of the students of the school are considered "in poverty". Our employees came through in a big way, by supplying spiral notebooks crayons pens and pencils, notebook paper, glue, and other basic supplies which their families could not provide for the kid’s educational needs. DFWCGI family believes no child should have any learning obstacle due to lack of basic school supplies. We wish all the students at Townsell Elementary school a successful and educational 2016-2017 school year.
Dallas LIFE Clothing Drive
When bidding opened to renovate the basement of the Dallas LIFE building, DFW Consulting Group recognized an opportunity that went beyond engineering drawings. In the last quarter of 2015, we conducted a clothing drive to collect clothes and shoes for men, women, and children.
Dallas LIFE is a nationally acclaimed homeless recovery program, and one of the only shelters in the Metroplex that allows entire families, including the father, to live-in the complex while going through the recovery program. It is also the largest shelter in the Metroplex. Clothing is just one service among many that Dallas LIFE offers, but clothing, especially shoes, are always items in need.
The clothing drive was just a small way to help one of our local community shelters. DFWCGI Involved collected enough clothing and shoes, including business attire, to fill the back of a pickup truck. Donating clothing was one small way to stay connected to the community in which we live and work.
DFWCGI Involved will be starting our next community outreach program soon this quarter.
