Defense Electronics Manufacturer Celebrates Holiday Season by Giving Back to Community
December 19, 2012 - Fremont, Calif. - dB Control, a manufacturer of reliable, high-powered microwave amplifiers, radar/electronic countermeasure (ECM) transmitters and power supplies, participated in numerous community outreach projects this year. Several of the company’s corporate social initiatives were featured in a recent Fremont Business Review article written by dB Control’s Human Resources Generalist Maricela Castro. The company’s philanthropic ventures include:
- American Cancer Society: participated in a 5K Making Strides Against Breast Cancer charity walk to raise funds for cancer research, support and medical care
- Alameda County Community Food Bank: collected non-perishable food for the less fortunate
- Viola Blythe Community Service Center: organized a toy drive to support local children in need (Newark, Calif.)
- U.S. Army: provided Frisbees (originally developed as tradeshow giveaways) for troops to use as water dishes for pets, or for recreational fun
- Kennedy High School: donated printer toner as part of a recycling fundraiser (Fremont, Calif.)
“When a company is successful, it’s easy to get caught up in day-to-day activities. Fortunately, everyone at dB Control is committed to sharing our success with our community. We don’t give back because we have to. We give back because it’s the right thing to do,” said dB Control Director of Marketing Steven Olson.
