In 2010, PDQ Manufacturing, Inc., the industry-leading manufacturer of in-bay automatic vehicle wash systems, created a new charitable donations policy for its employees. This policy allocates money to each employee with those funds able to be donated to charities on their behalf. As part of the policy, PDQ makes periodic donations to local charitable organizations. In June, PDQ made a $5,000 donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Wisconsin. That amount was matched by the Dover Foundation. The Dover Foundation was founded in 2011 as a way to support not-for-profit organizations, causes and/or projects that benefit the Dover Corporation and its operating companies. PDQ Manufacturing is a member of Dover’s Engineered Systems™ market platform.

The combined $10,000 donated by PDQ and the Dover Foundation helped make the wishes of two ill Wisconsin teenagers come true:

• Brayden, a 16-year-old from Green Bay with severe epilepsy, experienced his wish of traveling to Hawaii with his family
• Isabella, a 14-year-old from De Pere suffering from lung disease as a result of Cystic Fibrosis, will go on a Disney Cruise with her family

To recognize the contributions that PDQ and the Dover Foundation have made to this worthwhile cause, Kris Teofilo, Regional Director for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Wisconsin, attended PDQ’s All Employee Meeting on June 21 to thank the company and its employees for their generous contribution.

“Thank you for helping give local children with life-threatening medical conditions hope, strength and joy,” Teofilo wrote in a letter to PDQ President Mike Savignac and Human Resources Manager Becky Davies on June 14. “Make-A-Wish Wisconsin has been working with caring individuals like you all over the state since 1984 to help children and their families during one of the most challenging times of life. We want to thank you for your heart-felt commitment to the Make-A-Wish mission.”
