Helping our Local Community

VENTURA, California, October 10, 2018 – Dow-Key Microwave, part of the Microwave Products Group and Dover Corporation (NYSE: DOV), is committed to corporate social responsibility by helping our local communities impacted by homelessness. Habitat for Humanity of Ventura County is nearing the finish line on construction of 6 affordable homes in the La Colonia area of Oxnard. To help with some of the final touches, 15 employees from Dow-Key Microwave traded their time on a Saturday morning to help plant and complete landscaping on these six homes.

“We are excited to announce another milestone in our philanthropic activities related to corporate volunteerism and support for our local community. Giving back is important to our employees and we continue to work to serve the needs of those around us,” said Scott Wightman, Director of Manufacturing.

Dow-Key Microwave looks forward to sharing our continued charities, employee volunteer programs for community projects and collaborations with nonprofit organizations to address social issues.
