As a privately owned, family run business, we have always identified with supporting the community that we live in and serve. We do many things to lend a hand to those that need that little extra nudge. We’ve donated time, services and goods to community members that have experienced a sudden family loss or aided a non-profit in a pinch.
Through several of our corporate partnerships, we implement ways to make contributions to our society. Recently and once again, we partnered with the Phoenix Suns, Cold Stone Creamery and the wives of Suns players and staff in their annual book drive. Well over 2,000 gently used and new books were collected (in Dircks boxes) and distributed to over a dozen non-profit organizations in metro Phoenix. We don’t do this because it’s part of the contract with the Suns as part of our designation as the “Official Mover of the Phoenix Suns”. In fact, we volunteer the resources to do so because it’s the right thing to do. Rick Dircks, Executive Vice President has always shared the mantra of “working to improve the local community” and he instills this with not only the strategic marketing alliances that we have but it’s become embedded within our employees.
Amor Ministries, a group that organizes home building and rebuilding for those less fortunate in Mexico and Africa, was brought to our attention by Rose Kohl, one of our Moving Coordinators. Rose joined Amor Missions for a recent trip to Tijuana. Dircks and our employees collected funds and made a financial contribution for food and items for the home. We were even able to purchase a water filtration system for the brand new home that was built for a family there. To top that off, Patty Dircks, wife of Dircks President Chip Dircks, handmade four quilts for use in the family’s new home.
These are just some of the many examples that Dircks does to keep our communities moving in the right direction.
