Data Dimensions celebrates 'Christmas in July' for veterans

Data Dimensions celebrates ‘Christmas in July’ for veterans
As part of its continuing commitment to veterans, Data Dimensions recently held a “Christmas in July” donation drive, collecting items and money for veterans’ organizations in the cities where the company is located.

Team members at all Data Dimensions facilities, including those in Janesville and Madison WI.; Clinton, IA; Mt. Sterling, KY, and Lake Mary, FL; donated items specifically requested by local veterans groups. These included bedding, towels, socks, toiletries, combs, T-shirts, rain ponchos, plastic hangers, electric power strips and other items to make veterans’ lives easier.

Data Dimensions also donated a large bag of yarn to Sgt. P Lapghan’s for Veterans, which provides hand-made crocheted and knit lapghans for area veterans. (For more information about the organization, its mission and how you can help, go to the website sgtpslapghans.org.)

In addition, a sale of new clothing, jackets and other apparel in Janesville resulted in $1,000 being given to help the veterans served by Rock Valley Community Programs in Wisconsin.

Data Dimensions continues to collect clothes, boots and other items during the holiday season and winter months, but realized that many veterans organizations are often forgotten during the summer months, even though items – and help – are still needed. The collected items were delivered to organizations in late July, which was the reason for scheduling a donation drive in the summer.

Data Dimensions has a long-standing connection to veterans. Since 2012, the company has provided document-conversion services for the U.S. Departments of Veterans Affairs, converting veterans’ records and claims forms into electronic files. This accelerates the processing of veterans’ disability claims, getting them the help they need more quickly and efficiently.
