DesCor Hosts Inaugural Oktoberfest for Champions for Children

The staff at DesCor joined together to organize an authentic Bavarian Oktoberfest to raise money for the Sierra Forever Families Champions for Children program. Nearly 200 guests enjoyed an evening of good food, beer and music.

“Thank you for creating the incredibly fun Oktoberfest event which raised money to help children in foster care find forever families! Your donation to Sierra Forever Families in support of DesCor Builders' Champions for Children's Team will help us bring hope, love, and happiness to children and youth in foster care as we continue our mission to transform the lives of children in foster care by building and nurturing permanent families.”

“It is because of community support from generous donors, like you, that those children now know the unconditional love of a forever family. The gift of a family is a gift that lasts a lifetime. As you support Sierra through DesCor's Champions for Children's team, you are helping to raise needed funds used to find permanency for a child. I hope you take pride in the role you are playing in helping a waiting child's dream of family come true. Thank you again for your support.”

“We are very grateful to everyone at DesCor who made this such a premier event!" Bobby Cobbs, CFRE, Development and Public Relations Officer, Sierra Forever Families.”

DesCor Teams with Dignity Health and Rebuilding Together

DesCor, Dignity Health and Rebuilding Together, along with many local subcontractors and volunteers, are teaming up to make major home repairs desperately needed (essentially a gut and rebuild) for a local Sacramento family. The entire team, collectively, will make donations to cover the cost of materials and supplies needed for the entire project.

“Our goal is to provide a house that Mr. Townsend can call a home, with a safe, healthy and comfortable environment. We are excited about our team collaboration and giving back to a family who has given so much to their community." Brad Des Jardin, President, DesCor Builders.”

Rebuilding Together Sacramento is a not-for-profit organization that preserves affordable housing and creates safe, healthy and efficient homes. Their vision is that all homeowners, particularly low-income seniors, live independently in comfort and safety in their own home. They accomplish their mission through home repairs and modifications on existing homes performed by volunteers.

DesCor Helps Transform Midtown Cafeteria into Urban Lounge for Teens

The Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency donated an amazing space for this youth inspired project, developed by The VIBE Foundation. DesCor provided demolition and carpentry work as well as oversaw the construction, teaming with many local area subcontractors, to transform the 2,630 SF interior space into a safe, welcoming public spot for teens. Located in the heart of midtown, this teen-operated center offers teens a safe, relevant, and alternative environment to socialize, connect to community resources, seek and secure employment, learn and grow. The VIBE Foundation is a non-profit organization founded for youth, by youth. DesCor, our subcontractors and friends of the VIBE Foundation donated "in kind" labor, material, equipment as well as monetary donations to this worthy project.
