Every home is different. Each one has its own needs and maintenance requirements. In that way, homes are much like communities. A community is healthy when there are people willing to attend to its needs. Dwayne Boggs, owner of Boggs Inspection Services, understands home maintenance as much as anyone. He routinely inspects houses, looking for the places where additional attention is needed. Dwayne also cares about his community, and he knows that although it is a healthy one, there are plenty of places where he and others can help out, making it just a little bit better.
Dwayne cares greatly about his employees and their families. He and the rest of the team at Boggs Inspection Services also have a great rapport with their customers. But Dwayne knows that he can do more, which is why he invests in the community, giving to charitable organizations that benefit many people in the area.
One organization Dwayne is fond of is The Boys and Girls Club of Thurston County. Serving thousands of children around the county, the Boys and Girls Club has been helping kids locally for 17 years. The organization’s impact is felt by countless families with elementary and middle school aged children. The Boys and Girls Club of Thurston County encourages children to participate in healthy physical activity, fosters appreciation for STEM activities for boys and girls, and promotes volunteerism among its members.
In May, Boggs Inspection Services raised over $2,000 when they participated in the Boys and Girls Club Foundation for the Future Breakfast and Fundraiser. Held at Saint Martin’s University, the fundraiser brought community donors together with current Boys and Girls Club members and alumni to interact and share a delicious breakfast.
Another of Dwayne’s favorite organizations to contribute to is the Washington Autism Alliance & Advocacy (WAAA). Their mission is a simple one: to help children and adults that are affected by autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disorders to thrive and have opportunities to be included within their society. The WAAA helps many families every year. Working to bridge the gap between families and health care policies, they ensure that everyone they serve receives the support and treatment that they need, regardless of income. This is why the donations from Boggs Inspection Services are so important.
“Organizations like Boggs Inspection Services are the lifeblood of what we do every day,” says Hailey Walker, community engagement and special events coordinator for WAAA. “We exist to remove barriers to timely access to evidence-based treatment, effective education programs, and supports for children and adults statewide.” In April, Boggs Inspection Services gave $5 from every inspection they completed to WAAA. In total, they were able to donate $785, which will help a number of families in the area. “Without community members like the team at Boggs, we couldn’t help as many wonderful parents and families as we do,” explains Hailey.
“Giving back to the community is very important to Dwayne, especially anything to do with children,” says Heather Derrick, marketing manager for Boggs Inspection Services. Dwayne is passionate about being involved with the community because his company is in it for the long haul. He has inspected homes in the area for the last 14 years, and in that time, he has helped strengthen the community from within.
Boggs inspection Services wants you to know that anyone can help these and many other organizations within the community. Monetary gifts large and small add up to make a big impact, and for those who can’t donate funds, consider opportunities to volunteer time.
“Every day we hear about a story where a family is in dire need of our help, and because of community support we can work with them for a better life than they would have had otherwise,” says Hailey.
