Being able to support genuinely worthwhile organizations and giving back to the community is a priority for the Diesel Direct team. One of these organizations that Diesel Direct is committed to is a Boston based foundation called The Home for Little Wanderers. The organization provides programs and services for children in need including adoption, foster care, residential care, and clinical support. In their own words (and motto), “We never give up on children. And we don’t let children give up on themselves.”
This past May, Diesel Direct helped sponsor the annual Voices & Visions fundraiser event that The Home organized at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston. Children that had received care from The Home created works of poetry and art based on the theme “I Dream a World”. These beautiful creations were exhibited alongside works from recognized artists and additionally there was a silent auction.
