Serving Our Community & Giving Back
Connection Cares - We Give Back to Community
One of the cornerstone principles of our success is giving back to the communities we serve. From the start of our business until today, tomorrow, and beyond, we understand the value of giving back and supporting local charities/causes. The satisfaction of giving back to the community that has supported our business is a tremendous feeling. Additionally, we hold our own Annual Holiday Drive to generate awareness on a given charity chosen to be the recipient that year. We empower our employees to help organize and run this event which has grown to become a community icon event every year. We truly do care here at Fence & Deck Connection and giving back will always be fundamental to our success!
Giving Back to Warrior Events
Fence & Deck Connection supported Warrior Events at its 2017 Holiday Drive Event, as well as sponsored their float in the Annapolis St Patrick’s Day Parade. Warrior Event’s mission is to provide opportunities for interaction, enjoyment, and camaraderie for our wounded veterans, and to raise awareness and appreciation among the public, as well as giving back to those veterans that served our country.

Fence & Deck Connection supported Wy’s Rides at its Annual Holiday Drive event in December 2017. Wy’s Rides assists hospitalized children by keeping them happy and active during their stay. They retrofit ride-on toys with hitches that allow children who are tethered to an IV pole to get out of their hospital room and go for a safe ride, even when only one caretaker is available. Toys and games were collected at our ‘Christmas in Candyland’ Holiday Drive to go towards a pediatric hospital holiday event. The toys were donated to the Johns Hopkins Snow Flake Village - which is a yearly donation drive for parents of hospitalized children. Parents picked out toys for their hospitalized children, then "Santa Claus" delivered the chosen toys to the patients hospital rooms on Christmas Eve.

The event has grown tremendously over the years and welcomes hundreds of visitors each year. The event is completely FREE and full of activities, food, crafts, and pics with Santa. The company chooses a local charity to be its recipient each year and asks the community to rally in support of that charity through monetary donations, toys, or more specific items relative to that given charity.
