Home // About DaySpring : Ministry Outreach
Our method is business. Our motivation is ministry. Our message is Jesus!
Community involvement and charitable giving are a part of the culture of DaySpring.
Each year, DaySpring supports a local, national and international ministry. These ministries are selected by a team of employees, the Ministry Team. The company matches donations made by employees to these ministries and provides employees with two paid days per year for volunteering at hands-on work projects with the local partners. In addition to providing financial contributions and product contributions to worthwhile needs, the company provides opportunities for employees to give through blood drives, food drives, personal care item drives, candy drives, and toy drives.
"A new command I give you: Love one another.
As I have loved you, so you must love one another."
- JOHN 13:34

DaySpring has supported a Youth Training Center in Guinea-Bissau, Africa. Guinea-Bissau is one of the poorest countries in the world. The donations by DaySpring employees and the company provided funding for a youth center, complete with a pavilion, soccer field, basketball courts, and an educational center. Over 700 children participated in Vacation Bible School at the center. In 2004, ten DaySpring employees went on a mission trip to the youth center. They led classes in English, guitar, gymnastics and painting. They painted several murals on the walls of the youth center and held a music contest for aspiring youth musical groups. The efforts of DaySpring and the love of Jesus are having an impact on the youth and the future of this area of the world.
