Literally. We don't just design roads and bridges, but in our spare time, we helped build 7 pedestrian bridges in our beautiful hometown of Folsom, CA during the City's annual Community Service Day. We love finding ways to come together outside of work to volunteer.
From cleaning to fixing up our local beaches, creeks trails and roads, we believe in keeping our communities and environment beautiful and safe. Our team takes time out of their busy lives to give back to the communities in which we live and work.
In our hometown of Folsom, CA, Dokken has adopted a portion of Folsom Boulevard to keep clean. Our team gets together regularly to pick up litter alongside the road. We take great pride in participating in activities like this.
Some of our staff have participated in Leadership Programs offered by local cities, like Folsom and Davis. As part of their class projects, our staff have helped build a gazebo for Folsom Food Bank and created way-finding signage on Folsom bike trails. These programs are not only great opportunities to grow as leaders, but to give back to our communities.
Since 2017, Dokken has hosted the annual APWA Music Festival. The event features some of the area's finest public agency & consulting firm musicians. It has raised several thousand dollars to benefit the Sacramento chapter's Education Endowment Fund scholarships.
