Dover Corporation believes strongly in education. As a Downers Grove-based global manufacturer that delivers innovative equipment and components, specialty systems, and support services all over the world, Dover believes particularly strongly in STEM-related instruction.
The Chicago Wolves share Dover’s commitment to learning, which inspired their partnership to create Dover Youth Education Day on Sunday, Feb. 12, at Allstate Arena.
Dover has donated 500 tickets to local youth education organizations and STEM groups for the Wolves’ 3 p.m. game versus San Antonio on Feb. 12. Dover also plans to have a large number of employees and their families in attendance.
“Dover is delighted to team up with the Chicago Wolves in a joint effort to support STEM-related organizations,” said Adrian Sakowicz, Vice President of Communications at Dover. “It will be rewarding to experience the game with those that are passionate and involved in propelling STEM education.”
“The Wolves appreciate Dover’s philosophy toward education and we share a similar commitment,” said Wolves president Mike Gordon. “We are thrilled to be able to be a part of a recognition day for kids who participate in STEM-related groups and other education-oriented organizations.”
Dover’s philanthropic arm, the Dover Foundation, focuses on education with an emphasis on enriching science and technology experiences for students.
The Foundation also assists Dover’s operating companies and their employees in their efforts to become active members in the communities in which they operate by supporting not-for-profit organizations, causes and/or projects that benefit the community, the environment, and education.
