This year, we’re excited to renew our Dalton Cares initiative. For more than 20 years, the Dalton Agency has supported Northeast Florida’s nonprofit community through our time, talent and resources. Last year, First Coast No More Homeless Pets was our big Dalton Cares beneficiary, based on public votes out of nine selected nonprofits.
This year, we’d like your help in recognizing what deserving organizations we should promote through Dalton Cares.
“Nonprofits are increasingly being challenged to do more with less,” said Jim Dalton, president and chief executive officer of Dalton Agency, “Dalton Cares is our way of showing that we value the work they do in our community, and it allows us the opportunity to give our time and talents to raise awareness of these organizations and their missions. Our entire company is excited to once again support this community effort.”
Here’s how Dalton Cares works.
The Dalton Agency’s creative teams will design promotional posters for nine selected nonprofit organizations, intended to raise awareness of their charitable work.
The posters will be displayed in the windows of our downtown Jacksonville office as well as at DaltonCares.com and our Facebook page. We will promote them all through our resources. The public will vote for their favorite posters, and the winning organization will receive a donation of $1,000. And there might be some other surprises along the way:)
Every charity selected will also be presented with their artwork—valued at $5,000—to use in any way they wish.
We will select nine finalists from all nominated organizations and will announce the finalists on February 20. Following the public voting, which starts on February 27, the winner will be announced on May 14.

McDonald’s Columbia partners with Toys for Tots to Spread Joy of Holidays
This holiday season, McDonald’s of Columbia teamed up with ABC Columbia to partner with our local Marines in their Toys for Tots toy drive. In a little over two weeks, our restaurants were able to raise over 1,000 toys, and provide the drive with increased visibility.
This year’s campaign helped over 6,500 children in the Midlands, a 40% increase over last year. With over 1 million children living in poverty in our state, McDonald’s was excited to be able to spread some joy to those that are living in our area.
“The most rewarding part of this is seeing the children light up when you deliver their toys,” said Lloyd Sorrell, Toys for Tots Coordinator and Columbia Marine. Our favorite part? That the Marines are able to provide not only a toy, but a role model of patriotism, physical fitness, grooming, discipline, and moral character.
Every child deserves a little Holiday, and McDonald’s is honored to have been apart of delivering the message of hope to many Midlands children this year.
