Dirt Dog and LACrafts teamed up to setup a charity fundraiser on December 20th, 2013 in Commerce, CA for victims of the tragic Typhoon Haiyan. LACrafts, led by Shipping Manager Richard Martinez, did the leg work of visiting local neighboring business of LACrafts in Commerce and Montebello and asked them to come join us for a free lunch catered by Dirt Dog. We also asked for donations if possible, but it was not necessary. We are happy to say that the businesses and their staff did come out to support us and this important cause. We were able to raise almost $1,000 for the International Medical Corps., which is currently doing great relief work in the Philippines. We want to thank all those who came to our event. We are humbled by your generosity and happy to see Commerce and Montebello business coming together to help save lives. Thank you!

*A special thanks to Nathan's Famous for providing the hot dogs we used at this event.*
