Dow Development Laboratories was given the Petaluma Large Business of the Year award at the 2019 Petaluma Community Awards of Excellence. The award honors Dow’s support of local nonprofits.
Dow encourages its 45 employees to participate in Petaluma People Services Center’s 1,000 Bowls fundraiser, which support programs that bring healthy meals to the community’s most vulnerable residents. The company also participates in PPSC’s Rock ‘N’ Bowl fundraiser and Brews and Bites for the Bounty Farm, an annual event at Lagunitas.
“We want to be a business that is concerned about community,” said founder Debra Dow. “We do show up, that’s important. We want to be known as a good company and a caring supporter of what’s going on here.”
