Feeding the Wiregrass

Durden Outdoor Displays, Inc. recently had the opportunity to partner with the Dothan Rescue Mission to help raise awareness of the hunger crisis in the Wiregrass. There is an estimated 500 people in the Wiregrass area without some form of adequate housing, with over 250 of those people residing inside of the city limits of Dothan. The Dothan Rescue Mission is a shelter first formed in 1979, originally started as a men and women’s lodge and a kitchen for the homeless and less fortunate in the city. They offer very successful programs that feed people daily, provide shelter and offer GED and discipleship classes. They also offer computer, job and life skills to help give each individual opportunities that they may otherwise never be afforded. Today, the Dothan Rescue Mission has a 60-bed Men’s Lodge, 25-bed Women’s Lodge and 16-bed Family Lodge along with a chapel and kitchen. A large part of their success is having donors to help make it all come together. Durden Outdoor’s creative team stepped up to plate to help create a campaign encouraging citizens of the Wiregrass to help support and feed the homeless. With three Digital Displays rotating through out the Durden Digital Network, we hope to encourage and grow community support of the Dothan Rescue Mission. If you or your organization would like to volunteer or donate to the Dothan Rescue Mission, please contact Brad Hardy at 334-794-4637.

Durden Outdoor Bryan Pharmacy – 2016 ADDYs Award Winner

Every year AAF Dothan hosts the local American Advertising Awards competition for the best of the best creative in the area to win the coveted ADDY award in their field. This is a great opportunity for advertisers to inspire each other with their great work, and show how much we can accomplish when we work well with our clients. Check out AAF Dothan’s page HERE.

We have a great partnership with one of our long time customers, Bryan Pharmacy, who allows us to make award-winning designs year after year. This year we really put our nose to the grindstone (pun intended) to create their new look, which included Alabama’s largest 3D nose. Check out our BLOG POST on this design to see all the delicious details, including a video of the 3D nose install.

We submitted this design to the wonderful people at AAF Dothan for the local ADDY competition and were ecstatic to win the Bronze in Out-of-Home & Ambient Media: Super-Sized, Extension/Dimensional. (Which is advertising lingo for Billboard With Really Cool Stuff On It). It is always great to get recognition for a job well done, and an award like this only inspires us to work harder next year for the Gold and Best in Show!
