These Hospitality teams help us live out our mission statement, by coming together to experience community and providing the comforts of home.  When you first came to DCC, you may have noticed that someone said hello to you or that there was good, fair trade coffee.  When attending an event to learn more about DCC or our partners, you may have gotten the bonus of some great food.  Whether you can smile and say hi to folks, are a secret barista or enjoy seeing others enjoy a good meal, you could find a place on the hospitality team. Email Lauren Smith for more information about opportunities at Uptown.
