"United by good work" is the theme of Dickies’ latest campaign, which champions communities working together.
Alma Backyard Farms, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles, and 11:11 Creative Collective are the three groups featured by the apparel brand.
"We’ve all had a lot of time to reflect and, although the past year hasn't been easy, as a society we’re emerging with a new sense of appreciation," says Denny Bruce, global brand president at Dickies. “At Dickies, we can’t think of a better way to apply that appreciation than by celebrating these communities that are united by good work.”
The workwear brand's campaign is the latest example of how companies are using marketing to showcase community engagement.
