Casey Smith, one of DALKO Resources Sales Representatives, recently got his first hair cut in five years. Tangled Up in Sharon, PA, trimmed 22 inches off of Casey’s mane. The reason for his boycott of hair stylists?…so he could donate his locks to Wigs for Kids. This 30 year old non-profit organization has been making hair replacement systems for children and young adults who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy, radiation, Alopecia, burns, and other medical issues. There is never a cost to the families. The children who receive these hair replacements can resume a “normal” active lifestyle. They can participate in sports, dance, swimming, and any other extracurricular activity of their choice. Most importantly, it restores the child’s self-esteem and confidence. Way to go Casey!

DALKO is pleased to announce that we recently made some enhancements to our MySource system that will improve the speed and efficiency, as well as give us more flexibility to add new features. The new version will become live Monday April 15th.
The system also has a new smart search feature for the origin and destination locations when booking a shipment. This new feature will allow you to quickly search through all saved locations using any details that were saved with the location. The more data that is entered, the more the system will refine the search. For instance, a location could be found using the location name, city, contact name, phone number, etc. If one or more of these items are combined, the system will further filter through the saved locations using all details entered. # DalkoMySource, #DalkoDiffernce
