Dave Yanke, owner of LINE-X in Sycamore, is proud to serve DeKalb County.
His team is not only focused on offering outstanding products and services, but doing so while being involved in the community and giving back in many ways.
Dave is regularly engaged with the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce and The Salvation Army in DeKalb.
He serves as the Chamber’s executive secretary. As the owner of a small business, he knows the importance of networking with other small business owners and providing support for one another.
“The Chamber gives all DeKalb businesses a collective voice and we can assist each other with challenges that can be common to many types of businesses,” Dave said. “We might have different products or services, but there’s issues related to credit card processing, HR, marketing and so on that can be common thread in business. We try work together to address these and other issues that arise from time to time.”
A motorcycle accident and the prolonged recovery from it sidelined Dave for a period two years ago, so he understands life can present challenges. For years he has helped the DeKalb area Salvation Army collect items for a food drive each February. Last December, Dave and LINE-X helped make the annual “Freezin’ for Food Drive” a success.
“Donations to The Salvation Army and the assistance it provides stays local” he said. “I’ve always understood how unforeseen circumstances can affect an individual or family. Most of the people seeking assistance end up only needing it temporarily. Some even end up coming back and being volunteers. That says a lot about who they are and about our community as a whole.”
