Blog: Copier Truths, Myths & Outright Lies

Our search for TRUTH in the office equipment industry uncovers a lot of dirt and a few good stories.  As we pursue solutions that are best for our clients, we often discover industry practices that range from being a disadvantage to simply underhanded.  It would be irresponsible of us to not share these findings with unsuspecting office managers and business executives.  Therefore we have created the Copier Truths, Myths & Outright Lies blog. Occasionally we will throw in a positive post about a DSC client and how we’ve responded to their need. 

Personal Side of Community: More Than a Business

By Bernie Reagan

The Personal Side of Community

My daughter, Abby began volunteering with Capernaum several years ago. She is an occupational therapist and felt called to work with children. Capernaum seemed to offer the best combination of using her gifts and offering her the resources to help children.

Abby came to know the Lord in high school through a Young Life event. The leaders from Young Life who started Capernaum saw a need for kids with disabilities to know more about a life in heaven with God through developing a personal relationship with Jesus.

Rosie's Story: Rosie is a nineteen-year-old girl with Down syndrome; she is minimally verbal. She has been going to Capernaum for five years. Thanks to her time with the wonderful volunteers, Rosie has grown socially and is making friends. She's working at trying to speak more. After one particular trip, her leader, Avery, was able to share more of her faith, and Rosie understood what it meant to know Jesus. As Avery shared, she thought of how it will be for Rosie when the time comes for her to enter heaven. She will no longer be burdened with the seen and unseen constraints that hold her back today. Rosie is filled with joy, thanks to Capernaum, and freely shares that joy when she performs karaoke. 

Abby also shared that they need additional program partners to help about twenty young people with disabilities who will be transitioning beyond the program. Anyone interested in helping these Capernaum students can contact them via email: Thank you for your help, interest, and prayers.

Thank you for being on this journey with us. We look forward to serving you, hearing your stories, and partnering with you to improve the Copier/Office Equipment business and make this world a better place.


I am blessed to be able to share with you this month a ministry I hold dear to my heart—Capernaum. Capernaum, which is part of Young Life, gives kids and young adults with disabilities the chance to have fun, make friends, develop self-esteem, and begin a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Young Life is an international ministry, which was started back in 1941. In 1986 a Young Life staff person saw the need for a branch of Young Life to reach students with special needs in their area so he started what is now called Capernaum in his area in California. Former Young Life leaders Kelly and Jim Tinsley started the Eastern Cincinnati Capernaum group in 2012.
Young Life starts with leaders and friends concerned enough about kids to get to know them on their turf and in their culture, to build bridges and authentic friendships. These relationships don't happen overnight—they take time, patience, trust, and consistency. We believe in the power of presence. Kids' lives are dramatically affected when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God's love with them. Because their leaders believe in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning, and purpose.

More Than a Business

I stand amazed when I think back over the last 50 years that DSC Office Systems has been in existence. Since I became president in 2011, I have been fortunate to meet and work with so many wonderful people. Each day fills me all the more with gratitude as I reflect on why our company exists and whom we serve.

DSC Office Systems is different from not only our competitors but many companies in business today because of our employees and their wonderful attitudes. We are purpose and passion about serving our customers. Being filled with gratitude for our business is woven into the fabric of everyday life at DSC Office Systems. In fact, our mission is:

We aren't the biggest. We are the best at serving our customers.

Moreover, I am most proud of my role as an ambassador for DSC. I catch people doing good and sing the praises of employees and clients alike. In fact, that's what I'd like to share with you today—good news! Each month, we will shine a light on hopeful and informative messages based on what our employees are up to and what DSC is involved in.
