Cooper Cares Program
Once every quarter, the Cooper Cares program dedicates our people, our equipment and our time to an organization, charity or fundraising event. In 2018, our Cooper Cares program was brought to life to deliver a little extra kindness to our community. It all started when our Calgary team decided to create a program to give back and help those in need. Whether that’s for a food drive, clothing drive, soup kitchen, volunteering event – you name it, we’re there and ready to help. During our last quarter this year, Cooper partnered with Project Warmth to make sure everyone in our community is warm this winter. Our Calgary branches had a drop-off bin to collect warm clothing items that were distributed across their communities to those in need. The program introduced a little friendly competition to get everyone involved by holding a clothing drive competition on four major construction sites in Calgary. The site that collects the largest amount of clothing in the basket of a Cooper aerial lift was awarded the Cooper Cares Trophy as a token of appreciation. As a result, we have collected a generous number of items from coats, boots, toques, and gloves, to sleeping bags and blankets! The Cooper Care program shows how working together to give back to the community is not only fun and rewarding but also helps provide support to those in need.
