December is often a time of year to consider those in need and how to help. At Coblaco, an employee-based committee was charged with researching, nominating, and voting on the charitable organization(s) Coblaco would donate to for 2017.
Seven different non-profits were nominated, based on their services offered and company history. After discussing the benefits of each group and taking a vote, the committee selected Mount St. Vincent’s Foster Home to receive $2,000 and St. Jude Children’s Hospital to receive $1,000.
As for the remaining nominees, Coblaco’s President, Steve Davis, announced that he would match the contribution from any other employees who wished to donate. As a result, Coblaco was able to generate $744 to send to each of the other nominated organizations: Disabled American Veterans Organization, A Precious Child, Susan G Komen Foundation, Children’s Hospital Colorado, and, Crusaders Equestrian Team.
In all, a total of $6,720 was donated to very worthy causes. We are proud of everyone’s efforts towards making this happen!
