Kodiak Building Partners will give back to the communities it serves during this holiday season.
The Denver, Colo.-based collection of pro dealers announced that it will take part in #GivingTuesday, an international day taking place the Tuesday after Thanksgiving that encourages philanthropy and generosity while stepping away from the commercialism of the holidays. Kodiak said that each of its companies and employees created their own charitable projects for #GivingTuesday.
The organizations that will benefit from Kodiak’s projects include: Toys for Tots, St Jude’s Children’s Research Center, New England Home for Little Wanderers, Laredo School of Contemporary Dance Pre-Professional Program, Caney Creek Conservation Foundation, Coastal Bend Food Bank Weavers of Love, St. Vincent de Paul Society at St Cecilia Catholic Church, Christ’s Kitchen, Homes for Displaced Marlins, Habitat for Humanity, Children’s Health of Dallas, Chester County Futures, Vrain Safe Shelter, the Salvation Army, Denver Rescue Missions, and Detroit Dog Rescue.
“Kodiak Building Partners is very intentional in its culture of giving,” said Steve Swinney, CEO of Kodiak Building Partners. “#GivingTuesday kicks off not only the traditional charitable season, but within our companies, service projects are mapped for all of 2018. As all of our companies are locally driven, we choose to give back to those communities.
“When we are successful, everyone should benefit. We like to ‘do well, so that we may do good.’ A side benefit of our giving projects is the camaraderie that is cultivated among employees and deeper employee engagement,” Swinney said.
Kodiak operates 53 locations in Texas, Florida, Arizona, Colorado, Michigan, Delaware, Maryland, and Massachusetts.
