Our employees feel strongly about their commitment to our Cape Cod community and seek ways to give back. We feel a responsibility to assist our neighbors whenever we can, and we always come away feeling that we’ve benefited as a result.
As an employer, The Coop provides several ways that employees can volunteer.
We annually pay a full day of work to any employee that volunteers for the United Way Day of Caring. In the past, we’ve participated in clean up days for the Boys & Girls Club of Cape Cod in Mashpee, built new picnic tables and archery field and the YMCA of Cape Cod in Barnstable, and planted in the spring at Cape Abilities Farm in Dennis.
Employees are able to sign up and, using the funds raised through our Paying It Forward program, shop for the most vulnerable members in our community through the Salvation Army’s Dress a Live Doll, and Toys for Tots Stuff-a-Bus.
Every month, dozens of employees deliver food to our home-bound seniors through the Bank’s partnership with Meals on Wheels.
Whether it’s passing out water during a road race, handing out prizes and giveaways at a music festival, or staffing a table at a fundraiser, sponsorships through our Corporate Giving allows our employees to volunteer at many events across the Cape.
Beyond volunteer opportunities provided through the Bank, our colleagues freely give of their own time by serving on boards and committees of local non-profits, helping at the schools their kids attend, donating to fundraisers, and offering their unique talents to help their neighbors and friends.
We’re proud of the team at The Coop! Please allow us to brag by sharing a few of the organizations that have benefitted from our colleagues’ volunteerism:
