CoServ Employees sweat in the heat and donated blood, clothes, food and school supplies this year – all to make the communities we serve a better place.

CoServ hosted two American Red Cross blood drives that were open to the public but were driven by strong CoServ Employee turnout. Over the years, CoServ has hosted eight blood drives, enough to help more than 1,200 people in life-threatening situations.

“I’m always proud to see my fellow Employees rolling up their sleeves to donate to save lives,” said Walker Sims, CoServ Community Events Specialist.

CoServ also partners with the Texas Ramp Project to build ramps for CoServ Members with mobility issues. Armed with drills, screws and saws, CoServ Employees give up their Saturday to improve mobility for someone.

“It’s hard to quantify the impact these ramps have on the CoServ Members’ lives,” said Conan Tearney, CoServ’s Client Services Manager who leads the ramp efforts. “Many of them are facing surgery and won’t be able to traverse even a few steps. These ramps mean the world to them.”

Through our community partnership with the Frisco RoughRiders, CoServ Employees had a March clothing drive for The Storehouse of Collin County and a supply drive in the lead-up to the new school year that benefited students and teachers.

In April, CoServ Employees collected more than 3,750 pounds of food and more than $1,500 in cash for NTX Community Food Pantry. To encourage participation, CoServ departments competed against each other to bring in the most food per person. Shameless plug for the Communications team who won!

“CoServ Employees have a heart to give back and are generous with their time, energy and money to improve the communities we serve,” said Glen Squibb, Director of Community Engagement.

Thank you, CoServ Employees!
