Philanthropic involvement was an important principle to Crane Co.’s founder, R.T. Crane, in 1855 and the associates of CP&S in Piqua, OH continue to make it a priority today.
With several employees and customers residing in the Ohio Miami Valley region, CP&S prefers to dedicate service hours and charitable funds in the local community. This year, the months of May and June have provided both opportunistic and tragic events in southwest Ohio that afforded the Company to help Miami Valley in several ways.
The Ohio tornadoes that touched down in late May destroyed several homes and businesses in neighborhoods in the Dayton and Celina areas. CP&S, located just 30 miles north of Dayton, recognized the devastation of this weather event not only due to proximity to their Piqua facilities, but also because several employees and employees’ families reside in affected areas. To support the disaster relief efforts, CP&S (on behalf of The Crane Foundation) presented a $5,000 donation to The American Red Cross.
In June, CP&S’ employees teamed up with Champaign County’s chapter of Habitat for Humanity (HFHCCO) to assist with a new house build. Habitat for Humanity is a true world leader in addressing the issues of impoverished housing. HFHCCO has constructed 10 homes since 2007 in Champaign County alone. CP&S sent 31 employees to the Urbana, Ohio jobsite the week of June 10th devoting 217 workhours installing roofing, building a front porch, and other various construction projects.
While the last few weeks were unusually busy with benevolent efforts, CP&S’ employees are no strangers to community outreach. In 2018, their employees volunteered over 900 hours to various organizations including The Bethany Center-Piqua, Ohio, The Salvation Army Summer Feeding Program-Piqua, Ohio, and Elizabeth’s New Life Center-Sidney, Ohio. In addition to service hours, CP&S also presented checks to several local agencies totaling $60,000.
With two manufacturing and office locations in Piqua, Ohio, CP&S’ employees are thankful for the opportunities to directly serve and make an impact in the local community. Philanthropic involvement continues to be a pillar of the culture at CP&S and a practice that gives employees a sense of pride.
