Crane Pumps Lends a Hand in the Miami Valley

Web Admin CranePumps News/Events

Philanthropic involvement was an important principle to Crane Co.’s founder, R.T. Crane, in 1855 and the associates of Crane Pumps & Systems in Piqua, OH continue to make it a priority today.

With several employees and customers residing in the Ohio Miami Valley region, Crane Pumps & Systems 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. Crane Pumps & Systems, 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, Crane Pumps & Systems (on behalf of The Crane Foundation) presented a $5,000 donation to The American Red Cross. 

In June, Crane Pumps & Systems’ 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.  Crane Pumps & Systems 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, Crane Pumps & Systems’ 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, Crane Pumps & Systems also presented checks to several local agencies totaling $60,000.

Philanthropic involvement continues to be a pillar of the culture at Crane Pumps & Systems and a practice that gives employees a sense of pride.
