This September, we’d like to recognize Suncor Energy as our outstanding corporate partner of the month!
Since 2007, when the Suncor team boldly committed to helping us establish a presence in the quickly-changing, high-need Commerce City area, we’ve been working together for better outcomes in our shared community. Not only did they support our school-based site at Kearney Middle School while we got a foothold in the community, but they quickly committed to helping us expand into a freestanding facility by becoming the lead sponsor – with a $1,000,000 investment – in what would become the Suncor Boys & Girls Club.
For Suncor, who strives to foster sustainable communities where their employees not only work, but also live, their investment in our Clubs aligns perfectly with their values and turns their brand into a physical beacon of hope in the Commerce City community. With committed involvement on our Board of Directors from Nancy Thonen, regular volunteer engagement and a commitment to celebrating with us each year at events like the gala, our Gates Camp celebration and Flight to Luxury, Suncor is the model of a true corporate partner. In fact, just last month they sent skilled volunteers up to our Gates Camp property in Ward, CO to repair the property after another busy summer. Their Suncor crews re-graded the road, re-chinked cabins, repaired decks and more. Hats off this month to one of our most exceptional, committed and longstanding corporate partners, Suncor Energy!
