A Year Of Giving: Crossland’s Commitment To Community Care
Throughout the past year, Crossland and its employees have made a substantial impact on our communities through numerous Crossland Cares initiatives in the cities where we live, work, and play. As part of our ongoing efforts, we’ve collaborated with local organizations and participated in a range of events, spreading kindness and support throughout our regions.
Salvation Army Adopt an Angel Program:
As we proudly mark our 6th year participating in the Salvation Army’s Adopt an Angel Program, we continue to hold this initiative close to our hearts. This program ensures that underprivileged individuals in our communities experience the warmth and joy of the holiday season. In this year alone, Crossland employees wholeheartedly adopted over 70 angels. This heartwarming endeavor reflects our dedication to bringing smiles to faces during special times of the year.
Christmas Elf Program with Liberty Utilities:
In collaboration with Liberty Utilities for the Christmas Elf Program, Crossland embraced the spirit of giving by sharing joy with those in need. This year, we proudly adopted 42 out of 109 senior citizens through this initiative. This collective endeavor embodies the impact local partnerships can have in making a difference within our communities.
Earth Day Cleanup with the Marketing Team:
For Earth Day, our Marketing Team rolled up their sleeves and got down and dirty to clean up yards around our home office. This cool initiative helped brighten a neighbor’s day and was a great team comradery activity.
Tulsa Heart Walk:
Crossland’s Tulsa team took strides towards healthier communities by participating in the Tulsa Heart Walk. Crossland’s own Matthew Gleeson, was this year’s Tulsa Heart Walk Chair, led the charge in raising awareness about heart health while contributing to a charitable cause.
OZCX Event Supporting Arkansas Children’s Hospital:
Demonstrating our commitment to children’s health, Crossland sponsored the OZCX event, with proceeds benefiting the Arkansas Children’s Hospital. This partnership aimed to make a positive impact on the lives of young patients and their families.
Teacher Appreciation Week:
In recognition of Teacher Appreciation Week, Crossland delivered 35 teacher baskets to 25 different school districts. This gesture expressed our gratitude for the hard work and dedication of educators in shaping the future of our communities.
STEM Activities Donation to Rural School Districts:
Through the Pitsco/Crossland Partnership, we donated $2500 worth of STEM activities to four rural school districts in the 4-state area. This initiative aimed to enhance educational opportunities and inspire young minds in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Volunteering for Make-A-Wish Foundation:
Crossland Construction Company (CCC) and Crossland Heavy Contractors (CHC) joined forces in volunteering for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, taking donations to fulfill the wishes of children facing critical illnesses.
Founders Tree Lighting Ceremony:
Our commitment to community celebrations was evident as we donated our time and manpower to the Founders Tree Lighting Ceremony, creating a festive atmosphere for all to enjoy.
Crossland is humbled and proud to support various initiatives, programs, and foundations throughout our communities. A few other ones included The Great Root Movement, a community supporting women through child loss and domestic abuse, Dan Bikes Kansas, a 790-mile bike ride promoting higher education for Pittsburg State University, and Touch a Truck at Northeast Oklahoma Elementary Career Day in Owasso.
As we reflect on a year filled with meaningful contributions, Crossland remains committed to community care. Through collaboration, compassion, and active participation, we strive to make a lasting impact on the lives of those around us. Looking ahead, we are excited to continue these initiatives and explore new opportunities to support and uplift our communities.
