Giving back to our community is the cooperative way

December 1, 2023

At Trico, we believe that connection powers our purpose. This connection brings us together as a community – with the understanding that we can do more together than we could do by ourselves.

Trico employees live in the communities we serve and throughout the year we host food drives and other donation events. Employees also donate to United Way of Southern Arizona and volunteer throughout the community, including at the Sahuarita Food Bank & Community Resource Center.

Wes Crane, Land Services and Environmental Supervisor, said volunteering for the food bank was a rewarding experience. “The folks running the food bank are great, and the people getting help really appreciate it,” he said.

During the Trico Golf Tournament, employees raised $850 for the Cooperative Family Fund (CFF). The mission of CFF is to strengthen the bonds of cooperative families by helping cooperative employees and their children deal with grief and the loss of a loved one.

Employees had a chili and salsa cookoff to support the Homicide Survivors Hope for the Holidays. Employees raised $240.
