ESOP News: CPI Goes All In to Fill the Bus for a Good Cause
August 15, 2012
While kids across America might not be thrilled with heading back to school this month, the employee owners (and parents of some of those kids!) at Chatsworth Products in Georgetown, TX sure are!
In what’s become something of a tradition around these parts, the upcoming school year also meant CPI’s annual “Fill the Bus” school supply drive recently kicked into high gear for the sixth year running.
Thanks to a huge outpouring of employee owner support and participation, CPI’s Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) committee in Georgetown was able to secure a variety of school supplies, cash donations and proceeds from a special inter-office blind auction to raise over $800 for local area school districts and those students (K thru 12) who’ll no doubt appreciate the everyday items that make their educational experience a success.

Fully embracing our belief that “we’re all in this together,” some employee owners of CPI even took personal time out of their weekends to help distribute these school supplies at a local church!

Not only does our employee ownership spirit translate into giving back to the local communities we live in, but it helps motivate each and every action we take on the job. That means a true dedication to quality, craftsmanship and superior customer service – something you can count on when selecting the right IT infrastructure storage products for your next project.
And with National ESOP Month (October) just around the corner, look for even more inspiring stories of community outreach and CPI team camaraderie soon!
