Community Giving and Volunteerism

Bobcat Company is committed to investing time and resources in the communities where our customers, dealers and employees live and work. We have a long history of community involvement – supporting our employees in charitable contributions and volunteer organizations every year. We’re proud to partner with many organizations that support various initiatives within our communities.

Doosan Day of Community Service

Multiple times each year, hundreds of Doosan and Bobcat Company employees across North America take part in Doosan Day of Community Service.

Our teams participate in a variety of tasks – including working at local food banks, schools and medical facilities; painting and cleaning up community centers and food pantries; holding used book drives at local libraries; and performing construction tasks at community recreational facilities and homeless shelters. Our employees look forward to the events every year – having the opportunity to both serve others in the community and engage in a meaningful activity with their colleagues.

JM Environmental Employee Using Bobcat S650 Compact Excavator With Clamp Attachment To Clean Up Debris

Restoring Santa Rosa After Wildfire

When the Santa Rosa fires left Californians with more than 8,900 homes and businesses in ruin and 245,000 acres of wine country covered in ash, Bobcat was ready to help. To aid in the recovery effort, we supplied JM Environmental, a local hazardous materials abatement and demolition company, with a fleet of Bobcat equipment and attachments. Workers used our excavators, skid-steer and compact track loaders to sift through the wreckage and clean up debris. Together we helped the people of the Santa Rosa region pick up the pieces of their lives and build hope for a new future.

Cleanup After A Hurricane

Bobcat equipment is often on-site after natural disasters hit, helping communities recover. Just ask John Cunha, President and CEO of JFM Concrete, who relied on Bobcat machines to help his company demolish and rebuild damaged homes and neighborhoods in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. In one news story after another covering the cleanup efforts, viewers saw JFM employees using our familiar white equipment to repair buildings battered by the superstorm. Although Bobcat Company cannot be everywhere when disaster strikes, the owners, operators and dealers of our equipment are. We are proud to support them in every way we can.

Charitable Partnerships and Outreach

Wounded Warrior Project (WWP)

We are a proud partner of the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), an organization dedicated to helping wounded veterans and their families. In 2020, we sold limited-edition scale models and co-branded shirts, mugs and hats, with all proceeds going directly to WWP. Bobcat and WWP also donated a Bobcat T76 to veteran Andrew Long — empowering him to achieve his goals.

Bombas

As an organization, Bombas helps those who need it most. So, when they learned that socks are the most requested and least donated clothing item in homeless shelters, they decided to do something about it. Recently, we partnered with Bombas to give away 5,000 pairs of their work boot socks to VA programs and shelters in areas of need.

Connor, who suffers from a rare blood disorder, enjoyed a limo ride to our Gwinner, North Dakota, manufacturing facility, where he was welcomed as a guest of honor and spent the day seeing up close how Bobcat equipment is built.
