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.
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.
Fargo team members work with many nonprofit organizations, including the Great Plains Food Bank, Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity, Adopt a Highway, Charism, HERO, ND Autism Center, YMCA Cass-Clay, YWCA, Second Harvest Food Bank and Clean the World.
Bismarck employees come together every Doosan Day of Community Service to give back to their community by participating in various food, pet and school supply drives, highway cleanup and completing repairs at Fastrax BMX. Employees also donate their time to Dakota Zoo, Ft. Lincoln Trolley, Lutheran Social Services, BMX Track, Bismarck-Mandan Adpot-a-Highway, City of Mandan, Heavens Helpers Soup Café, Bismarck Parks & Rec, TR4 Heart & Soul and Harmon Lake.

Hundreds of Gwinner employees contribute to various local nonprofit organizations, including LIQ’R PIGZ, Sargent County Museum, Sargent County Fair, City of Gwinner, Havana Park Board, American Legion, City of Lisbon, Lisbon Fire Hall, Milnor YOU, Oakes Fire Hall and Rutland Park Board.
Suwanee team members impact many different nonprofit organizations, including North Gwinnett Co-op and ParkPride. Employees assist in organizing food pantry donations, putting away items in the thrift shop, landscape maintenance and beautifying rundown parks.
Employees from Litchfield are always willing to help a fellow neighbor, whether they organize volunteers to wash windows along Main Street or lend a hand to assist a colleague in the aftermath of a tornado.
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.
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.
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.
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.
When five-year-old Connor Menard told the Make-A-Wish Foundation he wanted to visit the Bobcat Company headquarters, we were honored to help make his dream come true. 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.
Bobcat has a long partnership with the United Way. The company is proud to join with local United Way organizations in their quest to make their communities better places to live, work and raise families through charitable giving and volunteer efforts.
