WEST FARGO, N.D. (November 2020) – Employees at Doosan Bobcat North America, a global leader in compact equipment, raised more than $200,000 and donated resources to help local communities as part of its October Fall Charitable Giving Campaign. The campaign is an example of the company’s commitment to building strong relationships, engaging volunteers and providing financial and in-kind support to organizations and programs to make a positive impact in local communities. 
 
“We have a long history of community involvement including providing charitable contributions and employee volunteer opportunities every year,” said Stacey Breuer, director of corporate communication and public affairs. “Our Fall Charitable Giving Campaign is just one way we can give back to the communities in which we work and live. We’re proud to have donated to organizations that support various initiatives within our communities.” 
 
Doosan Bobcat employees manufactured more than 3,000 face shields to be donated to local healthcare facilities, volunteered more than 250 hours of work at local businesses, and donated nearly 5,000 items, including nonperishable food, books, winter gear and craft supplies. Donations were given to the following local charities: 

  • United Way Backpack Program – Bismarck, North Dakota 
  • United Way of Jefferson and Walworth Counties – Johnson Creek, Wisconsin 
  • United Community Action Partnership – Litchfield, North Dakota 
  • United Way of Iredell County – Statesville, North Carolina 
  • Richland Wilkin Food Pantry and Wahpeton Parks and Rec – Wahpeton, North Dakota 
  • Great Plains Food Bank, HERO and Habitat for Humanity – West Fargo, North Dakota 

Additionally in 2020, Doosan partnered with Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP), a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving injured veterans and their families, and Bombas, an e-commerce sock and apparel company with a mission to help those in need. The company formally launched its partnerships with WWP and Bombas at CONEXPO-CON/AGG in March 2020. 
 
Doosan Bobcat donated 5,000 pairs of Bombas socks to U.S. homeless shelters and veterans’ programs in communities where Doosan Bobcat operates. The company also raised money at the industry trade show by selling a limited edition, scale model of a T76 camouflage-wrapped loader with the WWP logo. More than $81,000 was raised to support injured veterans and their families. Doosan Bobcat also identified a U.S. veteran to receive a new Bobcat® R-Series T76 compact track loader and 80-inch bucket attachment, together valued at nearly $90,000. Andrew Long of Elon, N.C., will use the loader to help refurbish his 23-acre farm and make it a sanctuary for fellow veterans.
