Cook Community Builders (CCB)
Cook Community Builders (CCB). CCB is an internal company volunteer program in which all full time employees are entitled to use up to 16 hours each, per year of company-paid time to assist in our local community. "Local community" could mean anything from their child's school to assisting with major charities like Red Cross, JDRF, etc. The program has had great success and we are excited to say that we have tallied over 1000 community hours company wide!

For the last three years, Cook Security Group/Cook Community Builders (CCB) has been heavily involved in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's Walk to Cure Diabetes. We began supporting JDRF when one of our employees and another employees' son were both diagnosed with Type 1. JDRF has come to hold a special place in our hearts and has opened our eyes to the thousands of children and adults diagosed with Type 1 Diabetes each year. The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes draws people together in a healthy activity for a worthy cause, raising money to improve the lives of every person effected by T1D by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. It's fun for families and builds camradarie among company employees. For more information about JDRF or the walk, click here.
Each year, Cook Security Group/Cook Community Builders (CCB) program donates time and supplies to assist the annual MJN "Help Defeat MS" Slingball tournament. The tournament holds a very special place in our hearts because our employees, Randy (CMO) and his brother Carter (ATM Technician) lost their mother to Multiple Sclerosis (MS). All proceeds raised from the MJN "Help Defeat MS" tournament are donated to Marilyn J. Neu Memorial Fund which goes towards fighting MS and racing for a cure. If you are interested in the tournament but have never played Slingball, never fear, it is super easy! Click here for additional information.
For five years now, Cook Security Group/Cook Community Builders (CCB) has been heavily involved with Schoolhouse Supplies' Tools for Schools program. We began our partnership by teaming up with Umpqua Bank to sponsor Marysville Elementary School in Portland, OR and have since branched off to sponsor our own school named Humbolt Elementary! The Tools for Schools Backpack Program has been working to level the educational playing field since 2003. By partnering businesses and organizations with local high-need schools to provide a backpack filled with supplies to each student on their first day of school, they ensure that all students have the tools they need in the classroom and increased access to education...
