Together, we can truly make a difference in our communities!
Kokosing has a long history of supporting the communities where we live and work. We are humbled by the enduring generosity of our team members who come together to support our most vulnerable neighbors.
The coronavirus has created unprecedented and challenging times for everyone and community organizations are in urgent need of support. Kokosing moved it’s Annual Children’s Hospital Giving Campaign forward by 6 months to help care for our small blessings at local children’s hospitals.
Corman Kokosing was proud to make a donation to the Children’s National Foundation. Every child deserves the chance for a healthy future and our support hopes to make that a reality.
In an effort to do our part in coming together as a society during difficult times, Corman Kokosing Construction Company is contributing $3,500.00 to the Community Food Bank Fundraiser – COVID-19 in conjunction with the partnership between Tidewater Utility Construction, Inc. and the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore. This contribution will help provide 1,000 meals to those that are less fortunate and we encourage our fellow construction companies, suppliers, vendors and other industry communities and businesses to consider the same.
BEING A GOOD MEMBER OF THE COMMUNITY
One of Corman Kokosing’s Core Values is “Be a good member of the Community” and we want to brag about Karen Matassa-Countiss who is doing just that in more ways than one. When not working on Statements of Qualifications or Technical Proposals, Karen, who is our Sr. Marketing and Proposal Coordinator is busy rescuing dogs. It’s been a passion all her life to help animals in need and often travels long distances to provide aid.
From cleaning kennels and walking shelter dogs, to helping owners re-home their pets safely, to pulling shelter dogs to get the into a rescue, to getting homeless Texas dogs transported to rescues here on the east coast – she does it all.
Recently, Karen put her proposal experience to work to help write a grant proposal for a Maryland non-profit pet food pantry. The pantry went on to become the recipient of a $1,000 grant.
Karen is not only an extremely valuable member to the Corman Kokosing team but she shares the company’s values, puts them to work and is a GREAT leader within the community. Way to go, Karen!
