As an Employee-Owned Company, Northwest Pump's employee owners have made an ongoing commitment to, among other things, "making a positive contribution to our community".  Our Employee Ownership Committee is the steward for this commitment, as outlined in the EOC charter.

Holiday Family Sponsorship

Each year, for over 40 years now, Northwest Pump has worked with local charities to "adopt" families during the holidays who otherwise wouldn't be able to celebrate the season with gifts as most families are fortunate to do. After receiving lists of needed items for the families and wish lists for the children, Northwest Pump employees contribute their own time, money, and tons of energy into shopping, buying, wrapping, and delivering dozens of gifts to these families in December.

In 2016, Northwest Pump partnered with four local Portland charities whose missions are to support families which have experienced economic hardship, homelessness, serious illness, and other difficulties. These charities facilitated our sponsorship of four families in need of necessary household items as well as special extras for the children.  This year, Northwest Pump's helper elves were able to bring some added holiday happiness to a total of 18 family members, including 10 children. 

Meeting the families upon delivery of the packages and seeing the faces of parents and children when dozens of wrapped gifts are brought into their homes is incredibly rewarding. This is a wonderful tradition which we are proud to continue.

Food Drive

In 2016, Northwest Pump organized a food drive across all 16 branches with the proceeds benefitting local food banks in those areas.  Collectively, the employee-owners of NWP collected over a ton of food with a final total of 2,886 pounds!  The 2016 food drive was such a success that another one is planned for 2017.

Coat Drive

In 2016, Northwest Pump’s corporate office organized a coat drive benefitting people in our community.  Altogether, NWP was pleased to gather 70 coats for the Good Neighbor Center in Portland.  We are looking forward to doing it again this Winter.

Habitat For Humanity

In 2013, Northwest Pump partnered with Habitat for Humanity to sponsor a family.  Sponsoring a Habitat family means that the sponsor group is committing to a "full house build" for a family in need.  Northwest Pump completed the full house build in Fall of 2013 with over 20 employees volunteering Saturdays at the job site.  Our sponsor family was great family consisting of a single mother with three young boys.

Many NWP employees continue to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity and stay involved in Habitat fundraising events.

On the Run

Over the years, Northwest Pump has sponsored teams for fundraising runs in our territory, such as Portland to Coast, Hood to Coast, and Race for the Cure.  Dozens of NWP employees has given countless hours and raised tens of thousands of dollars for worthwhile causes.  Look for a NWP team at a fundraising run near one of our 16 branch locations!
