Giving back to the community is an important part of what we do. We have a dedicated group of employees who help us identify which charitable events and volunteer activities to participate in or sponsor. Here is just a partial list of our involvement in the communities we annually serve.
If you have a favorite charity or organization you regularly support, please tell us about it.
The Community Involvement and Corporate Giving Committee, or “Carroll Cares,” is a group of Carroll employees who work to institute a company-wide approach to providing financial and nonfinancial assistance to worthy causes. Its primary responsibilities are two-fold:
Overseeing and facilitating all corporate giving and monetary donations made on behalf of Carroll Home Services Fuel Company.
All requests for corporate donations or volunteers are filtered through the Corporate Giving Committee for consideration and approval. Any solicitations for volunteers, financial support or sponsorship must be submitted in writing to the Corporate Giving Committee at 2700 Loch Raven Road, Baltimore, MD 21218 or via fax at (410) 366-1223. We look forward to hearing from you!
Carroll Cares participates in a variety of annual events:
MDA Golf Tournament: Each year we hold a golf tournament to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). In 19 years, we’ve raised over $735,000 for MDA to aid in its fight against neuromuscular diseases!
John’s Hopkins Children’s Center Golf Tournament: For the last three years, Carroll has held a golf tournament to benefit the John’s Hopkins Children’s Center, Maryland’s most comprehensive, acute-care hospital for children, and the premier children’s hospital in the country. To date we have raised over $72,000 for the John’s Hopkins Children’s Center.
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk: Carroll employees and their families participate in the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in downtown Baltimore. Each year, the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk raises over $250,000 towards the fight against Breast Cancer.
GEDCO Food Drive: We hold an annual food drive each year to benefit the GEDCO (Govans Ecumenical Development Corporation) Food Pantry. Last year Carroll employees delivered three vehicles of donations (over 2,000 canned goods and dry foods) to the Cares Food Pantry located at St Mary’s in Govans. Cares Food Pantry distributed the food to needy families in Baltimore City.
In our continuing commitment to giving back to the community, Carroll supported the following organizations last year by providing either monetary, fuel products or volunteer support:
Carroll Fuel matches employee contributions of $25 or more (with a maximum of $100 per employee) per calendar year to qualified charitable, non-profit organizations. To generate this match, employees submit a matching gift form, available from Human Resources, with documentation of the contribution.
