At BluSky, we strongly believe that to be truly successful, we should share time and resources with the communities in which we work. That belief led us to endow the BluSky Charitable fund in 2010.
Since then, we have supported Children’s Hospital Colorado, United Way and the United Way Tocqueville Society, Habitat for Humanity, Ducks Unlimited, and a whole host of women’s, children’s, and industry-related philanthropic causes.
We feel our company is a genuine steward of the community and we value the importance of giving back. The Denver Business Journal recognized our philanthropic efforts in 2013 when we were named a top Partner in Philanthropy for small to mid-sized businesses.
Clays for Kids is our signature community service event that benefits children’s charities. It is a sporting clay tournament, set up much like a golf tournament only with shotguns and clay targets. Each year, we select a new charity as our beneficiary. Our first six years we raised $20,000 each year. The next five years we raised $50,000 each year, and this year, our tournaments raised $85,000. In all, we have raised more than $400,000 for children all over the United States.
Our event wouldn’t be possible without the numerous engineering, dry cleaning, property management, adjusting, attorney, accounting, and electronics firms who offer their sponsorship. If you are interested in sponsoring or participating, please contact us and we will share the details of an upcoming event.
We are proud that we can reduce our carbon footprint while simultaneously reducing costs. Every load of debris that we can keep out of the landfill saves our company and our customer money.
For several years, we have worked with Ecoprojex, the largest appliance recycler in Colorado, to help us with our recycling efforts. This has paid off by keeping several thousand tons of debris out of the landfill. On one multi-million dollar project, we were able to recycle or donate 36 refrigerators, dishwashers, microwaves, and stoves. In addition, we were able to recycle much of the damaged copper, HVAC, and plumbing components as well.
