Peninsula Co-op Community

Peninsula Co-op is very proud to contribute to the communities where we do business through our Community Support Program. Each year we donate a portion of our profits back to the community, in addition to the annual membership rebate. In the last year, our Community Support Program is proud to have given back over $480,000 to more than 250 local charities, organizations, youth groups, student awards and community projects. We were represented at over 50 community events which ranged from fundraisers to sporting events, children’s festivals and agricultural fairs.

 

 

December 2017

This was our third year being involved with the Zone’s Annual Toy Drive for the Christmas Giving Network. We are proud to say that it was the biggest year yet with over $18,000 in cash and gift cards being donated! That’s not including the mountain of toys that were donated by the community!

On top of opening our newest location (our 17th gas centre, located in the West Shore), we were represented with our own game nights with both the Peninsula Panthers and the Victoria Grizzlies hockey clubs. Our staff also had a great time getting into the holiday spirit volunteering with Santa’s Anonymous.

 

October 2017

For the second year in a row, we were proud to be recognized at the Employer of the Year by the Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce. We were also the Presenting Sponsor of the Best of the West Shore Awards with the West Shore Chamber.

We are proud to announce that the total funds raised from our first annual Fuel Good Day was $17,913.33. All the money raised (5 cents per litre sold on September 19th) went to the Vancouver Island Children’s Health Foundation. Thank you to everyone who filled up!

 

September 2017

This year marked the 20th Anniversary for the Tour de Rock Cops for Cancer. For Peninsula Co-op, it was our 19th year being a part of the cause as a major sponsor and contributor.

Between our annual Cupcake Day and Bake Sale, multiple BBQs and Carwashes, as well as a donation from our Member Relations Committee, we proudly presented the Tour with a cheque for over $19,646.71.

June 2017

The parade, pancakes, music and games were all fantastic at this year’s Brentwood Bay Day at the start of June. Our volunteers had a great time handing out prizes and giving away free gas cards! It was great to see so many members there too!

For the third year in a row, we were the Presenting Sponsor of the Cedar Hill Ladies Field Day Golf Tournament in support of Victoria Hospice. As a part of our sponsorship, we donated $5,000.

Cooper was out at a number of different events including the Central Saanich Little League Closing Ceremonies and the Mascot Madness Shamrocks Game Night.

We have been a long-time supporter of the Victoria Shamrocks. This year’s game night Presented by Peninsula Co-op had over 3,000 fans in attendance! We also launched our FREE player cards at our Goldstream location with the ‘Rocks on site helping pump gas for the afternoon.
