Giving back to our community
We not only want to protect what’s important in the homes and businesses of our customers, but we also want to protect what’s important for our community by investing our time and contributions in these community partners:
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Foundation
The Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Foundation, established in 2004 by business and civic leaders as an independent, non-profit organization, strives to strengthen the services of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department and promote public safety in Charlotte. CPI has partnered with the foundation to help fund several projects for the Police Deparment including: Electronic Monitoring Devices, funding to help build a DNA lab for cold case investigations, and most recently to install fire extinguishers in every police cruiser.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. No child is ever denied treatment because of the family’s inability to pay. CPI partners with St. Jude every year to help make sure that never changes!
Do The Right Thing
Three times a year children from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area, on the basis of their exemplary behavior and attitude, are nominated by firefighters, police officers, teachers, and the public. Each quarter, ten nominees are chosen to receive a Do The Right Thing award. Because of CPI’s relationship with the Carolina Panthers the ceremony is held at Bank of America Stadium once a year. The children are treated to a visit from the TopCats Cheerleaders and often one of the Panthers players. CPI is proud to be a partner and sponsor of the Do The Right Thing program for over 7 years.
Police Explorers “Christmas Project”
30 years ago retired deputy police chief Glen Mowrey started delivering food & presents to families in need. Now a county-wide charity event, the Christmas Project helps out over 600 families at Christmas time. CPI sponsors and volunteers each year for the toy and food drive and the delivery.
