Community Involvement

We are committed to supporting causes that matter to our clients, our employees and our communities. We aim to make a difference through corporate donations, sponsorships and the volunteer spirit of employees.

Community involvement and being a good corporate citizen are a top priority at CKF. We care about the communities we live and work in, and we wouldn’t consider ourselves  to be successful, unless we made a meaningful difference in those communities.

Our employees work at various fundraising initiatives throughout the year to raise awareness and collect donations for the local food banks. In 2014 we donated over 1500 pounds of food and we are on target for donations of 2000 pounds in 2015.
