Copart locations across the country stay involved in the community by joining their local Chambers of Commerce, participating in teambuilding events and inviting the community to their events.
In May, Cordella Brown, General Manager, and Ashley King, Assistant General Manager, from Yard 54 located in Raleigh, North Carolina attended Industry Appreciation Day. Yard 54 has attended this event for the last two years. Cordella and Ashley said that it is a great networking opportunity with other industry leaders.
This year, Copart sponsored holes at the Spring Fling Golf Tournament, had a booth set up to give out “Copart Swag”, and represented a booth at the cornhole tournament.
In addition to their participation at the event in May, Yard 54 also hosted its 1st Annual Appreciation Day on June 23. Yard 54 intended this day to serve as a thank you to everyone who contributes to Copart’s success, because it is truly a team effort.
Yard 54 combined the Appreciation Day with the Open House Event for the Ewin Chamber of Commerce. The purpose of the open house was to have the community come see what Copart is all about. Whether they came just to satisfy their curiosity or were looking to begin a family project, Yard 54 wants the community to know they are open to the public and can assist on all levels.
“Everyone was very impressed, and excited about all that Copart has to offer,” according to the Ewin Chamber of Commerce.
With a great turnout, more than 400 hot dogs and tons of frozen yogurt with all the fixings, yard 54 declared the Open House and Appreciation Day a success!
