Giving Back : The Como Zoo

At Standard Water Control Systems it has been a long-standing tradition to be active in the community we serve. Over the years we’ve been proud to be part of community events, local programs for children like Little League, and ongoing support of community resources and nonprofit organizations. As a company, it is important to us that we do all we can to improve our community just as we do all we can for our customers.

  Over the past few years we’re particularly proud of our involvement with two organizations in the Twin Cities helping provide joy and comfort to both children and adults. The Como Zoo is a long-standing treasure for many families in our area where visitors are able to enjoy animals, plants, and educational opportunities in a wonderful setting. Its mission “To inspire our public to value the presence of living things in our lives” can be seen in each exhibit and on the faces of guests as they enjoy a day out at one of the great zoos in the country. Our goal is supporting the zoo in to ensure that it can continue to provide these special memories to children and their families long into the future.

The Sojourner Project is another effort of critical importance in our community. Focused on providing safe shelter for women and children along with advocacy and education for individuals and communities victimized by domestic violence, Soujourner gives essential support to those that need it at difficult times in their lives. By providing some added help at the holidays we hope to give people dealing with very tough situations a few reasons to smile. 

As a thank-you for financially supporting The Como Zoo, we receive quite a number of stuffed animals that we, in turn, donate to the Sojourner Project so the kids involved can have some special gifts in a time of need.   We thank all our employees, customers, and partners who make it possible for Standard Water Control Systems to work to be a positive member of our community.
