Relief Efforts

At Resolution Copper, we believe we have a responsibility to help when our community is in need. That’s why we’ve dedicated significant resources and volunteer hours to local relief efforts.

COVID-19

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have contributed over $1.6 million in relief funds to local charities and community organizations. These funds have gone towards funding personal protective equipment for frontline workers, school technology for virtual learning, and supporting shelters, senior centers, and childcare.

Local food banks

We have continuously provided assistance to the Superior Food Bank since 2007, working with the Arizona United Food Bank to donate over 233,000 meals and more than 50,000 cans of clean drinking water in 2020 alone. We don’t want any members of our community to go hungry or not have access to clean drinking water.

Disaster relief

Our community is sometimes hit with the unexpected. When the Copper Triangle suffered from devastating wildfires and flooding in the summer of 2021, we were ready and willing to help. Resolution Copper employees volunteered, and many offered a place to stay for those who were affected by the Telegraph and Mescal wildfires. The company also donated resources, including buildings and stored water supply, to assist in the emergency response. Following these natural disasters, Resolution Copper partnered with the Red Cross, Humane Society, and Superior Food Bank to donate food, water, and other supplies to evacuation centers.
