Sky Valley Cabinetry, through our parent, Canyon Creek Cabinet Company, strives to be a good community neighbor, and has made a positive impact on the economic development of Snohomish County. Along with our employees, we donate time and provide financial and material support for a number of projects and organizations.
Sky Valley’s “Helping to Rebuild” program is designed to help homeowners in areas devastated by natural disasters to repair or rebuild so that they can move back into their homes. Working in partnership with Sky Valley dealers in those areas, we will offer the same price discount for new cabinets to homeowners that we give our own employees.
See the Helping to Rebuild page for more information.
In the past we have donated the cabinetry for two new homes in Oregon built for disabled veterans. The homebuilding was spearheaded by Homes For Our Troops (HFOT), a national non-profit organization founded in 2004 to help build new homes for returning veterans with serious disabilities and injuries. HFOT raises money, donated building materials, and professional labor to coordinate the building of accessible homes for service men and women and their immediate families. Visit the HFOT website.
Community programs that have received cabinetry from Canyon Creek/Sky Valley include:
- Concern for Animals - assisting low-income pet owners with food and help with pet medical care costs
- Fire Mountain Boy Scout Camp – a year-round facility for Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and use by community groups
- YMCA’s Youth Sparks Center – created to foster the ideas and talents of kids by giving them a place to discover their interests or “sparks.”
- Housing Hope – an eleven-unit apartment complex for low-income families
- Haven House – a Portland, OR shelter for homeless teenage mothers
- Cocoon House – a local shelter that provides housing and services for homeless teens
- Mobile Community Coordination Center – a revamped city bus that provides a mobile communications center for emergency responders
Canyon Creek was recognized by the YMCA of Snohomish County for its generous capital donation for the construction of the Monroe/Sky Valley Family Branch, as well as continued annual contributions.
- Sponsoring students involved in the week-long Washington Business Week program. The program for high school students focuses on teamwork, leadership and setting goals for personal and business situations.
- Assisting the Monroe Women’s Gospel Mission with a marketing plan, and updating the look of their brochure, logo and business cards.
Other notable financial donations include the Ronald McDonald House and the Everett Community College Foundation.
Every November, our employees participate in an annual food drive to benefit the Sky Valley Food Bank. Since 2001, we have donated more than $40,000 and over 8,000 pounds of food, to become one of the food bank’s largest contributors.
Canyon Creek Cabinet Company participates in the CERT program and sends employees every year to be trained. Since 2002, over 35 of our employees have undergone CERT program training. CERT provides education for disaster preparedness and training in fire safety, light search and rescue, and disaster medical operations.
Canyon Creek frequently donates cabinet doors, wood scraps and other raw materials to groups and individuals that make items for, or with, local youth:
- Wood for kids to build “treasure boxes” for a Habitat for Humanity/vacation bible school themed project.
- Donations of scrap wood to Recycled Playtime, a local company that provides play kitchens for kids. Kitchens are made entirely out of repurposed furniture pieces, recycled wood and other materials.
- Annually giving scrap wood to a local group of toymakers, who turn the pieces into puzzles, pull toys and wooden animals that are donated to shelters and children’s hospitals.
- Cabinet doors donated to the Lake Stevens Boys and Girls Club basketball team were repurposed and used as trophy plaques for the 12-year-old boys’ team.
- Wood donated to the Monroe Correctional Complex¹s Carpentry program was used to build doghouses, toy desk/chests and jewelry boxes that were then donated to local charities.
- Donated cabinet doors became personalized toy chests for the Friends of Youth nonprofit, benefiting local homeless youth.
