Investing in the Community: The Florence Copper Community Foundation

The Florence Copper Community Foundation was created to provide resources to initiatives that will effectively address community needs, particularly those with long-term sustainability.

Employee Volunteering

Since 2015, Florence Copper has volunteered in highway cleanups. We adopted Hunt Highway through the Town of Florence's Adopt-a-Town-Road program and volunteer in quarterly cleanups to take care of our adopted highway. Our employee volunteer programs will continue to grow as we advance to commercial operations.
