We Support Our Local Schools
At Gulf Coast Office Products, we proudly support the communities where we live and work. We regularly participate in local charity events and school event sponsorships because we want the children in our communities to have every opportunity to grow and flourish.
Feed the Needy
Gulf Coast employees from the Mandeville office attend and participate in Covington Rotary Club activities. Each year the Covington Rotary Club, with the assistance of hundreds of community volunteers and donors, leads Feed the Needy a project to ensure that school children are fed while school cafeterias are closed for the long winter break at Christmas time.
Good Shepherd School Fundraiser
Gulf Coast New Orleans is proud to sponsor a team for the annual Good Shepherd School Golf Tournament. This fundraiser helps support the private Catholic school that is unique in offering a tuition-free education for low-income students. Parents pay an activity fee and complete service work at the school. Fundraising and state vouchers cover tuition.
The Arc Baton Rouge Plane Pull
GCOP of Baton Rouge competed in a charity plane pull to support The Arc Baton Rouge, an organization dedicated to provide support, service, and advocacy for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Our team of 25 pulled a FedEx 757 twelve feet along the runway. The plane weighed a whopping 147,000 pounds! We were all a little sore the next day, but the pain was definitely worth it!
40th Anniversary Crawfish Boil
GCOP recently celebrated our 40th anniversary! We decided to show our appreciation to all our loyal customers in true Louisiana fashion—by having a crawfish boil.
Good food and even better company made the day enjoyable for all. Happy birthday, GCOP!
18th Annual Sporting Clay Classic
Some of our GCOP team members recently competed in the 18th Annual Sporting Clay Classic—a sporting clay shooting event benefitting the Istrouma Area Council Boy Scouts of America. Marty Schmidt of GCOP Baton Rouge enjoys participating in this event to help support the Boy Scouts and have a little fun along the way.
We had a great time spending the day eating crawfish and shooting clays. We can’t wait until next year!
We love our LSU Tigers!
We love supporting our LSU Tigers! You can usually find us tailgaiting at the home games and cheering our Tigers to victory in LSU Stadium. Geaux Tigers!
Jubilee Baton Rouge Benefiting the Dunham School
This spring, we proudly showed our support for the Dunham School by participating in their annual fundraiser, “Jubilee Baton Rouge” as a Platinum Sponsor.
The Jubilee is the school’s main fundraiser for the year, and supports the academic, arts, and athletic programs in all three divisions of the school. Educational programs at Dunham are enriched by the Jubilee, while Partners in the Arts is able to sponsor events that showcase the artistic talents of Dunham’s students and bring the community together. Proceeds from the Jubilee help the Pawbackers’ efforts to fund targeted needs that enhance the athletic programs at Dunham. Jubilee is definitely a party for a cause!
GCOP Sponsors Charity Golf Event
Gulf Coast Office Products recently participated in the Baton Rouge Area Credit Union Charity Golf Tournament. All proceeds from the event were donated to help build the new freestanding Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital, which is set to open in the summer of 2019.
We had a great time playing golf and supporting our local community, and we are excited for the future of Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital!
GCOP Sponsors Lafayette Bar Assoc. Bench Bar
The Bench Bar is a three-day conference put on by the Lafayette Bar Association that offers a variety of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) courses. If offers lawyers and law students the opportunity to network and build professional relationships while continuing their studies of the law.
