Cook Remodeling Community Service
Cook Remodeling and Custom Construction is committed to helping those in need, and for the care of our environment in the local community. We do this by the green remodeling practices of recycling building materials, organizing the donation of useable products & appliances, as well as offering our skills to support local non-profit construction renovation projects.
Recent projects include:
- Assistance in the planning for office expansion for Maggie’ Place in Phoenix, and modified their Tempe home to serve expectant mothers who are alone or need a place to live. www.maggiesplace.org
- Purchase and donation of cabinets, bathroom shower, toilets, vanities, sinks, lighting, bookcases, entertainment center, washer/dryer, beds, lamps, dressers, and furniture to Habitat for Humanity of Phoenix to help furnish newly constructed homes.
- Arranging the donation of usable appliances and cabinetry to non-profit organizations and Stardust Building Supplies at the Mesa, Arizona location.

Last year two seniors from Scottsdale won, and four from other Arizona cities. The National Federation of Independent Business’ Young Entrepreneur Foundation will grant NFIB Young Entrepreneur Awards nationwide in the amount of $1,000 – $10,000. Applications are accepted from October 1-December 15th. For more information, to read the inspirational stories of past winners, or to apply, go here.
In addition to our donation of time, we donate 5% of our profit to benefit local non-profit agencies, and 5% to national and international charities who assist families in crisis needing food, medical care, shelter. We choose charities that are as efficient with the dollar as we are, such as Mercy Corps or Habitat for Humanity.
We at Cook Remodeling feel very blessed that the majority of our work comes from referrals of our happy clients. So we started the COOK REMODELING CLIENTS HALL OF FAME program for clients who have helped at least three others have a positive experience in remodeling their home by choosing Cook Remodeling.
