In the Community
We live, work and play in each community we serve. We know that we are part of something greater than ourselves.
When it comes to community, we're not just a distributor. We're your neighbor. With more than 285 branches in communities nationwide, our associates do everything they can to build thriving communities both on and off the job.
Water touches everything, and at Core & Main, we are committed to helping create a world where everyone can thrive for generations to come. From national organizations to local causes, there is no limit to the impact a community can have.
Acting with Empathy
Both Core & Main and our associates are passionate about keeping our communities happy and healthy. When we're not ensuring neighborhoods have clean water, we're collecting food donations for those in need. In addition to companywide food drives, Core & Main teams in Texas and Oklahoma banded together to donate more than 8,400 food items to their local food banks and pantries.
Acting with Integrity
At Core & Main, we are committed to honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice and bettering the lives of their families. That is why our associates regularly donate to and raise awareness for Folds of Honor, among other organizations. We can shape and fight for the future, one donation at a time.
Water is Our Responsibility
While community is a vital aspect of everything Core & Main stands for, we cannot ignore the bigger picture. As a leading distributor of water infrastructure products and services, we recognize our responsibility to help provide water integrity for a better future for our world. In dealing with the earth's more valuable resource, we delight in bringing inventive and effective solutions to communities everywhere.
From cleaning up our planet's oceans to fostering the infrastructure experts of tomorrow, we are committed to sparking a positive change. That includes ensuring neighborhoods nationwide get the water they need. In 2020, Core & Main teamed up with the city of Duluth, Minn., to install 55 miles of HDPE pipe inground as part of their capital improvement program. Since installation, the city has not seen a single butt fusion failure. The Alliance for PE Pipe awarded the City and Core & Main the Municipal Leadership Award in recognition of how their work helped the entire state's HDPE growth.
More Than a Job
We believe in the power of neighbors helping neighbors, and that same belief extends to our associates as well. The Core & Main Caring Fund was established in 2019 to provide financial assistance to members of our family facing hardships and adversity. Through a partnership with the St. Louis Community Foundation, we are lucky enough to be able to push the charitable dollars of our company and associates in action to help those truly in need.
