POOLCORP Supports Special Olympics

Founded 50 years ago in 1968, the mission of Special Olympics is “to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. This gives them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.”

Swimming events are a key component of Special Olympics competitions. Individual athletes compete in freestyle, backstroke, butterfly, and breast stroke competitions, and teams compete in relay competitions as well.

POOLCORP is proud to support Louisiana Special Olympics as a Medallion Level Sponsor.

Storm Relief

A spirit of stewardship and service to the community has always been at the heart of the POOLCORP.

In the summer of 2017, when hurricanes devastated areas of coastal Texas, the Caribbean, and the Florida peninsula damaging thousands of homes, disrupting lives, and closing businesses, the POOLCORP team took action.

In the Houston area, efforts to get Sales Centers – and the area’s pool industry – back to work illustrate teamwork at its finest. Dallas and Austin Sales Centers pitched in, receiving and delivering products to keep up with customer demands. When Sales Centers were forced to be closed due to flooding, Employees spent the time helping neighbors gut their homes to prepare for rebuilding, while one volunteer first responder worked tirelessly performing high water rescues.

Hurricane, Sales Centers Flooding

Hurricane Irma, SCP Fort Myers Roof Collapsed
Sales Centers, Dark Warehouses
Hurricane Maria, Devastating Puerto Rico

After Hurricane Irma passed through South Florida, SCP Fort Myers’ roof collapsed and the building took on about 6 inches of water. Though many employees were without power and water and some sustained damages to their homes, they opened the Sales Centers and worked in the dark warehouses and sweltering parking lots that had been transformed into makeshift sales counters. Employees transported water and brought in meals for others that did not have a means to cook.

After getting grazed by Irma, Puerto Rico took a devastating direct hit from Hurricane Maria – the strongest storm to hit the island in decades. From POOLCORP’s Corporate Office in Covington, LA to divisions across the country, support for the storm victims rolled in.


Midwest Division, Personal Hygiene, Cleaning Supplies

The Midwest Division took a systematic approach with each region taking on specific provision categories like personal hygiene, cleaning supplies, and baby supplies.


Hurricane Sandy, Community Members contribute
POOLCORP, Employees Compassionate Support

With the storms bringing back memories of Hurricane Sandy, the Northeast Division was eager to help. Once word spread about the shipments, employees’ family, church, and community members were eager to contribute as well.

Through the hard work and dedication of employees in the affected areas and the compassionate support by fellow employees around the country, POOLCORP is proud to have made a positive impact on those around us.

Future Initiatives

In an effort to give back to the environment, POOLCORP will be partnering with U.S. companies to plant hundreds of trees in an effort to offset the GHG emissions that we produce as a corporation and to help with soil erosion.

Here at POOLCORP, we are all about WATER! So, it only makes sense to us to ensure that people in need have the clean drinking water they need in order to survive. POOLCORP will be partnering with organizations to donate clean drinking water or the means to purify water to communities within and outside the United States.

Political Involvement and Contributions

While POOLCORP does not offer donations for any political party or candidate, we do encourage all of our employees to actively take part in the political process and support candidates of their choice.

POOLCORP participates in trade organizations that represent our industry as a whole.
