Day of Caring at Comopolitan Industries

For Saskatoon Co-op’s Day of Caring, we are provided volunteers and supplies to help paint at Cosmo Industries. Check out the video at:


On April 11, 2016, Cosmo Industries experienced a flood that affected over 50,000 square feet of their building. Saskatoon Co-op is providing 40 gallons of Co-op Imagine Paint and volunteers to mark the return of Cosmo Industries to the building and an end of eight months of renovations. The paint donation was made available through the Co-op Communities in Full Colour donation program.

Cosmo Industries is a social enterprise dedicated to improving the quality of life for adults with intellectual and physical disabilities.  Their mission states "Respecting the dignity and need of each individual with intellectual disabilities to reach their full potential." For over 4 decades, Saskatoon Co-op has been a supporter of Cosmo Industries and feels privileged to be part of their workforce for a day through the Day of Caring.

The Co-op Communities in Full Colour paint donation program is designed to provide local community organizations with free paint to be used towards local community improvements. The paint donation covers any interior, exterior, primer, stain or specialty coatings required. The program is available to registered charities, registered non-profits, registered community groups, youth sport and recreation associations, and community improvement associations across Western Canada. More information on the program and applications are available at
