Florence Copper Receives Award from Congressman Paul Gosar

At a recent networking mixer of the Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce, Katie Ward from Congressman Paul Gosar's office presented representatives from Florence Copper with the Gosar Game Changer award for excellent community work in Florence.

The Congressman explained why Florence Copper was chosen in a recent Facebook post:

Florence Copper is this week’s #GosarGameChanger! Located in the historic Copper Corridor of Arizona, this project offers a unique opportunity to provide strong economic benefits to the community of Florence and the state of Arizona with minimal environmental impact. Florence Copper has awarded over $60,000 in scholarships to students in Florence and the surrounding areas, and created the Florence Copper Community Foundation which provides resources to to address the Florence community needs, particularly those with long-term sustainability. To date, more than $41,000 has been awarded through the Florence Copper Community Foundation, including recipients such as Honoring/Hiring/Helping Our Heroes of Pinal County, the Florence Food Bank, the Copper Basin YMCA, Future Forward Foundation, and countless other charities and events. We are so glad to have Florence Copper in #AZ04!

Thank you to Congressman Gosar and his staff. We are honored to be #GosarGameChangers!
