“We have a corporate culture that believes companies, regardless of their size, need to do the right thing. We manufacture in the USA, creating jobs at home. We buy US products and encourage our customers and suppliers to do the same, to assure we can maintain the jobs we create. We support the homeless through a variety of organizations, after school programs for troubled teens in the greater Chicago area and remain devoutly environmentally conscience, bottling in glass and using recycled cardboard in all our packaging. Being the Owner and President of a small company, I embrace the idea that everyone can make a difference no matter how small they may seem or what they may offer, compared to the larger world.” -Bill Daker – President/Owner of Cool Mountain Beverages
Christmas Tree growers have been providing free trees for military families for years. In 2005, FedEx contacted the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation, the 501(c)(3) charitable branch of the National Christmas Tree Association, and wanted to be involved in the foundation’s mission. Together the two organizations expanded the idea of providing Christmas Trees to military families, and Trees for Troops was born. treesfortroops.org

“We would like to thank our customers for bringing joy to the families of those who serve and we appreciate the fact that any donation is significant to these efforts.

In this, the season of giving, we ask that you join with Cool Mountain and share the spirit of the holiday, with those who have served and sacrificed that we may live free.” - Bill Daker
