Council Receives Donation From Fabick Cat In Honor of Centennial Anniversary
July 31, 2017
Fabick Cat, celebrating its 100-year anniversary, surprised the Greater St. Louis Area Council with a $100,000 donation during its centennial celebration on July 28 at the Fabick Cat headquarters in Fenton, MO.
Over the years, Fabick Cat has been a strong supporter of the Greater St. Louis Area Council. Whenever there is need for heavy equipment for capital improvements to the council’s camp properties, Fabick Cat has generously donated materials and equipment rentals.
Aside from its core business, Fabick Cat has also supported the Scouts with its STEM endeavors. Its headquarters has hosted several Cub Scout STEM Days for hundreds of Scouts learning about science, technology, engineering, and math. Fabick’s setting helped showcase the latest in tractor technology for the Scouts to see up-close.
Since 2001, the Greater St. Louis Area Council has had the great honor of having Doug Fabick, president of Fabick Cat, serve as a member of its board. He has generously hosted several meetings and events, including the board trip to summer camp each year. He also saw that the Fabick Charitable Trust was part of the Scouts’ 2009 Capital Campaign. In 2009, Mr. Fabick was honored with the Silver Beaver Award, the highest recognition a local council can bestow on an adult volunteer.
GSLAC was one of six non-profit organizations to receive a donation. Fabick also gave checks to SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital, the St. Louis Police Foundation, the Missouri Association of State Troopers Emergency Relief Society, Wings of Hope, and Segs4Vets.
