If you have not heard of the Flint Water Crisis, it’s a serious problem affecting the people of Flint, Michigan. Their source of water is contaminated by high levels of lead from rusting pipes. Between 6,000 – 12,000 children have been affected by high levels of lead and may experience a range of serious health problems. What these people need is water for drinking, cooking, and bathing.

Topson recently donated 200 cases of bottled water (24 bottles per case) through Douglas Water Conditioning and the cases were delivered to a local firehouse in Flint where residents were able to pick up a case of water.

We received the attached letter thanking us for our support in their time of need. A special shoutout goes to Jodi Swansey for bringing the awareness to Topson and for organizing the donation!


13 of us slept out on the ground in LA on Friday to raise awareness and raise funds for homeless youth. This event also took place in Anchorage, Atlanta, NYC, Newark, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, and Philadelphia. We met a very positive and inspirational young man who told us his sad story of going from home to home in the foster care system and getting high off meth with his mom because that’s the only way he knew how to bond with her. He was homeless for some time and is now living at the shelter. Oh, and he suffers from schizophrenia. This boy has had a rough life, but when we asked him how he remains so positive, he answered, “There are people out there who have it a lot worse than me.” He is so right. We have to count our blessings. I am happy to say that as of today Topson has raised $16,355 for Covenant House! Thank you to everyone who donated!

It's not to late to donate if you haven't already!


Topson Downs is participating in the Olive Crest Easter Basket Drive! Baskets are due March 21, 2016

Items could include: bubbles, small toys, jump ropes, movie passes, fast food/clothing gift cards, baby items, easter candy and stuffed animals. 


The Tuesday before Thanksgiving, several Topson Employees volunteered at Covenant House.

Thanks to all who donated their time to help the homeless youth and community! Topson Downs also donated $10,000 to the institution which provides shelter, food, health services, and educational classes to youth who have been left homeless due to aging out of the foster care system, for being gay or lesbian, or for trying to escape drug- and alcohol-addicted parents.


Topson recently donated $25,000 to the Red Cross for relief efforts in the deadly Nepal earthquake that happed in April. One of the Red Cross reps, Patti Hartman, stopped by today to present a plaque commemorating our donation.


This past Saturday we had about 30 Topson volunteers come help out with the Heal The Bay Clean Up at Will Rodgers State Beach.  There were over 400 volunteers all together and over 70 pounds of trash picked up.  All in all it was a great turnout!

Covenant House Sleep Out

Last Friday, Topson employees participated in a Sleep Out to raise awareness for Covenant House and homeless youth.  The employees raised almost $5k, and Topson has agreed to generously match the remaining balance for a total of $10k donated from the company.
