Locker Project of the Month

Ramsey Elementary
The Coeur Group would like to enthusiastically thank Lola Hagadone for her generous sponsorship that funded the construction and installation of our newest locker. Students at Ramsey Elementary will now have the ability to discreetly procure clothing and hygiene essentials that may not be available to them from home. The locker will be supported by a motivated and philanthropic collaboration from our community.
The Coeur Group had been working with Ramsey administration to identify the best location for the locker system within the school. With input from staff and teachers a private room was identified that is centrally located in the school but will offer students the ability to ‘shop’ in private. Matt Anderson of Tapley Cabinet Works custom designed the cabinet layout to maximize space in the room while providing multiple uses for the area.
Ramsey communicated unique needs of their students after consulting with their parent organization. Children are often looking for healthy snacking alternatives when they are not being provided from home. With that in mind a portion of the locker is set aside as a pantry with drawers and shelves earmarked for non-perishable snacks. They also identified a trend that warmer clothes seem to be in demand often. Portions of the cabinets were set up with hanging rods to hang coats and heavy sweatshirts for the kids.
Going forward areas of need for Ramsey will include winter wear, hygiene essentials, healthy snacks, and clothes. Ramsey leadership has assembled a team to manage the day to day operation of the locker. This collaboration includes a generous local church, parents of current students, and a local civic organization. 
The Coeur Group is proud to help kick off this new addition to the school and is grateful for cooperation from Ramsey and its Principal, Crystal Kubista. For further information or to help support the maintenance and operation of the locker contact locker ambassador Brian Babb at

What is your current job and tell us a little about what you do? 
I am a Mortgage loan officer for our local Mountain West Bank. I try to provide my customers with the highest quality mortgage programs while providing the service that they deserve. I would like to consider myself a partner in each customer’s home financing plan, and work hard to assist each customer through this important step in their lives.
How long have you been a member of The Coeur Group and what is your best experience so far? 
I have been a member of the Coeur Group for about 5 years now and have spent 2 years as the treasurer for the group. It is tough to describe just one. I enjoyed driving the fire truck in our lighting parade as well as volunteering at the Children’s Village and wringing the bell in the Fred Meyer entrance for St. Vincent de Paul.
What's your favorite moment of your career to this point?
Going through the loan process with any first time home buyer is great. It is all new to them and one of the biggest things they are going to do in their lives.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends on the lake as well as hiking with my dogs.
Why would you recommend The Coeur Group to a colleague?
I would recommend the Coeur Group because it is a great group of guys doing great things for the community. I know that through the generosity of donors and the work of our group installing lockers into our local schools, many kids are able to experience things that they would otherwise not have.
