Worldwide Month of Service
Every October is Month of Service
Alcoa employees across the world proudly do their bit each October to make a difference in the communities where they work, rest and play.
In 2015, some 2000 Australian employees donated more than 10,000 volunteer hours to community projects and non-profit organisations during the tenth annual Month of Service.
Employees participated in a wide range of activities including: building bird enclosures for Mandurah Wildlife Rescue; removing toxic weeds from the surrounding native bush of North Dandalup Primary School; giving the walls of Silver Chain Respite Cottage in Rockingham a fresh coat of paint; helping St Vincent de Paul Society employees get the Pinjarra Vinnies Shop ready for Christmas; joining forces with Soroptimist International to create quilts for local foster kids and baby blankets for Balinese hospitals; installing a bike path at Orelia Primary School; and building wooden pews for Rockingham Theatre.
The spirit of volunteering is embraced by all Alcoa employees, from the Chairman and Managing Director Michael Parker, to his lead team, site operators and administrators.

Michael was among thousands of Alcoa employees who rolled up their sleeves at 100-plus projects across Australia - find out more here.
While Month of Service is Alcoa's volunteering centrepiece, employees are heavily involved in their communities all year round. Throughout the year, the company matches employees’ volunteer time with financial grants to their chosen non-profit organisations through its ACTION and Bravo! programs.

Each year Alcoa employees in Australia volunteer more than 90,000 hours
