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 2012, Australian Alcoans donated more than 10,000 volunteer hours to community projects and not-for-profit organisations during the seventh annual volunteering month.

Alcoa’s worldwide ‘Month of Service’, an initiative of the Alcoa Foundation, is a time when we encourage employee volunteerism and celebrate the hundreds of employees who volunteer all year round.
 
During Month of Service 2012, employees participated in a wide range of activities including: painting at the Pinjarra Cemetery, gardening at the Serpentine Primary School, road clean up days, installing new equipment at West Murray Play Group, building extensions for Harvey Senior Citizens, Binningup Coast Care Clean up, cooking for Ronald McDonald House, clean up at K9 Dog Rescue, helping out with the Aged care games and cleaning up graffiti in the town of Pinjarra.
 
Alcoa of Australia Managing Director, Alan Cransberg said Month of Service never ceased to amaze him. "Our people just get out there into the community and make a huge difference to so many different organisations and individuals. What they have done in hours as crews, teams and families would have taken many organisations weeks, months or in some instances the jobs may never have got off the ground.”
 
“Last year we achieved more than a 40% engagement in Month of Service, which is a great result,” he said.
 
“Many Alcoans contribute year round in their communities. My desire is that other Alcoans that participated in the Month of Service see the value of the work they do and continue to do similar activities throughout the year.”
 
While Month of Service is the Company’s volunteering centrepiece, Alcoa 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 not-for-profit organisations through its ACTION and Bravo! programs.



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