Celebrating Safety and Community Giving

Alcoa Fastening Systems in Simi Valley, California, USA hosted an employee celebration to recognize the plant's outstanding safety record as well as to present Alcoa Foundation grants to the community. The location has had zero recordables and zero lost work days, year to date. In conjunction with the safety celebration, community organizations were invited to the plant for grant presentations. A $10,000 grant was presented to the MEND Organization (Meeting Each Need with Dignity) of Pacoima and a $7,500 grant was invested in the Arts in Education Council of Reseda. In 2005, the AFS location invested a total of $74,650 in the community through grants and matching gifts by Alcoa Foundation. Grants previously presented this year included $30,0000 to the Simi Valley Hospital Foundation; $7,500 to the Simi Valley Boys and Girls Club; $10,000 to the Simi Valley Education Foundation; $3,000 to the Simi Valley Samaritan Center; $2,500 to the Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center; and $2,500 to the Tony DiRaimondo Foundation.
