THIS month, Alcoa employees will roll up their sleeves and donate thousands of volunteer hours to local not-for-profit organisations.

Every October volunteers substitute their daily duties with painting, weeding, mulching, building playgrounds and more.

This year, volunteering events have been arranged with local organisations.

These include Greenfields Primary School, the Peel Aged Care Games, Mandurah Community Garden, K9 Rescue and Port Bouvard Surf Life Saving Club.

Alcoa managing director Michael Parker said Alcoa employees were known for their community commitment.

“October is another opportunity to make a difference,” he said.

“It is a time of year that many Alcoa employees, including myself, look forward to.

“It gives us the opportunity to join together and thank our communities for their support.

“It’s always a very rewarding experience.”
