ALCOA employees will once again roll up their sleeves and donate thousands of volunteer hours across the Peel region during the company’s 10th worldwide Month of Service.

Held every October, Alcoa’s signature volunteer initiative harnesses and celebrates employees’ enthusiasm to help not-for-profit organisations in their local communities.

Already employees have volunteered with the Mandurah Volunteer Water Rescue Group, Dwellingup Primary School and Pinjarra Waroona Youthcare.

The spirit of volunteering is embraced by the majority of Alcoa’s employees, including president Alcoa Refining and Australia Region Michael Parker.

“Month of Service is a great time of the year to be an Alcoa employee,” he said.

“Everyone joins together and contributes their time and expertise to support their local communities.

“It is a very rewarding experience.”

This year volunteering events have been arranged with many local organisations, including Riding for the Disabled, Pinjarra Primary School, K9 Rescue, Mandurah Historic Society, Coolibah Total Caring, Silver Chain, Mandurah Wildlife Rescue and Port Bouvard Surf Life Saving Club.
