SIX employees from Alcoa’s Pinjarra Refinery have joined forces with the St Vincent De Paul Society’s op-shop in Pinjarra to dust off the decorations to get the store ready for Christmas.

The activity took place as part of the company’s volunteering event Month of Service in October.

The volunteers spent the afternoon sorting through boxes, organising gifts and decorations, stocktaking tents by ensuring all parts were present and keeping Joey the store kangaroo company.

Manager Barbara Anderson said there was always a lot of work to be done at the shop, from sorting through donations, to maintaining store operations and even serving customers.
