Lafarge North America employees devoted close to 1,500 hours to Community Service during National Volunteer Month in April. According to a press release:
During National Volunteer Month, employees participated in several Adopt-a-Highway cleanup projects, including one in Paulding, Ohio, where 26 employees volunteered for eight hours each, totaling 208 hours of devoted time. In Smithfield, Ky., 120 employees from the Three Rivers Quarry also participated in an Adopt-a-Highway project, resulting in the highest number of volunteers to participate in one project during the month. Other projects included disaster relief support for those affected by tornadoes in Illinois, Earth Day cleanup projects, and support for local food banks.
Lafarge is committed to giving back to the communities where they operate, and volunteering is an important part of these efforts. On a global scale, Lafarge Group's goal is to contribute one million volunteer hours per year across all Lafarge operations by 2020.
