A team of volunteers from Alcoa Power Generating Inc. spent Friday, May 8 working with Stanly County senior citizens as part of the United Way of Stanly County’s Day of Caring. The volunteer effort was part of an Alcoa ACTION grant that involves the donation of time and money to support local community causes.
Alcoa employees completed five landscaping and home repair projects through OASIS, a non-profit organization which provides Stanly County seniors with services that help maintain independence and dignity, prevent premature nursing home admittance, and enhance quality of life. The company will also provide a $1,500 grant to OASIS.
“We love working with the seniors in our community,” said Nicole Wright, the Alcoa Foundation’s local coordinator. “Our employees really enjoyed spending the day out in the community and the people we worked with were so appreciative.”
