April was National Volunteer Month in the US and Lafarge North America employees devoted almost 1500 hours supporting more than 20 environmental and community improvement projects.
Close to 300 employees took part in volunteering activities, including highway cleanup projects, disaster relief support and support for local food banks.
"We are proud of everyone who has been participating in volunteering activities, not only during the month of April, but since the start of the year," said John Stull, president and CEO, Lafarge U.S. "Lafarge is committed to supporting our neighbours by devoting time and providing donations to the programs and services most important to the communities in which we work and live."
Lafarge is committed to giving back to the communities where it operates, 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.
