Alcoa Fastening Systems and the Alcoa Foundation are strong supporters of the American Red Cross and its mission to provide relief to disaster victims and help people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies.
As a Red Cross Disaster Responder Member, Alcoa is part of an elite group of corporations nationwide that understand the critical role of pre-investment in disaster response so Red Cross volunteers can respond to disasters at a moment’s notice.
Additionally, Alcoa has been a generous and prominent supporter of the Los Angeles Region’s PrepareSoCal Campaign. Through financial contributions, blood donations, and numerous employee engagement activities, Alcoa Foundation and Alcoa Fastening Systems help the Red Cross assist those in need.
Alcoa is a National Disaster Responder Member at the $250,000 level, and here in Los Angeles, the Alcoa Fastening Systems’ support has included an additional $19,000 donation that helped launch Red Cross PrepareCarson.
The company has also hosted an American Red Cross Sesame Street puppet show for a local elementary school so that children can learn the important lesson of preparedness in a fun and non-threatening way. Additionally, it has held multiple “build-a-com¬fort-kit” parties where employees pack personal care necessities in Red Cross comfort kits that are distributed to homeless veterans.
Through all of these generous efforts, Alcoa has become an invaluable partner in helping to promote the mission of the American Red Cross to create lasting, positive change here in Los Angeles and in communities across the country.
