Gerdau gives back to our surrounding communities. We have committed employees who organize hands-on volunteer activities. We also support food banks, shelters, research organizations and educational institutions, as well as other non-profits.
We believe that one of the best ways to improve our future is by partnering with organizations that boost childhood development. Gerdau works closely with Junior Achievement, an organization that provides students with the training, materials, and support necessary to bolster their chances for success.
Each month, employees from Gerdau’s Jackson, Michigan office serve lunch at the Interfaith Shelter, which is a non-profit that provides emergency shelter and meals to people in need. The organization serves more than 65,000 meals each year.
Gerdau locations throughout the U.S. and Canada participate in United Way’s annual giving campaign. Employee donations support health, education and financial stability. Day of Caring is another way we contribute. This activity involves hands-on volunteerism at various non-profits.
