March 13, 2018 – Kloeckner Metals, Roswell, Georgia, will launch a new program KloecknerCares, which will enable the company to give back to those communities where their employees live and work. The program will also serve as a way for employees to get involved in local organizations, and help those in need through donations and volunteering. Kloeckner Metals’ local branches have a history of helping local community causes including:
Tulsa Branch – partnered with local elementary school and organized a clothes’ drive and a reading buddy program
Hawaii Branch – participated in a Toys for Tots campaign
Indianapolis Branch – coordinated a food drive
Individual branches can continue to support local organizations based on the needs of their communities, as well as come up with their own ideas of how to give back effectively. In 2019, Kloeckner Metals plans to identify a companywide charitable opportunity.
“Kloeckner Metals is not just a business – it’s family,” said John Ganem, CEO of Kloeckner Metals. “It’s filled with people who care about each other and their communities, and we’ve implemented this program to help causes that matter to our employees.”
Ganem says beginning in the second quarter of this year, their headquarters which is located in Roswell, GA will support several organizations and initiatives on a local level, which include:
Sponsor a book drive for Esther Jackson Elementary, a Title 1 school. The goal is to collect enough books to send at least one home with each of the school’s 700 students during the summer break.
Sponsor a back to school supplies drive.
Collect donations for a men’s and women’s shelter.
