By |  May 31, 2013

Lafarge donated $23,000 to support and grow a volunteer program that is currently active making one of its former quarries in Winnipeg, Canada, a recreational center.

A presentation was made as part of a breakfast in celebration of National Volunteer Week. The event recognized the contribution of FortWhyte’s Alive program and its core volunteers, acknowledging those who have contributed more than 100 hours of their time in the past year.

“There is a great story for industry here and one we are happy and proud to share,” says Bill Elliot, CEO of FortWhyte Alive.

More than 380 volunteers contribute close to 22,500 hours of work each year to the Fort Whyte Centre. They are greeters, education leaders, guides, farmers, naturalists, cheerleaders and more.
