Employees from Treasury Wine Estates will be supporting charities and not-for-profit organisations in their local communities next week as part of the company’s third annual Global Volunteering Week.
Running from May 15-19, 2017, employees will take allocated volunteering leave to work with a wide range of charitable partners helping with activities such as cooking meals, planting trees, cleaning up litter and packing food hampers.
“Our corporate volunteering program is one of the ways Treasury Wine Estates gives back to the communities in which we operate,” said Global Public Affairs Director, Cecelia Burgman.
“Volunteering is an important part of working at Treasury Wine Estates and it provides employees with the opportunity to contribute to important causes and support people in need.
“Global Volunteering Week provides a focal point for our volunteering efforts and it is also a great opportunity for our employees to roll up their sleeves and work together, generating goodwill for the organisations and our teams.
“Since we started Global Volunteering Week in 2015, we have partnered with more than 100 charitable organisations around the world and we are looking forward to building on our volunteering efforts again this year.”
