Community organisations in the Harvey and Waroona Shires will benefit from the latest funding and time commitments from a major employer.

Alcoa has pledged $168,000 in grant funding and 1800 hours of volunteer service across its WA operation areas as part of the Alcoans Coming Together in Our Neighbourhoods program.

The latest recipients have been announced to coincide with National Volunteer Week and include schools, sporting clubs and charities focusing on health research and welfare.

The ACTION program works by employees banding together to deliver their services, following which the company will provide a financial contribution.

Corporate affairs director Jodie Read encouraged all employees to get involved with local volunteering.
