InterCement gathers 800 volunteers and organizes structural renovations of a school, healthcare units and an addiction treatment clinic
The InterCement unit in São Miguel dos Campos, in the state of Alagoas, on August 24 took part in the sixth edition of "Doing Good Day," a corporate volunteer event that gathers all of the companies of the Camargo Corrêa Group. Around 800 volunteers are expected for the event in São Miguel dos Campos. The activities will benefit 4,000 people in the community.
InterCement employee volunteers, their family members and friends will carry out structural renovations, such as painting, changing doors and windows, plus electrical and plumbing repairs in the buildings of four institutions in town. These improvements will benefit the entire community. The work will be carried out at the Escola Municipal Desembargador José Fernando Lima Souza; Casa Shalon (treatment center for drug addicts); Posto de Saúde Dona Floraci Soares dos Santos; and 'Santa Casa de Misericórdia de São Miguel dos Campos' healthcare facility.
According Christianne Acioli, HR analyst for InterCement, each year the Doing Good Day gains new members. "The actions were so successful last year and helped so many people, that this year we recorded an increase in the number of volunteers. I'm sure it will be an unforgettable day for São Miguel dos Campos."
The Doing Good Day is an annual event organized by the Camargo Corrêa Institute (ICC) since 2009. In 2014, a total of 13 companies present in 15 countries are participating in the Doing Good Day. Around 22,000 volunteers are expected to be involved.
