KINGSTON, ONT. / October 25, 2016 – Novelis, the world’s premier producer of rolled aluminum and the global leader in aluminum recycling, will be impacting the Kingston community this month as part of the company’s global One Novelis volunteer month.
Novelis is completing volunteer projects this week at a local United Way agency, Girls Inc. Novelis employees worked with United Way KFLA to identify a project in the Kingston community. With Novelis’ support, the kitchen area will be upgraded to improve plumbing, electrical and overall aesthetics of the facility. This will include sanding and painting walls and cupboards, installing a new floor, and putting in new countertops.
Volunteers from Novelis will spend the week of October 24 completing tasks at the agency, located at 31 Weller Avenue in Kingston. Volunteers will be on site Monday-Friday from 9am-4pm.
“We look forward to our upcoming volunteer project in partnership with United Way and Girls Inc,” Courtney Maruno, the Novelis Neighbor Site Champion for Kingston, says. “The Novelis Neighbor program focuses on improving the quality of life for our employees and their families, the communities where we operate, and society as a whole.”
Novelis worked with Access Building Services to visit the site and determine what upgrades would be required for Girls Inc. to use their kitchen space as a teaching kitchen. They also helped obtain quotes for materials and other details of the proposed projects.
