Kloeckner Metals: Giving Back to the Community

Written by Sandy Williams

Kloeckner Metals is launching a new program called KloecknerCares to find ways to support the communities where employees live and work. The program will serve as a vehicle for employees to become involved in local organizations and help those in need through donations and volunteering.

Kloeckner branches can continue to support the needs of local organizations, as well as develop ideas for how the company can give back effectively to the community. Kloeckner Metals plans on identifying a companywide charitable opportunity in 2019.

“Kloeckner Metals is not just a business – it’s family,” said John Ganem, CEO of Kloeckner Metals. “It’s filled with people who care about each other and their communities, and we’ve implemented this program to help causes that matter to our employees.”

Past involvement by Kloeckner Metal’s local branches include:

  • Hawaii Branch – participated in a Toys for Tots campaign
  • Indianapolis Branch – coordinated a food drive

Beginning in the second quarter, Kloeckner Metals headquarters in Roswell, Ga., will support several local organizations and initiatives, including:

  • a book drive for Esther Jackson Elementary, a Title 1 school, that will send at least one book home with each of the school’s 700 students during the summer break
  • a back-to-school supplies drive
  • and collecting donations for a men’s and women’s shelter
