Vulcan Materials Employees Set New Company Record For United Way Contribution Participation

Stocks in this article: VMC

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Sept. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Vulcan Materials Company (NYSE:VMC) has set a new company record for United Way participation with over 85% of employees at Vulcan's corporate headquarters contributing to United Way of Central Alabama's 2013 Live United GENEROS-City fundraising campaign.  Designated a "Pacesetter Company" by United Way, Vulcan's employee participation level far exceeds the company's previous United Way fundraising campaigns and is well above the average participation levels compared to other companies.


Speaking at the end-of-campaign-celebration, Vulcan Chairman and CEO, Don James applauded employees.  "Our teams did a phenomenal job supporting this year's United Way campaign."  James continued, "Out of 20 teams, nine teams achieved 100% participation and three teams achieved over 90%.  This is an outstanding performance."

During the recently concluded campaign, a steering committee comprised of department representatives rallied co-workers to participate as teams to raise money for United Way-supported agencies.  The steering committee held a kick-off event, provided regular correspondences and team updates, awarded recognitions, and encouraged a little friendly competition.

"We appreciate the dedicated employees of Vulcan Materials and value the longstanding corporate partnership we have with the company," said Greg King, Birmingham President, Iberia Bank and 2013 Pacesetter Campaign Chairman.  "Like many of our Pacesetter Companies, Vulcan sets the pace of how to effectively run an employee campaign to support the community.  We thank Vulcan and our many supporters for helping us achieve our fundraising campaign goal and raising over $13 million."
