Volunteering campaign Holcim (Rus) in Kolomna

May 05, 2012

On April 28th, 2012, volunteering campaign in the frame of “Together for comunities” Holcim Group initiative was held in Kolomna (Moscow region). Holcim (Rus) employees spent the day helping local community in Kolomna town – one of the Company’s operational sites.

On April 28th, 2012 Holcim (Rus) together with civil community “Nekvasnye Patriots” took part in all-town “subbotnik”. The Company employees along with activists planted fir-trees and bushes. The purpose of the campaign was to separate the new residential district from the rail-road by green area. In spite of long road from Moscow to Kolomna, the Company’s employees started work with great enthusiasm. The result exceeded all the expectations – Holcim (Rus) and “Nekvasnye patriots” succeeded in planting 30 fir-trees and 500 bushes.

Yet, it was not the end. In the afternoon Holcim (Rus) employees moved to “Shurovsky cement” to take part along with plant colleagues in the next campaign in flash mob format. 200 participants dressed in T-shirts and bandanas of various colours lined up forming shapes and figures from a height. You will be able to watch the flash-mob video, dedicated to Holcim’s Centennial and volunteering initiative at Holcim (Rus) social networs pages. The premiere is planned on June 1st, 2012. Stay tuned!

“Volskcement” also didn’t stay away from volunteering. On April 28th in Volsk the second campaign was held among plant employees. In total the Company is planning to organize about 38 campaigns at operational sites at the period April – September 2012.
