Employees of Treasury Wine Estates (TWE) are out in their local communities this week as part of the company's second annual global volunteering week.

TWE staff are supporting charities and not-for-profit organisations as part of the global effort. Building on the success of the inaugural volunteering week last year, the company is once again supporting its employees in volunteering a day of their time to activities that can make a real difference.

Corporate responsibility manager, Cecelia Burgman said: “The goodwill generated among employees and local charities through our volunteering efforts last year was tremendous. More importantly we contributed to some vital causes that support people in need. We recognise the important role we can play in giving back to the community and we’re excited to be building on our efforts from last year.”

Every function and region of the Company is involved in the initiative, with employees taking allocated volunteering leave to work with a wide range of charitable partners. 

This volunteering week is a key part of TWE’s Corporate Responsibility program, which aims to ensure the company “is a positive force within the communities in which it operates”. 

Organisations partnering with TWE in 2016 for volunteering activities across the Company’s regions include: Goulburn Valley Catchment Management Authority, Barooga Community Botanical Gardens, Fairview Lodge Animal Shelter, Bedford Industries Packaging, Port Phillip Eco Centre, Cleland Wildlife Park, Foodbank SA & WA in Australia; Auckland City Mission, Muriwai Environmental Trust and the Twin Streams Project in New Zealand; Redwood Food Bank and River Clean Up in the Americas; Bo Charity Foundation and the Keep Singapore Clean Movement in Asia; and Forty Hall Vineyard and Thames 21 in the UK.
