Treasury Wines Estates (TWE) has dedicated a full week to supporting and volunteering with charities and non-profit organisations from around the world in the company's initiative called Global Volunteering Week.

TWE employees from all aspects of its operations and from offices around the world have allocated time and conducted charity work within the local community.

TWE CEO Michael Clarke said: "It's great to be able to get out and support some of the charities that make a real difference. I am proud of the efforts of our employees and it's heartening to see the positive impact we can all make by volunteering in our community."

TWE, one of the world largest wine companies, is participating in charity efforts throughout the world, most notably in Australia, New Zealand, United States, Asia and EMEA.

Nationally, the CEO Michael Clarke joined other staff from Melbourne in completing shifts with a local food charity called FareShare. 

FareShare's volunteers prepare around 20,000 meals a week that are distributed throughout Melbourne in an array of programs such as soup vans, homeless shelters, food banks and schools.

Some additional efforts within Australia include employees from the Victorian head office, including TWE Chairman Paul Rayner, assisting with litter collections, planting native flora and spending time with children charities throughout Melbourne's metropolitan area.

Some global efforts include Meals on Wheels of San Francisco, the Department of Conservation and Keep Waitakere Beautiful in New Zealand, Napa Valley CanDo, Willing Hearts and Second Harvest in Asia and Forty Hall Vineyard and Thames 21 in Europe.
