Giving back has always been a part of the culture at Vulcan. Whether it is sponsoring a local youth sports team or hosting a food drive to support local agencies that help families in need, giving back is a core value we strongly believe in.
For over 40 years, Vulcan has proudly partnered with the United Way of Baldwin County (UWBC), an organization that works tirelessly to aid over 30 local, non-profit agencies such as the American Red Cross, the Bay Area Food Bank and YMCA of South Alabama.

The United Way of Baldwin County is a network of organizations that brings people together to tackle community issues. Our goal is to create lasting change by addressing the underlying causes to problems in the areas of health, education and financial stability. This is accomplished through a collaborative effort with our community partners and programs designed to address the needs of Baldwin County citizens.
Not only does Vulcan give to the UWBC as a corporation, but a large percentage of Vulcan employees give consistently via payroll deduction. This collective effort has allowed us to receive the award for one of the UWBC Leading Companies of 2014. We are honored to receive this award and view it as a challenge to exceed donations for 2015.
