Community Development

Employees in Safford, Arizona during a voluntary wilderness cleanup effort.

We also encourage our employees to engage and find new ways to transform their communities. Our High-Grade Helpers employee volunteer program is a company-sponsored initiative that propels the concept of giving back to the community.

Our Employee Volunteerism program presents and expands upon opportunities for employees to donate their time, experience and energy to meaningful programs and projects.  Examples of the causes we support include blood drives, women’s shelter repair, litter removal, safety education initiatives, food drives, serving meals to the homeless, and providing holiday gifts for children in need, among others.  Providing these volunteer opportunities allows us to partner with our employees in Transforming Tomorrow Together.

Through philanthropy and volunteerism, Freeport-McMoRan employees are dedicated to making our communities better places to live and work.
