Habitat for Humanity

Our purpose is to empower people who build the future, and Habitat for Humanity is an organization that supports this purpose by building affordable homes for families. Gerdau employees throughout the U.S. participate in Habitat for Humanity builds several times each year.

Interfaith Shelter

Every month, employees from Gerdau’s Jackson, Michigan special steel office serve lunch at the Interfaith Shelter, which is a non-profit that provides emergency shelter and meals to people in need. The organization serves more than 65,000 meals annually.

United Way

Gerdau locations throughout the U.S. and Canada participate in United Way’s annual giving campaign. Employee donations support health, education and financial stability. Gerdau also participates in the United Way's Day of Caring, which is an initiative that involves hands-on volunteerism at various non-profit organizations.
