Community Involvement & McAlpin Industries
McAlpin Industries understands the importance of giving back and strives to continuously find ways to meet the needs of our local community. The Associates of McAlpin Industries are dedicated, generous and active in the community. We are proud of the contributions of time and money that our Associates give to the various charities we support.
Each year McAlpin Industries works with United Way to raise funds for the many local charities supported by United Way of Greater Rochester. We are proud that, for the last 6 years, we have increased the dollar amount and the number of Associates who donated. This past year, we had 70% of our Associates contribute. Together with our corporate contribution, we raised over $25,000 for the United Way. No wonder we are very proud!
McAlpin Industries' next-door neighbor, Rochester Midland Corporation, began the One Community Program in 2002 and McAlpin enthusiastically joined along with other local businesses a few years later. The One Community program is designed to reach out to the kids in the neighborhood on and around Hollenbeck Street. The purpose of One Community is to develop a stronger bond with the families in the community in hopes of making our neighborhood a safer place to live and work. To make connections with the families, the One Community businesses set up a variety of events and programs for the children to participate in. We have had many events including Bug Day, Zoo Day, Fire Safety Day, Mounted Patrol Day, Carnival Day and Back to School Giveaway Day. Our Associates help to coordinate and entertain the families and donate gently used school items, games, toys, bikes, etc. for the children.
McAlpin Industries holds a charity golf tournament each year to raise funds for the Adopt-A-Family Holiday Assistance program. The holidays can be a challenging time for many families that are struggling to meet their basic needs for food, clothing and shelter. The Adopt-A-Family program allows us to donate a gift basket of food for a holiday meal, gift cards to the grocery store and holiday gifts for each member of two or more families each year.
Read Across America
McAlpin Industries participates in Read Across America's Annual Reading Motivation and Awareness program. Read Across America is a program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss. Members from our Senior Management Team can be spotted donning the famous Dr. Seuss hat at local schools while they read to students. It is a day they all look forward to every year!

During the City of Rochester's Clean Sweep, McAlpin Industries Associates join the city crews in cleaning up the surrounding neighborhood streets. Participants receive a Clean Sweep t-shirt, get assigned to a team and then go out to hit the streets. Volunteers contribute by raking and bagging debris from the streets and sidewalks and placing bulk refuse on the curb. Last year, more than 5,000 volunteers from throughout the area took part and collected over 1,500 tons of debris. Clean Sweep is our way of contributing time and energy to make our community and city look and feel better.
