The contributions of individual UCOR employees supplement corporate donations to local charitable agencies and educational institutions. The company also conducts an annual United Way campaign, raising funds to support United Way agencies that assist citizens throughout our region.
Much of UCOR’s community involvement stems from close working relationships with the company’s labor partners—the Knoxville Building and Construction Trades Council and the Atomic Trades and Labor Council.
In addition to financial contributions, area communities also benefit from the time and talent of UCOR managers and employees who serve on various boards and agencies and lend their experience and expertise to key organizations throughout the region. These include the Children’s Museum of Oak Ridge; East Tennessee Economic Council; Foothills Land Conservancy; Legacy Parks Foundation; Methodist Medical Center; Oak Ridge Public Schools Education Foundation; and United Way.
Employees have also donated their skills and services to the construction of a hospitality house to serve out-of-town patients and their families seeking treatment at the Methodist Medical Center in Oak Ridge.
