“Fluor Cares” was the motto for Fluor employees and family members who volunteered with Keep Irving Beautiful (KIB) for a cleanup at Bird’s Fort Trail Park on Oct. 19.
Eighteen volunteers collected 125 pounds of trash and 45 pounds of recyclable materials in the park. Bird’s Fort Trail Park is part of Irving’s Campion Trail System.
The company’s employee volunteer program began in 1976 and was later renamed to “Fluor Cares” in 2010. Last year, Fluor employees volunteered more than 52,000 hours through this program.
“Fluor Corporation is a great example of a company giving back to the community where they do business,” said KIB Board Member Chuck Kirk. “KIB is fortunate to have such an active and involved corporate presence here in Irving that places a high value on community service.”
Fluor Corporation is a global engineering, procurement, construction and maintenance company headquartered in Irving.
