WE PARTNER WITH OUR COMMUNITIES
Since Hecla Greens Creek began mining operations 30 years ago, we’ve become a proud member of the Juneau community. Today, we are the region’s largest private employer and its largest tax payer. The salaries and taxes we pay contribute to making Juneau a better place to live – from enabling our employees to own good homes, to helping our local government provide essential services. These expenditures radiate throughout the community – from employees taking their families to locally owned restaurants to supporting seemingly unrelated jobs within local governments and businesses.
In addition, the men and women of Hecla Greens Creek are empowered to leverage the resources of our company to benefit the community – from making charitable contributions to local schools and nonprofit organizations, to rallying participation in volunteerism.
We annually support about 60 local and youth groups, art and education programs. We also proactively provide programs, marketing and information to help guide local residents into great careers at Hecla Greens Creek. We call that “Miner Strong” – and it’s something Hecla does at all its operations.
