Westinghouse SURE

Westinghouse Alumni united through Member & Community Services

Who We Are…

Once united as dedicated Westinghouse employees, Westinghouse SURE is comprised of retirees and alumni of Westinghouse who keep that connection alive today through the good work of its all-volunteer membership.  Now more than 800 members strong, we annually deliver more than 50,000 hours of volunteer service. Formed in 1989 as a non-profit, self-supporting organization in Western PA, our members include former employees of Westinghouse companies and successor companies and/or their spouses, regardless of where they live. Our organization continues to grow and evolve as we have now embarked on forming local SURE Chapters where there is concentration of Westinghouse Alumni and Retirees -- such as Columbia, SC & Florida -- so that members nationwide may enjoy the full advantages of Westinghouse SURE membership.

What We Do…

From the very start, SURE’s hallmark has been a commitment to volunteerism. Our members are dedicated to giving back to the local community through their volunteer work, and several have received the prestigious Jefferson Award for their efforts. We also recognize outstanding volunteers with SURE’s Spotlight Awards. While our volunteer spirit remains strong, SURE has renewed our focus on Member Services & Activities which includes a myriad of educational, social, and travel activities for our members to enjoy.

Why Westinghouse SURE?

  •       Giving Back – the chance to serve your local community by offering a helping hand to those in need.
  •       Staying Connected – meet old friends and make some new ones at a wide variety of member activities regardless of                location through local SURE Chapters now being formed.
