Aiken, S.C. - Savannah River Remediation (SRR) added a donation of $10,000 to the United Way of the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) 2016 campaign, which came up short of its $3.5 million goal.
At the United Way of the CSRA’s annual meeting last month, representatives from the organization announced the grand total of $3,312,613 raised for the 2016 campaign. At the meeting, SRR was recognized for raising more than $100,000 toward the campaign.
SRR President and Project Manager Tom Foster responded with a donation from the Company.
“The United Way of the CSRA funds dozens of important and necessary programs in the Augusta area that help thousands of people in need,” Foster said. “As members of the community, it is our duty to come alongside the organization to help them meet the needs of their programs.”
Each year, SRR completes a United Way Employee Campaign to benefit United Way agencies in the local area. SRR raised $300,923 during the 2016 campaign, and $100,650 of the campaign total was designated to the United Way of the CSRA. This donation was presented at SRR’s annual United Way Campaign celebration in October 2016. The funds were raised through year-round SRR employee fundraising events; annual softball, golf, and bowling tournaments; and pledge cards.
SRR Chief Operating Officer and Deputy Project Manager Mark Schmitz presented a check for the additional $10,000 to LaVerne Gold, President of the United Way of the CSRA, and Rina Powell, Senior Director of Resource Development.
The United Way of the CSRA funds more than 40 programs in the Augusta area.
