AIKEN, S.C. – The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) liquid waste contractor Savannah River Remediation (SRR) has donated $6,000 to the Salvation Army to help cover needs in three counties – Aiken, Allendale and Barnwell counties in South Carolina.
The Salvation Army, which provides numerous services to those who need help, will determine the best use of the money in their many programs.
Ken Rueter, SRR President and Project Manager, said SRR consistently supports the Salvation Army for the good work they do for people.
"The Salvation Army diligently works all year to meet the needs of many," Rueter said. "For SRR, it is our pleasure to reach out and help our communities, and the donation is our way of supporting the Salvation Army during the holiday season."
In addition to the donation, SRR provided employees who rang the bell at the Red Kettles, seen at numerous locations across the area. The SRR volunteers rang the bells and collected money at the Wal-Mart on Whiskey Road in Aiken and the Wal-Mart in Barnwell.
