Aiken, S.C. - Even though SRR employees have been engaging in fundraising events for the United Way all year, the official Employee Campaign kicked off in early August. Employees really stepped up this year and out-did themselves with donations, said Mike Hubbard, SRR United Way Campaign Chair.
“This year’s slogan was ‘Reaching Out, Lifting Up,’ and our folks definitely did that,” Hubbard said. “People participated in sports tournaments, cooked food for fundraisers, and gave generously through pledge cards. There were so many different ways people gave their time and resources.”
During last week’s SRR United Way celebration, SRR, the liquid waste contractor at the Savannah River Site (SRS), presented ceremonial checks to surrounding United Way agencies. Agencies in Aiken, Allendale, Bamberg/Colleton/Hampton, Anderson, Barnwell, Edgefield, McDuffie, and Screven Counties, the United Way of the CSRA, and the United Way of the Midlands organizations will all receive donations from SRR.
Several SRR employees were recognized for their roles during the campaign. Amy Joslin served as the Executive Sponsor. The Volunteer of the Year was presented to Donnie Thaxton. Other employees honored were Robin Fields as Coordinator of the Year, Kim Hauer as Manager of the Year, and Teresa Sheppard for the Unsung Hero Award. Maddie Blair and Colleen Welch jointly received the President’s Award.
SRR is the liquid waste contactor at SRS for the U.S. Department of Energy. SRR is composed of a team of companies led by AECOM with partners Bechtel National, CH2M and BWX Technologies. Critical subcontractors for the contract are AREVA, EnergySolutions and URS Professional Solutions.
