AIKEN, S.C. (May 2, 2018) — Savannah River Remediation (SRR) employees participated in the 2018 Project Serve Day of Caring, supporting the United Way of the Central Savannah River Area.
Thirteen SRR employees gathered on April 27, 2018, to volunteer for community projects. The volunteers split into two groups to serve at the Jud C. Hickey Center for Alzheimer’s Care, an in-home respite care program for those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, and the Georgia-Carolina Council Boy Scouts of America. Aiming to revitalize the interior and exterior of the facilities, SRR employees completed tasks that included landscaping, pressure washing, painting, and other repair work.
Leading the volunteer efforts, SRR Facility Engineer Keisha Martin said it is important that people raise their hands for opportunities to help non-profit organizations that greatly benefit from volunteers lending a hand.
“Many of these non-profit organizations have enough resources to serve their mission but not enough to revitalize their facilities, and today we were able to shoulder those tasks,” Martin said. “I’m thankful to work alongside coworkers at Savannah River Remediation who consistently volunteer to spend a day outside of work helping the community.”
SRR is a team of companies led by AECOM with partners Bechtel National, CH2M, and BWX Technologies, Inc. Critical subcontractors for the contract are AREVA, Atkins, and AECOM N&E Technical Solutions.
