AIKEN, S.C. (March 30, 2023) — Savannah River Mission Completion (SRMC) employees have volunteered their time to help their neighbors-in-need through the annual United Way Project Volunteers In Service In Our Neighborhoods (VISION).
The Project VISION Day of Caring on March 24, 2023, offered SRMC employees an opportunity to help others through community service projects at United Way agencies, such as Children's Place, Brothers & Sisters of Aiken County, and the Cumbee Center. Volunteers also served at private residences that were designated by United Way.
SRMC's 2023 Project Vision coordinator Bobbi Stavru said more than 70 employees fanned out to volunteer for projects ranging from minor home repairs to beautification projects.
"Without the support of our project leaders and volunteers, this ‘Day of Caring’ would not be possible,” Stavru said. “Our employees generously offer their time and talents to help those in need. It’s an act of kindness that has a tremendous effect on someone’s life.”
This year's projects included yard work, pressure-washing, along with minor repairs and painting for three United Way agencies. SRMC employees also helped move the United Way of Aiken County to its new location on Morgan Street.
Work for local residences included repairing a deck, storm door, and vinyl siding. Employees also provided a wheelchair ramp for a United Way client.
SRMC President and Program Manager Dave Olson commended the staff for taking the time to benefit others.
"We consider ourselves to be members of this community--not just a company,"
Olson said. "It makes me proud to see so many of our employees willing to give of
themselves to help those who need assistance.”
SRMC comprises parent company BWX Technologies, Inc. with partners Amentum and Fluor. Its team brings the capabilities necessary to accelerate cleanup at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site through safe nuclear operations, optimized and integrated mission execution, and strong corporate governance.
