The Christmas season will be a little more enjoyable for some Central Savannah River Area's less fortunate children this year thanks to the continuing generosity of Savannah River Remediation (SRR) employees.

Participating in the Savannah River Site (SRS) Salvation Army Angel and U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots programs, SRR employees donated over 3,800 toys, and provided gifts for 117 adopted angels.

The Toys for Tots and Angel drives were spearheaded by SRR construction employees. Jim Delaney, SRR Construction Manager, called the employee contributions extraordinary.

"No matter what pressures we encounter, challenges we face or stress we have in our everyday lives, you have once again showed that nothing will stand in the way of your giving back to the community," Delaney told members of the construction workforce recently during the final collection of toys. "Your efforts never cease to amaze me. This is extraordinary."

SRR employees have participated in the Salvation Army Angel and U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots campaigns every year since becoming the SRS liquid waste contractor in 2009 and for many years previously as members of the legacy liquid waste organization at SRS.

Employees got a jump start on toy collections in October when 158 toys were collected during the "SRR'S Got Talent" talent show, which was a first-ever event kicking off the Marine Corp Reserve Toys for Tots campaign.

SRS is owned by the U.S. Department of Energy. The SRS Liquid Waste contract is managed by SRR, a team of companies led by URS Corp. with partners Bechtel National, CH2M Hill and Babcock & Wilcox. Critical subcontractors for the contract are AREVA, Energy Solutions and URS Professional Solutions.
