Savannah River Nuclear Solutions employees donate to Golden Harvest Food Bank

Savannah River Nuclear Solutions employees recently donated more than $20,000 and more than 8,000 pounds of food during its annual food drive for Golden Harvest Food Bank.

The food drive is one of the food bank's largest local fund-raisers.

"We're pleased to support Golden Harvest as they strive to end hunger throughout the Central Savannah River Area," said Dwayne Wilson, SRNS president and CEO. "With this donation, the employees at SRNS have demonstrated yet again their desire to continue to provide relief for those in need."

Travis McNeal, Executive Director, Golden Harvest Food Bank, was pleased to receive the checks and food.

"The poor economy has added an extra burden to our organization's goal to feed those in need, especially the working poor who, just a few years ago, did not need our services," McNeal said.  "SRNS's contributions greatly help us and always exceed our expectations.  We appreciate the generosity of our friends at SRS."

For every $1 dollar donated, Golden Harvest can provide $7.88 worth of food to someone in need.  The total SRNS monetary contribution will enable Golden Harvest employees to purchase $161,000 of food for their clients and partner agencies.
