PIKE COUNTY, Ohio -- August 31, 2020 -- Fluor-BWXT is proud to support our local school districts as our students head back to school with our annual FBP School Supply Drive.

“We know this school year is going to be different than we’ve experienced before so we wanted to do everything we could to help teachers and students get started,” said JD Dowell, Site Project Director. “Our employees are always extremely generous and eager to help those in our community.”

With the donations, FBP was able to purchase hand sanitizer and 180 backpacks filled with supplies to distribute to eight schools.

In Jackson County, donations were dropped off at Southview Elementary and Northview Elementary schools.

“We really appreciate the support from the community and businesses like Fluor-BWXT,” said Northview Principal Melissa Ball. “With these donations we are able to free up other funding so we can focus on purchasing materials to keep our kids safe and healthy this year.”
