Each year, the Fluor-BWXT Employee Morale Committee purchases turkeys and hams from locally-owned Ritchie’s Marketplace to present to employees during the holiday season. Any that are not picked up are distributed to be donated.

“We know 2020 has been a year of challenges, so we are happy to not only provide our employees with a show of our appreciation, but also support a local business and provide a holiday meal to those who need it,” said JD Dowell, FBP Site Project Director. “We appreciate the local charities and church groups working with our volunteers to help get these donations to families in our area.”

The Employee Morale Committee volunteers personally delivered the turkeys and hams to the Waverly COPE Program, Portsmouth Homeless Shelter, Catholic Services, Firebrick Christian Baptist Church, Huntington Local Schools Kindness Cupboard, Bethesda Christian Church, Be the Blessing Outreach, and Southern Ohio Domestic Violence Shelter.
