Fluor-BWXT Employees Surpass 75,000 Volunteer Hours

PIKE COUNTY, Ohio -- February 20, 2019 -- Since the start of Fluor-BWXT’s Portsmouth’s (FBP) contract in 2011, FBP employees have given their time and energy to provide more than 75,000 volunteer hours to help various organizations in Jackson, Pike, and Ross and Scioto counties.

Beckie Thomas-Kent (FBP) collects a donation from Steve James (FBP) at the gate for Ports annual “Pink out Day” is held each October. The funds raised go to local cancer agencies in Jackson, Ross and Scioto County.

“One of Fluor-BWXT’s core missions at Piketon is to work with and help the community, and also drive economic development,” said Bob Smith, FBP’s Site Project Director. “I am very pleased to see all of the volunteer help from the site.”
The three major events that make up the majority of FBP’s volunteer hours are the Employee Giving Campaign (EGC), the Christmas Gifts for Children Program and the Ports Annual Pink-Out Day.

“My dedication to FBP’s Annual Pink-Out Day stems from my experience when my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1997,” said Mary Ellen Rooney, an Engineering Administrative Assistant.  She has been with FBP for seven years and is an active volunteer. 

Other volunteer events include FBP’s annual blood drive, the Department of Energy’s (DOE) South Central Ohio Regional Science Bowl, and the DOE Science Alliance which draws nearly 1,900 registered students, teachers and chaperones from southern Ohio high schools.
