Fluor-BWXT Kicks Off Annual Employee Giving Campaign to Support Local Communities in Southern Ohio

PIKETON, Ohio -- September 6, 2018 -- Fluor-BWXT Portsmouth (FBP) is pleased to announce the kickoff of the 2018 Employee Giving Campaign at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Portsmouth site in Piketon.  FBP employees as well as other site contractors will join forces over the month of September to raise funds for those in need in Jackson, Pike, Ross and Scioto counties. 

Fluor-BWXT hosts multiple cookouts for employees during the month of September to raise funds for the annual Employee Giving Campaign.  In 2017, more than $177,000 was raised for charitable organizations in Jackson, Pike, Ross and Scioto Counties.

Last year, more than $177,000 was raised through payroll deductions, cookouts, drawings, a 5K run/walk, golf scramble and other activities in the community.  The campaign, which includes both on- and off-site fundraising, is a long-standing tradition at the Portsmouth site – dating back to the 1950’s. In addition to these donations, the Fluor Foundation also matches the “activity” donations fifty cents on the dollar, which makes a huge difference.

“We are excited to announce the start of the 2018 Portsmouth Site Employee Giving Campaign.” Said Bob Smith, Fluor-BWXT Site Project Director.  “Every year, our employees look forward to participating in the campaign, whether it is from a giving standpoint or through their hard work to make it a success. It’s a fun way for all of us to get involved and to provide much needed assistance to those in need throughout our community at the same time.”

All of the proceeds are donated to the Community Fund of Pike County, United Fund of Jackson County, United Way of Ross County, and the Portsmouth Area Ladies (PALS) of Scioto County for local charities.
