WachsCARES - Plant Vogtle Team donates to Toys for Tots
For the past 3 years, WACHS Services here at plant Vogtle has promoted a Toys 4 Tots fund raiser.
In 2014 we raised just over $3,000. In 2015 we raised over $4,000, and WACHS matched our donations. This year through the efforts of all of our craft workers and staff we raised a total of $5,790.
We recently had a new member added to our family here at Vogtle who is a single mother with a 6 year old daughter. In the spirit of taking care of our own, we donated $500 to make sure she was able to give her daughter a good Christmas.
Our own Lynn Mullins, Meagan Brittingham and Christi Fitzgerald took the donations and spent the day shopping. On our behalf, they delivered 3 vehicle loads of toys to the USMC Reserve’s unit in Augusta, GA, and donated the remaining funds to the reserve unit to purchase more gifts for the Toys 4 Tots fund raiser.
For our continued support of this fund raiser we received a Certificate of Commendation for 2015 and 2016, WACHS also received a plaque of appreciation. I would like to thank everyone who supported us here at plant Vogtle. We have a lot of generous, big hearted employees here who stepped up to help out a fellow co-worker or to support causes such as this.
Through the continued support and generosity of everyone within the WACHS organization we will continue to bring joy and happiness to families during this very special holiday season.
I will deliver the Certificates and Plaque to David Lindsay. I am honored to be a part of this organization and that I was able to be a part of the WACHS family here at Vogtle.
Again Thank You All and have a blessed holiday season. - Kevin Hawkins
