SRR makes donation to nonprofit
Savannah River Remediation recently presented Helping Hands, Inc. with a $500 donation.
The donation is a part of SRR’s Zero Injuries campaign. The company donates $500 to a local charity selected by employees when the employees work a month without injuries that result in days away from work.
Since August 2009, $14,500 has been donated to area charities.
