Engineering Firm Gives Back To Communities
January 15, 2010

In lieu of hosting employee holiday parties last month, CH2M HILL supported non-profit organizations to give back to local communities.

Nation-wide, CH2M HILL offices donated nearly $150,000 to local non-profit organizations, including food banks, Boys and Girls Clubs, Salvation Army, educational programs, and homeless shelters. Employees also volunteered time to numerous organizations and provided personal donations to benefit food banks, toy drives, coat drives and Adopt-A-Family programs.

Some examples this season included:

  • CH2M HILL staff in Virginia Beach and Denver hosted parties for non-profit organizations. More than 110 people turned up for the resident picnic and party at a low-income housing facility owned and managed by the Samaritan House in Virginia Beach. Employees in Denver hosted a 1950s-era-themed “Rockin’ Around the Holidays” celebration for The Arc of Arapahoe and Douglas County.
  • The Bikes for Kids program began in the Atlanta office and has been adopted by more than a dozen offices. Several CH2M HILL offices chose to donate holiday funds to purchase additional bikes for these programs. From Dallas to Jacksonville, and Philadelphia to Dayton, CH2M HILL contributions and employee fundraisers raised funds to provide more than 500 bikes and helmets to local children.
  • The Santa Ana, California, office donated $10,000 to the Orange County Food Bank and employees volunteered to package food boxes at the food bank’s warehouse. A donation of $10,000 was provided to the Santa Ana Boys and Girls Club and employees donated 90 hours to help serve a pre-Thanksgiving dinner to the families of children who attend the club.
