EA's Annual Gift Drive Brings Holiday Cheer to Children in Baltimore
Hunt Valley, Maryland (25 January 2013)—The Maryland offices of EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc. (EA), a leading provider of interdisciplinary environmental services, have concluded another successful holiday gift-giving program to support The Children’s Home in nearby Catonsville.
Program coordinator Abbie Smith, P.E., an EA project manager and environmental engineer, notes, "EA employees raised $730 for shopping and over a hundred gifts were collected for the children. The donations enabled us to provide at least one present for each of the more than 50 children who live at the facility."
EA began this annual tradition of volunteer gift-giving at The Children's Home in 1997, and it has continued for 16 years. Each year, these efforts are welcomed by the youth and staff at The Children's Home, and the children often express their thankfulness with their own handwritten thank you notes.
Gail Lee, Director of Development at The Children's Home, adds, "We always appreciate your thoughtfulness in bringing gifts for our residents during this very special time of year. With the generous support of a caring community, The Children's Home strives to make every holiday season joyful for the children in our care."
