Hunt Valley, Maryland (6 February 2015)—Baltimore-based employees of EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc., PBC, a leading provider of interdisciplinary environmental services, generously “gave back” to the community this holiday season by purchasing, wrapping, and delivering holiday gifts for the boys and girls at The Children’s Home in Catonsville, Maryland. This is the 18th consecutive year that EA employees have contributed to The Children’s Home’s Holiday Giving Program.
Dozens of EA’s employees donated their energies and financial resources to help ensure the children enjoyed a special holiday.
