EA’s Maryland-Based Employees Support Holiday Gift Drive
Hunt Valley, Maryland (8 January 2019)—For the 22nd consecutive year, the Maryland-based employees of EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc., PBC, (EA) generously volunteered their time and contributed gifts and monetary donations to benefit the residents of The Children’s Home (TCH) located in Catonsville, Maryland as they celebrated the holiday season.
Exemplifying the holiday spirit, EA’s employees supported TCH’s Holiday Gift Program and helped fulfill the children’s holiday wishes. Employees supported the program directly through gift purchases, as well as through monetary contributions, which were used to purchase clothes, shoes, toys, and other items as well as provide gift cards to cover future needs.
“Our employees feature some of the most considerate and giving individuals that I have had the privilege to work with,” said Laura Jo Oakes, P.E., BCEE, one of the co-leaders for this year’s volunteer effort. “As in the past, EA employees stepped up in support of TCH and, in turn, experienced the joy of giving to children and youth who have experienced difficulties in their lives.”
“Our employees are encouraged to give back in meaningful ways and make positive impacts in the communities in which they live and work,” added Michael Battle, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “I am very proud and grateful for our employees’ solicitous generosity and that they continue to be part of such a strong initiative that touches so many lives.”
