EA's Holiday Gift Drive Helps Make the Season Brighter for Baltimore Area Children
Hunt Valley, Maryland (3 February 2012)—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.
EA's employees began this annual tradition of volunteer gift-giving at The Children's Home in 1997, and it has continued for 15 consecutive years. As noted by this year's program coordinator Abbie Adams Smith, P.E., an EA project manager and environmental engineer, "EA employee monetary donations resulted in over $1,300 in shopping money for our 'EA elves' to use in finding gifts for the children, and additional donated gifts allowed us to provide at least one gift for each of the 41 children currently residing at the facility."
Every year, these efforts are welcomed by the youth and staff at The Children's Home, and often the children express their appreciation with their own handwritten thank you notes. Gail Lee, Director of Development at The Children's Home, adds, "The holidays are a special time for our residents. Each child is aware of the overwhelming amount of support from members of the community. This heart-felt example of caring can bring warm memories that last throughout the year."
