EA’s Employees Support Children and Families in Need during the 2019 Holiday Season
Hunt Valley, Maryland (8 January 2020)—Employees of EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc., PBC (EA) provided welcomed support to a variety of community-based organizations during the 2019 holiday season. The activities were part of EA’s broader employee-based giving campaign, which is anchored by the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility Program and seeks to benefit a wide range of programs.
In November, EA’s Albuquerque office capped its year-long support of a local food bank by donating over 200 pounds of non-perishable food items. Leading a corporate-wide effort, Rhode Island office employees raised money to provide Thanksgiving dinner for 24 families living in Point Hope, Alaska, where many residents live at or below the poverty line.
During November and December, personnel in EA’s Syracuse office purchased Christmas gifts—including sports equipment, blankets, clothes, and gift cards—for teen members of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Syracuse. In the past, Syracuse personnel have organized holiday giving activities benefiting Toys for Tots and Blessings in a Backpack.
For EA’s Baltimore-area employees, The Children’s Home of Catonsville (Home) remained the keystone of their holiday giving efforts. For the 23rd consecutive year, EA’s employees supported the Home’s Holiday Gift Program through gift donations and monetary contributions, which were used to purchase clothes, shoes, toys, and gift cards to cover future needs.
“I am so proud of our employees. Their generosity is certainly inspiring,” commented Ian MacFarlane, President and Chief Executive Officer. “It is heartwarming to see our employees give back to their communities, while doing their part to strengthen the communities of others.”
