WRPS volunteers come up big for local families

DSC_1650The holidays aren’t always filled with laughter and smiles, especially when families are struggling to make ends meet.

WRPS Project Integration team members came together to make the season a little brighter for four local families by collecting gifts and other items.

In conjunction with the Salvation Army’s Adopt-A-Family program, WRPS employees filled seven shopping carts with presents and purchased four $100 Winco gift cards to provide holiday meals. Four families—27 individuals—will benefit from the goodwill and generosity of this volunteer effort.

“Many individuals in my life have had to rely on organizations like the Salvation Army in time of need, and it is wonderful to see people pass it forward,” said WRPS Single-Shell Tank Retrieval Project Controls Manager Nathan Morgan. “I applaud your selfless efforts and thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

Gifts were collected in just two short weeks and were given to the families in time for Christmas.
