SN3 and its employees are active citizens in their communities and work daily to ensure that operations and activities are conducted in ways that enhance the quality of life for all residents and civic affiliations.
When SN3 was awarded the Combined Records Services Contract at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant Records Center in Carlsbad, NM in 2008, we were given an opportunity that is important to all of us. That opportunity was to continue to subcontract services through CARC Inc., a Carlsbad organization dedicated to serving individuals with developmental disabilities. The Records Center was supported by eight CARC residents, four men and four women who commute on a van every day from the CARC residences to the Records Center for morning and afternoon shifts. The residents worked with a job coach and receive one-on-one training to perform specific tasks, such as verifying records against microfilm, scanning documents, and shredding papers.
In Paducah, Kentucky, employees of SN3, DOE representatives, and other teaming partners assisted in flood relief during the 2011 flood, the biggest flood in the area since 1937. We provided money and supplies to the local American Red Cross chapter and also helped place sandbags, stockpiled household goods, and participated in sheltering pets and livestock.
In Grand Junction, Colorado, SN3 employees coordinated a fundraiser that raised almost $10,000 to support the local non-profit organization “Kids Aid”, a group that works to supply food to kids who may not be getting enough or any food at all during non-school days.
SN3 employees from the Morgantown, West Virginia’s office participated in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for life and raised more than $2,400.
SN3’s Idaho office donated three truckloads of food to the Idaho Falls Soup Kitchen. According to Dan Sanow, the Soup Kitchen Manager, it was enough food to last the kitchen several months. SN3 employees from that same group also held a toy drive that collected toys for 150 children.
The SN3 employees at the Fernald Site in Ohio regularly donate time and money to a local home for abused, neglected, and abandoned children called the One Way Farm. SN3 corporate made a surprise donation to the One Way Farm in addition to its employees.
Across the U.S., SN3 proves itself as an integral part of the communities in which it works. We believe we have a vested interest in local communities and are involved in a multitude of programs geared toward benefitting others and giving back.
