Beaver Valley Exceeds Two Site Goals in Harvest for Hunger
April 11, 2019
In March, Beaver Valley’s Harvest for Hunger site fundraising goal was set at $20,000. Less than three weeks into the drive, the site exceeded that total and set a new goal of $27,000. On Tuesday, the site announced it had surpassed the second number and had collected more than $30,000, with some donations still uncounted.
“This has been an incredible effort by the site,” said Rod Penfield, general plant manager. “Far surpassing both our site goals just demonstrates the drive and selfless nature of the people who work at Beaver Valley.”
In a final push to help the cause, the Beaver Valley chapters of Women in Nuclear and the North American Young Generation in Nuclear (NAYGN) co-sponsored an all-hands fair last week.
“It was a chance for everyone to come out and have some fun while contributing to Harvest for Hunger,” said Maninder Singh, president of the Beaver Valley NAYGN chapter. Visitors could partake in a bake sale, try their (steady) hand at Operation or Connect 4, or go for a hole-in-one on a putting green. The biggest draw, though, was the opportunity – for a small donation – to toss a pie in the face of one of a dozen managers.
