The contractor for the mixed-oxide fuel fabrication facility at Savannah River Site raised more than $57,000 for a nonprofit child care organization in Aiken, according to a news release.

Shaw Areva MOX Services donated the money to Children’s Place Inc., which provides social services for at-risk children and families. The company raised it by holding events, including a golf tournament and celebrity waiter night.

The contribution was the largest single donation ever raised by the company.

This is FREAKING HILARIOUS!! Shaw has raped the American taxpayer for how much so far? No finished product in our or our grandchildren''s lifetimes.
57,000 divided by billions is what? Their little world is coming to an end on October 1st. And these small minded people think change found in their couch cushions will fix all that?

"If I read this article

"If I read this article correctly,SHAW AREVA donated NOTHING!
The monies were a result of various fund raisers put on by the employees."

I assume it's a combination of corporate and employee donations.
