In recognition of working 30 days without a recordable injury at Y-12, the Site Manager’s Safety Council’s Safety Challenge for Charity donated $500 to extend community relief from COVID-19, in partnership with the East Tennessee Foundation’s Neighbor to Neighbor Disaster Relief Fund. Inspired by the act, ETF’s employees also came together to match Y-12’s donation.

Chosen by Y-12 Site Manager Bill Tindal, donating to ETF means broadening our support to represent the East Tennessee community.

“It’s important that we were able to select an organization that means a lot to our community and employees during this time,” Tindal said.

By serving on a grant based request basis, Neighbor to Neighbor Disaster Relief Fund’s program has been able to assess and target community needs throughout our 25 county region during the pandemic. From food, shelter, to utilities, the fund has supplied timely contributions to area non profits providing essential emergency services to affected community members.

“In times of crisis, it is especially crucial that our communities come together in support of our area,” said ETF President and CEO Michael McClamroch. “We are thankful for the support of Y-12’s Safety Challenge. The populations we serve are in desperate need of relief, and we are ready to get to work.”

While safety is one of the top priorities, the opportunity to provide for our community in crisis has the power to encourage maintaining safety precautions, and continue supporting those who need protection more than ever before.

“We hope that by doing this, it keeps people mindful to stay safe every day,” said Atomic Trades and Labor Council president Mike Thompson.
