These boots were made for charity

The Hinesville Public Works Department kicked off a fundraising raffle, "Boots Kick Cancer," last month. Proceeds went to the department’s Relay for Life team with the American Cancer Society.

As employees contributed, they were entered into a raffle to win Red Wing work boots. The raffle provided three workers day-to-day footwear. They raised more than $300 for the relay team, and CH2M corporate office matched the contribution and provided the boots.

Winners were construction and maintenance supervisor Franklin Wilson, operator Terry Howard, and operator Matt Reuschling. Sixteen other employees received other prizes.

Other fundraising events have included doughnut fundraisers and individual donations.

CH2M will have a booth and a team present to walk during the Liberty County Relay for Life, which is Friday-Saturday at the Liberty County Recreation Department, 607 Oglethorpe Highway, Hinesville.

CH2M began providing services to Hinesville’s 7.15-million gallon per day wastewater treatment plant in 1984, and branched out into full public works and utilities in 1992.
