The employees at Washington Rotating Control Heads, a Washington County manufacturer of drilling products, wanted to give back this Christmas season. As the company approaches its 40th anniversary in 2016, a greater focus on making a difference in the local and global community is on everyone’s mind. After discussing a number of opportunities, the 32-member staff decided to collect toiletries, food, bedding, and games to send to US Troops.
Washington Rotating owner, Joyce Mayernik, said “The company was founded 38 years ago by my father, who was a WWII veteran. With his recent passing, it seems fitting to remember him this Christmas season by supporting US troops who sacrifice so much for our country.”
Washington Rotating currently has a number of veterans on staff and encourages active and retired military to apply for job openings at the company. Sean Boggio, a PA Army National Guardsman and draftsman for Washington Rotating explains, “I have many friends and family members who have served and are currently serving in the armed forces, including myself. I am proud to say that I work for a company that takes the time to support and show appreciation to the men and women serving our nation.”
Washington Rotating is donating the collected items to a Pittsburgh-based organization called Operation Troop Appreciation (OTA). Since July of 2004, OTA has supported over 150,000 deployed military members through its active duty wish-list program and launched “Welcome Home” a veteran support program earlier this year, providing much needed support to over 250 veteran families in need in 2014. OTA is a 100% volunteer charity and ensures that 98 cents of every donated dollar is used to fund military and veteran programs.
