KLH Engineers, Safe Ship, Newport Elks Unite for The Barracks Project
KLH Engineers, Safe Ship and the Newport Elks recently partnered to set up a resource center that is fully equipped with four computer stations and a printer in support of The Barracks Project career assistance program in Ft. Thomas, Kentucky. Headquartered nearby in Covington, The Barracks Project is a nonprofit organization with a mission to serve and give back to current service members and newly reintegrating veterans. The donation provides local veterans a free resource for assistance with resume building, job search, interview skills and clothing, and registering and taking classes at Gateway Community and Technical College.
KLH Engineers donated surplus office furniture and equipment through its Keep Lending a Hand Community Fund, which is dedicated to supporting its employees in their charitable work and improving the regions where its employees live, work and play. KLH employees also volunteered to help clean and set up the donated items.
The Newport Elks received a National Elks Spotlight Grant to help with purchasing additional items needed and also provided volunteers for setup. Safe Ship donated its services to move and install the donated items.
“KLH is proud to partner with Safe Ship and the Newport Elks to support The Barracks Project and our local veterans in Ft. Thomas. We also look forward to providing additional volunteer support in the future to help perform updates to the resource center,” says Bob Heil, CEO of KLH Engineers.
