Stepping up for our youth


This past Saturday SWR contributed to a community service project at the Philips School in Annandale, VA which was organized by the HCCA.  The Philips School is a nonprofit organization that serves over 500 children and their families from the Washington metropolitan area.  For the past four decades the Philips School has helped children where others could not.  They have helped children with learning disabilities, autism, emotional disabilities, intellectual disabilities, health impairments and who struggle with multiple disabilities to prepare and become independent, productive young adults.

The parking lot at the Philips School was failing from years of use and the HCCA swiftly jumped into action.  An industry wide collaboration took place to start the project which included milling of the old parking lot and travel ways.  Due to our impeccable safety resume, SWR was asked to contribute with the hauling of this material to an offsite dump site.  A few of our drivers sprang to work early last Saturday morning, including our “2016 Safe Employee” award winning driver Billy Smith.  Special thanks goes out to Billy, Bill Hogue and Gary Randolph for putting in the time and doing a job that will undoubtedly benefit our youth of tomorrow for years to come.
