Shipyard Donates To Charities
Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard workers raised a record-breaking $715,451 for charity last year.
Every year the federal government encourages its employees, through the Combined Federal Campaign, to donate money to the more than 2,700 charities it supports. About 2,500 of the 4,850 workers at the shipyard pledged an average of $286 each, contributing 11 percent of the total $6.4 million raised by federal employees in the Hawaii-Pacific area during the campaign.
For its substantial contributions, the shipyard was recognized as a silver-level awardee at a CFC ceremony in January. Both civilian and military employees make up the work force at the shipyard, which is the regional maintenance center for the Navy’s ships and submarines.
