Members of the KBR global marketing and communications team donated their time to shop for $18,000 worth of toys with help from the Houston Fire Department. “It is a privilege to work with the Houston Fire Department and be a part of Operation Stocking Stuffer, which touches so many lives in the Houston community,” said Kayla Wilkinson, specialist, Corporate Communications. “the men and women with the Houston Fire Department always do a remarkable job organizing, planning and carrying out Operation Stocking Stuffer. This years will be sure to be a great success!”

KBR’s Government Solutions Readiness and Sustainment (R&S) team collected $3,300 for needy children. Ruzanna Makaryan, senior manager of proposals, used the money to buy 442 toys. Ruzanna has been leading the effort in the R&S group for five years, with almost $13,000 raised for the R&S school supplies drive and toy drive. She collected donations from her team members in Texas, Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia and New York.

In Leatherhead, UK, KBR team members participated in a toy drive benefitting the Smile Sleigh charity, which supports women and children whose lives have been impacted by domestic abuse. The organization helps individuals that are being supported by the domestic outreach services in Surrey. Gifts were collected, sorted and sent to the centers for the mothers and children to pick for their loved ones.

​At KBR, giving back to our communities has been part of our character since our founding.

Through corporate initiatives and volunteerism, we are proud to give back to our local communities around the globe this holiday season, and we applaud our employees’ efforts to support meaningful causes and spread cheer to those in need.
