Christmas Cheer for Emerald Youth Foundation
Strata-G staff, including Elliott Barnett, Strata-G CEO, volunteered to wrap gifts for the Emerald Youth Foundation’s Christmas Store. The store gives parents of children connected to EFY’s ministry the opportunity to purchase gifts at deeply discounted rates. For 30 years, the Emerald Youth Foundation “has been working to support Knoxville’s youth and prepare generations of Godly community leaders.” https://www.emeraldyouth.org. Strata-G’s support of the Foundation falls under the company’s Outreach Program, a pillar in their corporate Strategic Plan. Grace Kihm, Strata-G Environmental Specialist, leads the Outreach Program and is directly responsible to the CEO and President of the company for its implementation.

Thanks to Landry and Azevado Law; Browne, Draper, & Land; Fox and Fogarty; and the Nichols Company for their generous sponsorships. KARM exists to rescue and restore the poor and needy of the Knoxville area by providing recovery services in Jesus’ name. For more information, https://karm.org/
Outstanding Sustainability Project in Oak Ridge
Strata-G celebrated DOE’s Oak Ridge Environmental Management Program and its cleanup contractor, UCOR, for recognition of an outstanding sustainability project, the result of DOE’s largest-ever cleanup effort. Oak Ridge has transferred more than 1,200 acres of land and numerous buildings to the private sector for use in a multi-use industrial park with three solar fields located there together producing an average of approximately 1.7 megawatts of electricity annually. Oak Ridge also placed 3,500 acres of land into conservancy for protection of wetlands, flora, and fauna. Additionally, reuse and recycling have been central to the project. Over the last five years, more than 26.5 million pounds of demolition debris, 3 million pounds of scrap metal, 1.2 million pounds of paper and cardboard, 133,000 pounds of plastics, 95,000 pounds of electronics, and 235,000 pounds of universal waste were diverted from landfills.
