A waste management company gave back to the community it calls home this holiday season.
Covanta, a world leader in sustainable waste management and renewable energy solutions, made a $10,000 donation on behalf of its employees to the Center for Aquatic Sciences in Camden.
The donation will help support the center's award-winning STEM programs for youth in the city.
Founded in 1989, the Center for Aquatic Sciences advances the understanding of and concern for aquatic animals and their habitats.
The center’s flagship program is community and urban science enrichment, or Cause, a five-year program for select students from Camden that provides mentoring, college preparation, and intensive academic training in environmental and life sciences.
