PRINCETON, NJ, March 8, 2006 – Washington Group International, Inc. has recently partnered with the American Red Cross of Central New Jersey. The partnership will help the local Red Cross chapter provide relief to victims of local disasters, collect a safe blood supply for area hospitals, and support the training of local residents with first aid, CPR and other life-saving skills.

The Washington Group Foundation initially provided a grant of $10,000 to help the local Red Cross chapter deliver their programs and services throughout the community. Soon after, an additional $3,000 donation was received from the Washington Group Power Business Unit in Princeton.

“Washington Group has a strong commitment to safety,” said Kevin Sullivan, Chief Executive Officer with the American Red Cross of Central New Jersey. “This, along with their dedication to the community, makes them a natural fit together with the American Red Cross.”

Washington Group is committed to achieving a perfect safety record on all of its projects and believes that all accidents are preventable. In 2004, Washington Group was named one of America’s Safest Companies by Occupational Hazards Magazine. Last year the company achieved the best safety record in its history.
