Elliott-Lewis employees brought in donations of children’s toys to benefit families who may not be able to afford to provide their children with presents for the holidays. Elliott-Lewis employees brought the donation to the local Toys for Tots warehouse, and then helped to sort and prepare even more toys that will go to children from Delaware to Bucks County, and all over the city in between.
Elliott-Lewis employees (including our satellite offices and field employees) donated over 50 pounds of food to Philabundance in time for Thanksgiving. The impact will reach all over the city of Philadelphia and employees generously donated highly requested food items to ensure families would have well-rounded meals to combat food insecurity. We are proud to be a small part in WMMR’s total 2.8 million pounds of food donated in 2022.
Team Foster has a cycling event where cyclists raise money in conjunction with a 100 mile bike ride. The money raised helps purchase service dogs for veterans with PTSD. Elliott-Lewis sponsored a rest stop on this cycling event which required a monetary donation from our company, and volunteer hours of our employees to hand out snacks and beverages to cyclists as they came through the rest stop.
Ronald McDonald House provides housing, meals, and transportation for families with sick children from out of town who are treating at Philadelphia hospitals. Elliott-Lewis employees volunteered to make dinner for all of the families staying at Ronald McDonald house that evening. Dinner included a full course with three protein options, four sides, dessert, and beverages, as well as “to go” boxes for the families who could not be present due to their children’s treatment schedules.
Elliott-Lewis welcomed back in-person interns for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic shut down schools and places of work. Elliott-Lewis supports the tuition of four students at Cristo Rey charter school and in turn provides a corporate workplace internship for each of the students for the duration of the school year. Students shadow corporate professionals and are assigned tasks such as: event planning, data analysis, record keeping, and market research.
For the first time since COVID-19 hit, Elliott-Lewis led the charge as the first employer to return to the summer internship program with the School District of Philadelphia. Elliott-Lewis utilized this as an opportunity to place high school students enrolled in trade programs in groups of skilled professionals resulting in no less than a 3:1 ratio of Elliott-Lewis employees to each student. Students were hired to perform work well above minimum wage in skill areas that aligned with their chosen studied trade ranging from electrical studies, to carpentry studies, and even safety and graphic arts studies. Our site leads across various client facilities and corporate teams ensured students expanded their skills beyond the classroom setting while also learning the importance of real-world hard work.

Written By: PHL Newsroom • See The Original Article Here Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) is one of a few airports in America that continues to utilize its Passenger Transfer Vehicles (PTVs). The vehicles, also known as “Plane Mates” or “mobile lounges,” were designed by Eero Saarinen in the 1960s. With commercial air travel booming and airports expanding, there became a demand for a new and innovative way to travel within the facilities. The goal of the PTVs was to accommodate passengers who did not want to walk long distances within airports and preferred an elevated experience.

Each vehicle is 60-feet long, weighs 76,000 pounds (38 tons), travels approximately 26 miles-per-hour and can carry more than 100 passengers at a time.

A portal in A-East near gate A6 is where PTVs load and unload guests directly into the terminal. “Our PTVs are another tool to accommodate our guests in the event of gate unavailability or emergency situations so they can continue their journeys,” said PHL Deputy Director of Facilities Maintenance Allan Moore. “We want to do our [...]
