Pepco contributed more than $3.1 million to nonprofits in D.C. and Maryland last year through a combination of grants and volunteer efforts.
The contributions are part of the company’s commitment to powering communities and being a good corporate citizen for communities where its employees live and work.
“We value the strong and important relationships we’ve built and continue to cultivate with our communities across the District of Columbia and Maryland over the last 100-plus years,” said Donna Cooper, Pepco region president. “While we are known for our commitment to providing clean, safe, reliable, and affordable energy service to our customers, we also see it as our duty and obligation to give back to the communities that we are a part of and that we are privileged to serve.”
Every charitable contribution from Pepco also comes with a dedicated pledge of volunteers. The company’s “Powering Communities” program helps connect employees with volunteer opportunities throughout Pepco’s service area and recognizes their efforts.
In 2018, more than 390 employees volunteered a combined total of more than 1,125 work days through the program, helping support nearly 200 unique organizations across Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties, Maryland and the District of Columbia. The top volunteers were honored March 11 at Pepco’s “Volunteer Recognition Breakfast” at Edison Place Gallery in D.C.
“Seeing the outcomes of our continued contributions and volunteerism, with our outstanding nonprofit partners, is another reminder of our deep connection to our communities and the vested interest we have in their continued success,” said Mellanie Lassiter, senior manager of corporate relations for Pepco Holdings. “We are pleased that our broad support is helping these impactful organizations achieve their missions in serving the communities where we live and work.”
