For 100 years, we have had a special connection to our local communities, knowing that the service we provide is essential to families and businesses. At the same time, generations of PPL employees have always understood that we can make a positive impact beyond the electricity and gas we provide.
At a time when community need is as great as ever, PPL teamed up with employees and retirees to give back and make a difference. In 2020, the company’s employee giving campaigns in the U.S. raised a record $7 million in employee and retiree pledges, together with matching funds from the corporation’s foundations.
The funds generated by the 2020 United Way campaign in Pennsylvania, Power of One campaign in Kentucky and United Way campaign at PPL’s Safari Energy subsidiary in New York City, will support local United Way agencies and nonprofit organizations that are a force for good in our communities.
This community investment will assist families struggling with COVID-19; expand educational opportunities for children; support access to health care services, food, shelter and other basic needs; and offer additional assistance for healthy communities. Community investment is one of the many ways the company works year-round to uphold its values, which include a focus on corporate citizenship.
