For many kids a bike means freedom – transportation to the pool on a hot day or to a friend’s house to shoot some hoops. But for the inner city kids who participate in Community Bike Works’ Earn a Bike program, those two-wheels are also a vehicle that unlocks valuable life skills and lessons.
PPL redefines diversity during Celebrate Diversity Month. Diversity is a word often talked about with respect to our communities and workplaces — but what does it mean?
PPL is committed to improving the quality of life of those who live in the communities it serves. That goes beyond just providing safe, reliable power. It means supporting programs and taking action to empower local residents and give them opportunities to thrive.
The Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania take on a unique and challenging task each year, and PPL is pleased to support them with friendly training and preparation.
“The time is always right to do what is right.” That quote from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. exemplifies the spirit of 23 PPL volunteers who visited Bethlehem, Pa.’s Fountain Hill Elementary School on Friday, Jan. 13 to honor the memory of King.
Today (11/29) marks Giving Tuesday, which kicks off the charitable season when many people focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. In recognition of this day, PPL employees are banding together to make a difference with the gift of service and donation.
More than 13,000 employees live and work in the communities that we serve, from bustling downtowns and urban neighborhoods to suburban communities and rolling hills of farmland.
For PPL Electric Utilities support engineer, Allyson Kilheffer, helping to keep customers’ lights on during the day isn’t enough. Helping to keep them safe in her off-hours is important too.
Dedication to the communities we serve is at the heart of our values. Our employees across the United Kingdom and United States bring that dedication to life, donating time and effort to help revitalize neighborhoods and improve the lives of people who call our regions home.
For nearly 100 years, PPL has been turning the power on for our customers. But, our job doesn’t end there. Serving the communities we call home is at the core of our values. This value runs deep at PPL and the spirit of volunteerism and philanthropy is part of our culture. It’s how we do business, and it’s our way of keeping our promise to support a brighter future.
