More than 100 volunteers.
Dozens of special events.
During National Volunteer Month in April, the Pepco team didn’t miss a single opportunity to make a difference. We congratulate them on spreading the spirit of giving back and doing good work throughout our communities.
Their efforts canvassed the company’s coverage areas in Maryland and Washington, D.C., and gave its team members an opportunity to see how good it feels to support their neighbors in our region.
Their efforts included:
- Packing food at Food & Friends to help those in our community living with cancer, HIV/AIDS, and other serious illnesses.
- Preparing vegetable garden beds at THEARC Farm, which encourages healthy nutrition in the community through urban farming.
- Helping seniors and other local residents in the Mount Vernon neighborhood of the District of Columbia beautify the area and dispose of trash and other materials.
- Cleaning up trash and debris along the Anacostia River as part of the Anacostia Watershed Society’s annual cleanup.
“We are so pleased to be such an active partner with organizations across our communities that provide us with opportunities to give back both financially and with volunteer support,” said Rodney Oddoye, senior vice president of Governmental, Regulatory and External Affairs for Pepco Holdings. “Together, we are providing a different type of positive energy that is having great impact in helping our customers and communities thrive.”
