POTTSTOWN, PA (April 2, 2009) - Exelon Nuclear employees have partnered with the Fraternal Order of Police's Philadelphia Police Survivor's Fund to provide $5,000 in assistance to families of wounded or fallen Philadelphia police officers. Limerick's maintenance department organized several benefit lunches to help raise awareness and donations for the fund.
"Limerick employees do a great job of banding together, especially when it means helping a family when they are going through a rough time," said Chris Mudrick, Limerick Generating Station Site Vice President. "The Fraternal Order of Police does a wonderful job supporting families in their time of need."
The Fraternal Order of Police uses donations to the Philadelphia Police Survivors Fund to help families of fallen or wounded officers. They help them through the grieving process by holding luncheons where families can connect or by helping with household needs of officers who suffered a life altering injury.
"We appreciate all of the assistance that we have received from everyone throughout the Delaware Valley, during these tough times," said Steven J. Weiler, from the Fraternal Order of Police. "The community, including Exelon and its employees at Limerick Generating Station, has clearly demonstrated their support of our fallen officers and their families."
