BRACEVILLE, Ill. (May 5, 2009) - The sale of t-shirts during Braidwood Generating Station’s recent scheduled maintenance and refueling outage has proven fruitful for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Will and Grundy counties.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Will and Grundy counties received a donation for $7,320 thanks to Braidwood Station employees and contractors who purchased t-shirts featuring the station’s outage logo. All the money collected from the t-shirt sale was donated to BBBS.
“Big Brothers Big Sisters is very proud to have a community leader such as Exelon Nuclear support our organization,” said Coleen Davis, chief development officer for BBBS. “We would like to thank Exelon and its generous employees for helping change the lives of youth in Will and Grundy counties.”
“The station employees and contractors have made a wonderful gesture through their generous donations,” said Larry Coyle, Braidwood plant manager. “In many cases employees contributed more money because they wanted to help this great organization.”
Big Brothers Big Sisters helps at-risk children, primarily from single-parent homes, reach their full potential through professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships with proven results.
Braidwood Station has donated more than $23,000 in 2009 to local agencies and charitable organizations.
Braidwood Generating Station is approximately 60 miles southwest of Chicago. The station’s two nuclear energy units can produce a total of more than 2,300 megawatts at full power - enough electricity to power more than 2 million homes.
