Exelon Employees Give Back to Community for #GivingTuesday Through More Than 120 Service Projects

Employees volunteered 9,300 hours in November lead-up to #GivingTuesday

CHICAGO (Nov. 30, 2015) — Exelon employee volunteers are investing their time and money in their communities this holiday season by participating in more than 120 service projects in Illinois, Maryland, Pennsylvania and the District  of Columbia to mark #GivingTuesday. Employees volunteered 9,300 hours in November – including mentoring students, collecting food and wrapping toys for families in need – in the lead up to the national day of giving. Approximately 1,400 Exelon employees participated in company-sponsored volunteer projects. 
#GivingTuesday, which takes place tomorrow, Dec. 1, encourages individuals to give back to their communities, in contrast to the retail industry’s “Black Friday and “Cyber Monday” shopping days. It promotes acts of kindness, charitable donations and volunteer work during the holiday season. In addition to organizing employee volunteer projects, Exelon on #GivingTuesday will match employee charitable donations of $100 or more, dollar for dollar and contribute an additional donation of $100 to employees’ charities of choice.
“Our employees are carrying out Exelon’s commitment to giving back this holiday season, through volunteer service and contributions to nonprofits that serve our most vulnerable citizens,” said Steve Solomon, vice president of corporate relations at Exelon. “We’re proud of our employees for their charitable work and the differences they’re making in their communities.”
One volunteer project in the District of Columbia last week brought together dozens of employees from both Exelon and Pepco Holdings to support people in the community who are homeless. Volunteers from the two companies, which are seeking to merge, worked with Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington to cook and serve a Thanksgiving dinner and provide winter coats to more than 200 homeless individuals in the District.
Volunteers for #GivingTuesday service projects included employees from all of Exelon’s businesses, including BGE and Constellation in central Maryland, ComEd in northern Illinois, PECO in southeastern Pennsylvania, and Exelon Generation and Exelon Business Services Company in all three states. Exelon employees across these regions also are leading more than 20 food, clothing and toy drives or similar events to support their communities this holiday season. 
This year Exelon employees have volunteered a total of more than 106,000 hours to service projects and pledged more than $6.26 million through Exelon’s employee giving campaign, exceeding the company’s goal. This comprehensive program benefits Exelon’s commitment to education, the environment, diversity and inclusion, and community engagement.
