Ginna’s NAYGN Builds Hope with Flower City Habitat for Humanity

 

Exelon Generation’s Ginna Nuclear Power Plant has strived to be an excellent neighbor for nearly 50 years. The station’s long history of community support is proudly carried on by the site’s North American Young Generation in Nuclear (NAYGN) chapter, a resource for young professionals to get involved in community outreach, knowledge transfer, recruiting and networking. 

This year, Ginna’s NAYGN participated in two separate Habitat for Humanity build days in nearby Rochester, N.Y. During the most recent build, the team faced a cold and windy November day, but stayed warm completing demolition projects. In addition to donating their time, the NAYGN team raised funds to support the dream of homeownership, giving families the foundation to build their lives. 

NAYGN is a national organization whose mission is to unite young professionals in the nuclear science and technology field who are working together throughout North America to share their passion for the field. More than 85 chapters across six regions of the U.S. and Canada represent young employees of nuclear vendors, nuclear generating plants and professional organizations.

Flower City Habitat for Humanity targets the city's most desperate neighborhoods and select vacant lots upon which to build one-story homes. The city makes lots available to the organization through foreclosure and demolition of run-down or vacant properties. Since 1984, Flower City Habitat for Humanity has built or renovated over 225 homes, and is one of the largest Habitat affiliates in the northeastern US.
