While COVID-19 prevented the workday from occurring in the fall, LaSalle Station again donated $15,000 to support the rescheduled event in April. </p><p>“The Labor of Love volunteer workday is near and dear to our hearts,” said John Washko, Site Vice President of LaSalle Station. “Although we couldn’t physically work this year due to COVID restrictions, we were still honored to issue our station donation to help meet the most urgent demands in the community. Our employees are excited to participate in the workday this spring and make a difference for those in need.” </p><p>Labor of Love is a one-day home improvement blitz with 300 volunteers, including more than 100 from LaSalle Station, using donated materials to paint, clean and repair the homes of elderly, disabled and low-income homeowners. Assistance is available to homeowners who reside in Dayton, Grand Ridge, Harding, Leland, Marseilles, Naplate, Ottawa, Seneca, Serena, Sheridan and Wedron.  </p><p>The event has been rescheduled for April 24. Applications are being accepted through February by the United Way of Eastern LaSalle County. </p><p>“LaSalle Station continues to make a positive impact in our local communities through this long-standing event,” said Shelli Ocepek, executive director, United Way of Eastern LaSalle County. “Year after year, the station’s generosity and the exemplary volunteer efforts of employees inspire hope and provide opportunities for a better life for many struggling individuals and families in our area.”</p><p>This year alone, LaSalle Station employees logged 2,327 hours of volunteerism and donated $149,000 to a wide range of local organizations, including charitable contributions to help LaSalle and Grundy Counties improve environmental, educational and recreational initiatives within local communities.  </p><p>LaSalle County Generating Station is located approximately 75 miles southwest of Chicago.

Exelon Generation's 'Fishing for a Cure' Raises $41,000 for Special Connections of Grundy CountyExelon Generation's 'Fishing for a Cure' Raises $41,000 for Special Connections of Grundy County<p><strong>BRACEVILLE, Ill.</strong> — Braidwood Station’s ‘Fishing for a Cure’ charity bass fishing tournament was canceled earlier this year due to COVID-19, but that didn’t stop employees at the Exelon Generation nuclear plant from giving generously to a local charity.</p><p>Employees at the power plant held virtual fundraising events and raised $41,000 for Special Connections of Grundy County, a charity that serves special needs individuals throughout Northern Illinois. </p><p>“We are overwhelmed at the generosity of Exelon, the employees at the plant and those who run the fishing tournament,” said Kelly Thompson, executive director of Special Connections. “I cannot express how grateful we are for this donation. It’s more money than our charity raises in a year, probably two years.”</p><p>Two years ago, Special Connections suffered a “huge loss” according to Thompson when the charity’s bus was destroyed in a car accident. The bus frequently transported Special Connections clients to Special Olympics competitions and other events across Illinois. </p><p>Thompson said in recent years volunteers have carpooled with multiple vehicles traveling to events, but that Special Connections clients have missed traveling together. Considering this year’s Exelon donation, Special Connections decided to use donations from Exelon’s ‘Fishing for a Cure’ to purchase a wheelchair-accessible bus for the charity. </p><p> “We have needed a new, accessible bus for a long time, and all of our folks are ecstatic to once again be able to travel together to and from events once the pandemic ends,” Thompson said. “Seeing their happiness and watching them interact with each other, it makes you feel great too.”</p><p>‘Fishing for a Cure’, Braidwood Station’s signature charitable event, has now raised nearly $670,000 since it began in 2002. </p><p>Braidwood Generating Station is one of six Illinois nuclear plants owned and operated by Exelon Generation producing carbon-free, reliable electricity for more than 11 million homes and businesses in the state. Together they provide more than $2 million each year to local charities through corporate philanthropy and employee donations. Braidwood is located 20 miles southwest of Joliet, Ill.<br></p><p><br></p>https://www.exeloncorp.com/newsroom/exelon-generation-fishing-for-a-cure-raises-$41-000-for-charity12/1/2020 2:00:00 PM
Quad Cities Station Employees Warm Up the Area's Children with Winter Clothing Donation at Four Local SchoolsQuad Cities Station Employees Warm Up the Area's Children with Winter Clothing Donation at Four Local Schools<p><strong>CORDOVA, Ill.</strong> — While many area children may already be thinking about holiday gifts of toys and video games, employees at Quad Cities Generating Station want them to have important personal necessities as winter arrives. On Tuesday workers from the Cordova, Ill. nuclear plant donated winter hats, gloves, socks and toiletries for more than 3,200 students in need.</p><p>The effort is part of the station’s two-month plan of holiday giving activities that kicked off today with visits to area schools to drop off the new items. Many children need warm clothing as winter arrives, and basic toiletries are always an important, but sometimes forgotten, part of donations.</p><p>“This is a great project, being able to give back to our community and know that kids in our area will stay warm during the winter months ahead,” said Ravi Patel, an engineer at Quad Cities Generating Station and project leader of the donation effort. “With cold weather coming back last week, we knew this would be the perfect time to deliver needed clothing to keep these kids warm all winter.”</p><p>Employees dropped off items at United Township High School, Moline High School and Rock Island School, which had the largest number of items donated due to student demand. Future donations will take place at Riverdale School District’s elementary, middle and high schools in Port Byron.</p><p>"We have a tremendous need for cold weather clothing at Rock Island High School and we are so thankful that Exelon is stepping up to fill this need,” said Kathy Lelonek, Family & Community Engagement Liaison at Rock Island High School. “The clothing will be distributed through the Rocky Resource Room, where we directly serve our high school students and their families who have critical needs like clothing, hygiene supplies and food pantry items."</p><p>Other non-profit projects in progress at the nuclear facility include a collection for the local Toys for Tots campaign sponsored by the Marines, a Thanksgiving food donation for 61 local area families and a first-of-its-kind virtual “Angel Tree” gift-giving event to benefit the needy families of Ann’s Helping Hands, a local non-profit organization.</p><p>Quad Cities Generating Station is a nuclear power facility located about 20 miles north of the Quad Cities near Cordova, Ill.  At full power the facility’s two reactors produce more than 1,900 megawatts of carbon-free electricity, enough to power more than 1.2 million homes and businesses.<br></p>https://www.exeloncorp.com/newsroom/quad-cities-winter-clothing-drive11/17/2020 5:00:00 PM
