Pottstown, Pa - Limerick Generating Station employees walked, baked, and raffled their way to raising more than $12,000 for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life recently held in Pottstown. Limerick's maintenance department also donated their time and expertise to ensure the event had the electricity it needed to be a success.
"The efforts of Limerick Generating Station and its employees have truly demonstrated their commitment to the community," said Maddie DeGennaro, Pottstown Relay for Life coordinator, "We are grateful for the continued support we receive from Exelon."
The American Cancer Society Relay for Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. Each year, more than 3.5 million people in 5,000 communities in the United States, along with additional communities in 20 other countries, gather to take part in this global phenomenon and raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer.
"Limerick employees do a great job of banding together, especially for such an important cause as raising money for the Relay for Life," said Bill Maguire, site vice president. "The American Cancer Society does a wonderful job in helping lead the battle against cancer."
Exelon and the employees of Limerick Generating Station contributed more than $750,000 in the past two years to local charities and public service organizations in a continued effort to be a leader in the community.
