Search and rescue missions are the rewards themselves.

Robert Francis, a mapping supervisor at BGE, has been with Mid-Atlantic DOGS for nearly four years while volunteering as the organization’s librarian and equipment manager. The organization provides experienced and dynamic search and rescue teams, made up of volunteers and canines, to missing-person emergencies.

In 2015, Robert participated in six missing-person searches. The searches are grueling, and sleep is often secondary to finding the missing person. But for Robert, the rewards come after successful missions, when families get closure.

He believes that volunteering has given him a greater appreciation for the fragility of life and the dedication required of first-responder volunteers.

At Exelon, individual initiative drives our success.

Exelon's executives serve on hundreds of nonprofit organization boards. We also field Exelon teams of volunteers and help employees find community service opportunities. But what impresses us the most? Employees' drive to volunteer for causes that they're passionate about.

Volunteerism is part of who we are. Our employees are purpose-driven in their work – and also on their own time. So far in 2016, 6,500 Exelon employees have spent approximately 138,000 hours volunteering with nonprofits in the diverse communities we serve. We encourage them to track their hours so we can recognize and reward their work.
