Employee Giving Day at Byron

 

On Aug. 16, 2018, Exelon's Byron Generation Station held its Employee Giving Day on the grounds of the facility's training building at the nuclear plant. The annual event is a kickoff of sorts for the employees on site – starting their new fiscal year for donations to various charitable groups.

Most employees pick a charity or charities of choice and then have regular deductions from their paychecks go to the non-profits, or a single sum. These donations – coupled with the nuclear plant's gifts to charitable causes – reach approximately $250,000 each year.

At the August kickoff event, employees enjoy a free luncheon and some chances to win prizes. Donations for the lunch, and money collected for prize raffles, go directly to the annual collection. Exelon matches a portion of the donations to 501(c)3 charities.

Special thanks were given to all of the Employee Giving volunteers – both from Byron Station and from other sites – who helped make the kickoff event a great success.
