CHICAGO — Whether it’s helping people whose homes have been destroyed, children who need food or underserved areas that could benefit from new biking and walking trails, Exelon (Nasdaq: EXC) employees are dedicated to making a positive difference in their communities. In 2022 alone, volunteers gave 126,529 hours of their time to local nonprofits.
In acknowledgement of those efforts, the Exelon Foundation recognized 20 Exelon employees with its Volunteer Awards, given to those who have shown exemplary service and served more than 50 hours in one calendar year. Awardees also received $5,000 for the charity of their choice.
“Powering a cleaner and brighter future for our customers means more than just delivering energy. It means being active in the communities we serve, sharing our resources and helping our customers in whatever way possible,” said Calvin Butler, president and CEO of Exelon. “Our employees share this passion for making a difference, and I am proud of their dedication to volunteer and share their most important resource -- time -- with their communities for causes they care about.”
The Foundation selected employees from the company’s six energy delivery companies, Atlantic City Electric (ACE), Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE), Commonwealth Edison (ComEd), Delmarva Power and Light (DPL), Philadelphia Energy Company (PECO), Potomac Electric Power Company (Pepco) and Exelon corporate employees.
