Exelon Generation's Jim Aguiar and the Special Olympics

Exelon employees are committed individual volunteers. We encourage them to support the causes they’re passionate about.

​Impacting the Special Olympics community 

Jim Aguiar, a Senior Staff Engineer at Exelon Generation, has been volunteering for Special Olympics Illinois since 2009. In support of his granddaughter Cami, who has Cerebral Palsy, Jim launched the initiative “Ice-A-Topes for Cami” as part of Chicago’s annual Polar Plunge event.

As the creator and team-captain of “Ice-A-Topes for Cami”, Jim has raised over $60,000 since 2012 for Special Olympics Illinois. Additionally, with the support of the Dresden Generation Station, Jim has contributed over $1,500 to Cami’s local elementary school towards the purchase of new athletic uniforms. The Achievement Award grant will help Special Olympics Illinois provide year-round sports training and athletic competitions for children and adults with disabilities, helping provide opportunities to develop physical fitness and create memories with the Special Olympics community.

About Exelon’s Energy for the Community Volunteer Awards Program 

Exelon makes grants totaling $200,000 in honor of 24 outstanding employee volunteers for their work in the community. Nonprofits will receive grants of $5,000, $10,000 or $20,000. Since 2007, the awards program has recognized 180 employees and provided more than $1.3 million to their nonprofit partners.

At Exelon, individual initiative drives our success.

Volunteerism is part of who we are. Our employees are purpose-driven in their work – and also on their own time. In 2016, 6,700 Exelon employees spent more than 171,000 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.
