During April 2017, Exelon Generation employees volunteered more than 2,500 hours – or the equivalent of more than one year of full-time work –​​ at various service projects in the communities where they live and work. The projects ranged from supporting events for special needs individuals to cleaning up parks and roadways to packaging and delivering food to the hungry. Here’s a look at some of the projects our employees organized and supported to help improve the quality of life for people in the communities we serve.

Helping WDSRA Athletes Go for the Gold
Exelon’s Chief Nuclear Officer Bryan Hanson and volunteers from Exelon Generation’s regional headquarters in Warrenville, Ill., worked with the Western DuPage Special Recreation Association (WDSRA) to run their annual track and field event for children and young adults with special needs. Volunteers helped organize, officiate and record the performances of each athlete and also cheered them on to victory!

Bringing Food to Those in Need
Another group of volunteers from Exelon Generation’s Warrenville location joined Carol Peterson, senior vice president of strategy and planning for Exelon Nuclear, and the Northern Illinois Food Bank to host a mobile food pantry at O’Donnell Elementary School in Aurora, Ill. Volunteers unloaded the truck and set up the mobile pantry to help local families get the food they need, including meats, canned goods, fresh produce and bread. 

Preparing Kennett Square Food Cupboard for Spring
Employees from Exelon Generation’s regional headquarters in Kennett Square, Pa., and Judy Rader, Exelon Generation vice president of communications, prepared the community garden, sorted food donations and stocked shelves for the Kennett Food Cupboard. The local food pantry provides a seven-day supply of food to more than 1,200 individuals every month.

Supporting Literacy Programs for Kids
Members of Dresden Station’s Women in Nuclear chapter helped process new and gently used children's books at Bernie’s Book Bank in Lake Bluff, Ill. Bernie’s Book Bank collects and distributes quality books to at-risk children in the Chicagoland area to increase book ownership and promote literacy.

Keeping Our Communities Clean
LaSalle Station employees helped clear 30 miles of garbage by participating in the Future Farmers of America 30 MPH roadside clean-up event in Seneca, Ill. They joined nearly 500 volunteers for the annual event, which is organized by the Seneca FFA and is in its 17th year. While they picked up trash along the roads surrounding Seneca, volunteers also helped keep road traffic speed to 30 mph. In addition to manpower, LaSalle Station donated $1,500 and provided supervisors and trucks to support the event.
