MARSEILLES, Ill. — Exelon Generation’s LaSalle County Generating Station is supporting local non-profit organizations this holiday season with $40,000 in donations. The organizations include: A Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Service (ADV & SAS), The Center for Youth and Family Solutions of LaSalle County, Blessings in a Backpack, and the Red Stocking Fund.
“The resources these organizations provide to LaSalle County residents are impressive,” said LaSalle Station Site Vice President Bill Trafton. “We are very proud to live and work in this community and happy to support local non-profits that benefit education, the environment, health & human services, arts and the community.”
These year-end donations are one of the many ways in which LaSalle County Generating Station gives back to the community each year. Through corporate and employee donations, environmental stewardship contributions and the annual golf outing, the station donates more than $400,000 each year to local schools, organizations and first responders in the surrounding area. The station also makes a conscious effort to use local vendors when possible and shop local to support area businesses.
LaSalle Generating Station is located about 75 miles southwest of Chicago near Marseilles, IL. At full power, the facility’s two generating units produce more than 2,300 megawatts, enough electricity for 2.3 million typical homes.
