Limerick Generating Station Employees Donate $395,000 to Community Organizations Through Employee Giving Campaign

Across Exelon Generation, donations total more than $4.6 million to local communities

POTTSTOWN, Pa. — Exelon Generation employees and the Exelon Foundation are donating more than $4.6 million to support charitable organizations in the communities around its power plants. Employees pledged more than $3.1 million to 849 different charities in their local communities this year. And for every dollar employees pledged, the Exelon Foundation donated 50 cents to their local United Way, bringing the total donation to more than $4.6 million.

At Limerick Generating Station in Limerick Township, Pa., employees pledged nearly $395,000 to local charities during this year’s Employee Giving Campaign. Organizations supported include: Boyertown Area Multi-Service Inc.; Preston’s Pantry Project; Friendship Diving-Rescue Unit, Phoenixville Fire Department; and Perkiomen Watershed Conservatory. 

“We are beyond grateful that proceeds from the Limerick Generating Station's holiday drive will help Boyertown Area Multi-Service make sure every family in our community who comes to us for food will not go hungry,” said Lydia Messinger, executive director of Boyertown Area Multi-Service. “Since creating Preston's Pantry four months ago, the number of families we serve each month has increased by almost fifty percent.”

Exelon Generation employees have a long-standing tradition of supporting their communities, not just with their dollars, but also with their time. Through Nov. 30, 2019, Exelon Generation employees at Limerick Generating Station volunteered more than 3,200 hours with charitable organizations in the local area. 

Across Exelon Generation, employees volunteered 38,000 hours this year, which is equal to more than four years’ time. Projects supported workforce development programs, STEM education events, environmental causes, food pantries and veterans’ organizations, among many others.

Limerick Generating Station is located approximately 21 miles northwest of Philadelphia. The plant produces enough carbon-free electricity to power two million homes.
