Oyster Creek Employees Rally to Support Community

 

Like many workplaces, Exelon Generation's Oyster Creek Nuclear Power Plant held a holiday party after the holidays—in this case, on February 2. Unlike other workplaces, Oyster Creek held a holiday party that raised $5,000 for local charities the day after the site announced it would close in October 2018.

Oyster Creek employees continue to rally together to support each other, the station and the community like never before.

Collecting $20 for each ticket to the party, event organizers raised $5,000 and split the entire amount among four very deserving local community organizations. These organizations were selected because they support health and human services or STEM education in our community—two areas of funding that are near and dear to the employees of Oyster Creek.

The recipients include: The Lacey Food Bank, Popcorn Park Zoo, Special Olympics, and the Lighthouse Center. Each organization will receive $1,250.

The February 2 announcement called into question how the site's closure will impact the local community. Oyster Creek, however, will continue to support its neighbors.

"We remain committed to the community that has supported us for nearly 50 years," said Communications Manager Suzanne D'Ambrosio. "We are looking forward to working with several organizations over the next year to celebrate the great history and legacy of Oyster Creek."
