PECO’s George Ahern and the Friends of Independence National Historical Park

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

​​

Answering the bell with a passion for history.

George Ahern, a senior claims case manager for PECO, has been volunteering with the Friends of Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia for more than a decade. As a U.S. National Park Service volunteer, George inspires visitors, staff and community members through his dedication to ensuring visitor and resource safety, and by his unwavering delight in interacting with and educating visitors of all ages.

Independence National Historical Park preserves buildings and artifacts associated with the American Revolution and the founding of the nation. Volunteering at the park allows George to apply Exelon’s core values, such as diversity and inclusion, to his presentations for the Education and Interpretation department. With his knowledge of history and reverence for park resources, George is a model for the other volunteers and staff, and he’s an ambassador for both the park and the city of Philadelphia. George hopes that the educational experience will provide visitors with the necessary knowledge and desire to continue to learn and grow. 

In our recent Energy for the Community Awards, George won the Excellence Award and an additional $20,000 for the Friends of Independence National Historical Park.

At Exelon, individual initiative drives our success.

Exelon's executives serve on hundreds of nonprofit organization boards. We also field Exelon teams of volunteers and help employees find community service opportunities. But what impresses us the most? Employees' drive to volunteer for causes that they're passionate about.

Volunteerism is part of who we are. Our employees are purpose-driven in their work – and also on their own time. So far in 2016, 6,500 Exelon employees have spent approximately 138,000hours volunteering with nonprofits in the diverse communities we serve. We encourage them to track their hours so we can recognize and reward their work.
