PECO employees are celebrating National Volunteer Week (April 10-16) by participating in service projects in Norristown and West Conshohocken and several more throughout southeastern Pennsylvania.

On Wednesday in Norristown, PECO employees will perform general maintenance at Elmwood Park Zoo in order to prepare it for spring visitors. On Thursday in West Conshohocken, they will sort and clean hundreds of toys, books, and other items for local low-income children with Cradles to Crayons.

Other projects in the region include renewing green spaces, collecting clothing for local low-income children and families, and helping rebuild homes.

“We do more than provide safe, reliable, affordable and clean energy for our customers,” said Craig Adams, PECO president and CEO. “Our employees actively support the communities where they live and work every day. We are proud to help so many local nonprofit organizations achieve their goals and make our communities a better place for our customers.”

National Volunteer Week is an annual, nationwide celebration of people working to improve their communities through volunteer service. For the 10th consecutive year, PECO employees are organizing community service projects for more than 1,000 employees, family members, and friends to participate in throughout April.

PECO and its parent company Exelon recognize National Volunteer Week by empowering employees to design their service projects and recruit others to participate.

PECO is one of the Greater Philadelphia region’s most active corporate citizens, providing more than $5 million in grant support annually to hundreds of educational, environmental, arts and culture, and community development organizations. Through PECO’s Energy for the Community corporate citizenship program, PECO employees gave nearly 15,000 hours of time and talent as board members, coaches, and volunteers to support community nonprofit organizations in 2015.
