Powering Communities

At Atlantic City Electric, we believe in giving back to the communities in which we live and work. Through our volunteer program, Power Communities Atlantic City Electric employees lend their time and passion supporting local organizations, community events, and volunteer initiatives.

Our volunteer program engages employees from all parts of the company and recognizes the importance of their efforts in building relationships with our customers and communities to make a positive and lasting impact. Each year, hundreds of Atlantic City Electric employees volunteer thousands of hours supporting initiatives that make our communities better places to live and work.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Walking for Charity

Each year, employee volunteers walk for a number of important area organizations.

Heart Walk

Hundreds of Atlantic City Electric employees, family and friends participated in the 2018 American Heart Association's Annual Southern New Jersey Spring Heart Walk on the Ocean City boardwalk. Atlantic City Electric raised or donated funds to support the American Heart Association. Through its Heart Walk, the American Heart Association encourages members of the community to increase physical activity in order to help lower risk factors that can lead to heart disease and stroke.

Breast Cancer Walk

Each year, employees walk the boardwalk in Ocean City to raise funds for breast cancer research. 

ALS Walk

We are proud supporters of the annual ALS Walk that helps to discover treatments and a cure for ALS, as well as helping to empower people affected by this horrible disease. 

March for Babies

Each year volunteers walk through to raise money for the March of Dimes.

Keeping our Beaches Clean

Many of the towns in our service territory are along the coast. Clean beaches contribute to a cleaner environment and the economic vitality of our entire South Jersey region. During April and October, we participate in Clean Ocean Action’s Annual Beach Sweeps. Volunteers not only clean the beaches, they record the quantity and types of debris found for data that is published annually to help identify pollution sources and aid legislators in enacting protections. For more information, visit cleanoceanaction.org.  

Supporting Local Students

Each year, our employee volunteers hold back-to-school drives in Winslow, Glassboro, Mays Landing and Carneys Point to help provide needed supplies to local schools. We also hold an annual holiday gift drive to collect gifts for children in need throughout the company’s service territory.

Supporting our Local Food Banks

It means energizing our local families, businesses, workforce, and neighborhoods through philanthropy and partnerships. That's why employees like Alexandria Likanchuk and Marcus Fortune take time to support the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, helping the nearly one million people in New Jersey that face hunger every day. Read more.
