Approximately 225 Atlantic City Electric employees, family and friends participated in the 2016 American Heart Association's 25th Annual Southern New Jersey Spring Heart Walk on the Ocean City boardwalk. Atlantic City Electric, led by 14 Heart Captains, raised or donated more than $24,000 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.
Each year, employees walk the boardwalk in Ocean City to raise funds for breast cancer research.
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.
Each year volunteers walk through to raise money for the March of Dimes. In the last 13 years, Atlantic City Electric has raised more than $55,000 for the March of Dimes.
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.
