For decades, we have supported the United Way and its mission to Live United. The United Way improves the lives of South Jersey individuals and families by providing them with the tools, services and expertise to become stronger and more independent. Last year, we raised nearly $100,000 for the United Way through employee and retiree donations and employee-organized events.
Representatives of Atlantic City Electric and Atlantic City mayor Don Guardian joined members of United Way of Atlantic and Cape May counties at a ribbon cutting ceremony to commemorate the Born Learning Trail and Little Free Library located within Gardner's Basin in Atlantic City. Approximately 30 children from three Atlantic City schools attended the event.
Built by Atlantic City Electric volunteers during United Way’s Day of Action in June, 2015, the Born Learning Trail provides interactive learning activities for young children. The Little Free Library was created to help improve literacy and increase access to books by providing a place families can take and leave age-appropriate, child-friendly books.
ACE representatives in attendance were presented with a plaque for their dedication in constructing the learning trail and children’s library. The plaque is permanently displayed at a location in close proximity to the library within Gardner’s Basin. ACE volunteers also constructed a Born Learning Trail at Heritage Park in Absecon, N.J. in June, 2014.

We joined Absecon officials and United Way Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey to officially open the Born Learning Trail which includes nine interactive learning activities for caregivers and young children. The trail was constructed by our employees as part of United Way’s National Day of Action in June.
