As a District Service Representative Dominique handles time entry and materials reconciliation, known as asbuilting, for Winslow Operations. She also handles property damage claims and collects police reports when they are necessary for repairs. She has been with Atlantic City Electric since 2012 and here has found a group of inspirational coworkers who give their time to help others both inside and outside of the office.
“Volunteering is both intrinsically and extrinsically good,” she states. “Here at Atlantic City Electric, I’ve found a core group of colleagues who believe in helping those who need it most. Not only does volunteering help others, it helps to build strong camaraderie inside the office.”
Dominique, along with colleagues Tanya Fowler, Christine Thomas and Cynthia Carey have made an impact in their service area’s communities by spearheading Back-to-School Book Bag Drives for local schools (this year was Winslow Township) and Holiday Toy Drives to support Toys For Tots. She has also participated in the Atlantic City Electric VIP program United Way programs and helped out at last year’s Special Olympics New Jersey Volleyball Tournament.
Outside of the office she is an active volunteer with her local St. Vincent de Paul Society. Affiliated with her local parish, the Society staffs a food pantry two days a week that helps to feed local families in need. They also direct clients to federally and state funded financial assistance programs for utility bills and rent for qualified families.
“For me, it’s a very important thing to help the needy. It preserves and enhances the best qualities in people. What I do is faith-based, I’m blessed to be able to do for myself and to have more than what I need. There are many out there who are in need of those very same things I’ve never had to go without, and sometimes we may not realize how close to home those people are. Charity is the place where humanity shines,” she added.
