MAYS LANDING, N.J. (Sept. 23, 2020) – Atlantic City Electric has recognized four employees, Ronald Mascola, Sean Newlin, Sharon Roach and Karen Stanford, for their community volunteer work at the company's virtual Powering Communities Employee Volunteer Awards. To recognize the employees' hard work, Atlantic City Electric's parent company, Exelon, announced a combined $20,000 in charitable contributions to the local nonprofits that the award winners support. During COVID-19, when the need for support is greater than ever, Atlantic City Electric and its employees have continued to find innovative ways to continue volunteering efforts and supporting local nonprofits.
"Our employee volunteers are the heart and soul of our efforts to give back to the communities we serve," said Mellanie Kai Lassiter, senior manager of Corporate Relations for Pepco Holdings, which includes Atlantic City Electric. "Every year their contributions never cease to amaze and inspire, and I am so glad we can recognize them and their nonprofit partners through our Powering Communities program."
This year's Powering Communities Employee Volunteer Award winners were selected for their contributions to Hammonton Volunteer Fire Company, Bianca's Kids and Beautiful Gates Outreach Center.
This year, 24 employees across the Exelon family of companies were recognized for their efforts and their nonprofit partners each received grants from the company. An external selection committee, comprised of leaders from the nonprofit community, selected these dedicated individuals for their volunteer efforts. Since 2007, the awards program has recognized more than 240 employees and provided more than $1.5 million to nonprofit partners.
Through the Powering Communities program, hundreds of Atlantic City Electric employees volunteer annually to support initiatives including arts and culture, community development, environmental sustainability, and education initiatives that align with the company's purpose of powering a cleaner and brighter future for its customers and communities.
In 2019, Atlantic City Electric contributed more than $1.3 million to local nonprofits, while its employees volunteered nearly 20,500 hours—which is more than 2,500 work days—to benefit approximately 300 organizations throughout southern New Jersey. Together, employees at Atlantic City Electric and the Exelon family of companies volunteered more than 250,000 hours with a variety of organizations across the country in 2019.
