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.

Atlantic City Electric Shows their Energy for the Community

Breast Cancer Walk

Each year, Atlantic City Electric celebrates the month of October by raising awareness and fund for the American Cancer Society. Fundraisers include Pink Lemonade Stands, a Wall of Hope, and PINK Party! Employees, joined by family and friends, participate in the Making Strides Walk in Ocean City, where Atlantic City Electric is the annual Boardwalk sponsor.

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. In both the spring and fall, 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 Families

Each year, we host many drives in Bridgeton, Pleasantville, Cape May, West Creek, Winslow, Glassboro, Mays Landing and Carneys Point to help provide support to local families. These include a Back-to-School drive so that students in our area can go to school prepared. We also hold an annual food, coat, and holiday gift drive to collect for our local communities in need throughout the company's service territory. 

National Volunteer Month

April is a great time to get out and power our local communities with volunteer time! At Atlantic City Electric, we value our partnerships with many nonprofits and environmental organizations.

Our employees love to visit Laurie and all the animals at The Funny Farm Rescue. Located in our service territory, the sanctuary is dedicated to caring for abused and abandoned animals. They provide food, shelter, medical care, compassion and love for the rest of their natural lives in a permanent, safe and healthy environment. Atlantic City Employees volunteer regularly at the farm providing cage maintenance, general landscape care, and animal interaction.

Supporting our Local Food Banks

We believe that being a part of our communities is about more than power lines and infrastructure. 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.
