Employee Volunteering

At Atlantic City Electric, we believe in giving back to the communities in which we live and work. Through our employee volunteer network, “Energy for the Community,” 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 Show their Energy for the Community 

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Walking for Charity

Each year, employee volunteers walk for a number of important area organizations.

Heart Walk

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.

Breast Cancer Walk

Each year, employees walk the boardwalk in Ocean City to raise funds for breast cancer research. 

ALS Walk

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. 

March for Babies

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. 

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. 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  

Supporting Local Students

Each year, our employee volunteers hold back-to-school drives in Winslow, Glassboro, Mays Landing and Carneys Point to help provide needed supplies to local schools. We also hold an annual holiday gift drive to collect gifts for children in need throughout the company’s service territory.    

Supporting our Local Food Banks

In November, we worked in collaboration with the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, Southern Branch, to participate in a volunteer event at the FoodBank’s Egg Harbor Township, N.J., location to benefit those in need.

To support this volunteer event, Atlantic City Electric held food drives across various company locations resulting in nearly 1,700 pounds of food collected to help stock the cupboards of the FoodBank.  “Atlantic City Electric has a longstanding commitment to the FoodBank,” said Vince Maione, Atlantic City Electric region president. “We believe it’s important to support local organizations, like the FoodBank, that make a difference in the lives of others. We have an obligation to help meet the needs of residents and our customers by assisting organizations that benefit those in need." ​

Supporting the Special Olympics

We are a long-time supporter of Special Olympics New Jersey (SONJ). Each year, we volunteer in a variety of local Special Olympics events, including the Special Olympics Village in Wildwood and the State Floor Hockey Tournament. 
• Employees ‘Ride to the Tide’ to support the Special Olympics 

• Employees clean up the shores of the Christina River at Fox Point Park in Wilmington, Del.

• Employees take time out of their week to support the CHEER Meals on Wheels program
