2018 United Way Day of Action/Day of Caring Events

November 30, 2018

Many of our employees spent their United Way Day of Action/Day of Caring repairing and sprucing up the homes of local elderly and low-income residents. Here are a few examples:

Potomac Edison’s volunteer team of 28 employees completed 19 projects at six residential locations for the Washington County United Way Day of Caring. In the photo are (l.-r.) Andrea Main, Bobby Watson, Jason Koppenhaver and Fred Uccellini. They replaced fencing at a residence in Hagerstown, Md.

During the United Way of Summit County’s Day of Caring, Akron Control Center employees certainly were busy painting, landscaping, removing an old fence and handling basic home repairs at two of the Packard Institute’s Recovery Residences in Akron.

The Lawrence County United Way greatly benefited from Penn Power employees’ Day of Caring efforts. Twenty-two Penn Power employees cleaned and spread mulch at a local park; assisted with the restoration of buildings in New Castle; installed a new hand rail; assisted the United Way local office with general office work; and delivered household items to families settling in the area after being displaced by last year’s hurricane in Puerto Rico

Ohio Edisonemployees participated in the United Way of Ashland County’s Day of Caring. Volunteers assisted elderly, disabled and qualifying households/families with light yard work, including pulling weeds, trimming bushes and raking leaves.
