Summer is in full swing, and one of our biggest volunteer events is the FirstEnergy All-American Soap Box Derby. Each year, our employees support this legacy event that draws racers and spectators worldwide. As part of the FirstEnergy team, you can choose from a variety of two- to four-hour shifts. Keep in mind, this is a good way to use your Volunteer Time Off hours! And, all participants will be invited to a Volunteer Appreciation Day in August for food, fun and the opportunity to race a soap box car.

Derby events will be held the week of July 14 through race day at Derby Downs on Saturday, July 20. Volunteer opportunities are available on the site, (scroll down to the positions under the “07/20/2019” heading). You also can view information on specific volunteer positions.

If you have questions, contact Neil Fentner, supervisor, IT Solutions, at, 850-2661, or Rachel Oliver, assistant business analyst,, at 825-5109. Neil and Rachel are enjoying their sixth year as FirstEnergy All-American Soap Box Derby volunteers.
