There is wide range of need throughout the communities we serve. Our employees and the FirstEnergy Foundation make it a top priority to address those needs through volunteer opportunities and Foundation support.

Members of FirstEnergy’s Supply Chain leadership team participated in a volunteer opportunity at MedWish in Cleveland. The group sorted donated medical supplies, which will be provided to in-need organizations around the world.
