Ice Sculptures and Angels

February 4, 2020

​In addition to employees giving back to those in need during the holidays, the FirstEnergy Foundation lends a hand. Let’s take a look at a few charitable holiday activities in the Penelec and Potomac Edison service areas.


The FirstEnergy Foundation contributed to holiday fun by sponsoring an ice sculpture for the Juniata River Valley Festival of Ice held in downtown Lewistown.

With the sculpture are, Gary Parzanese, retired line supervisor (l.), and Stu Miller, distribution technician IV (r.), with family members (kneeling).

A group of Towanda employees participated in the Bradford County Salvation Army Angel Tree project. Employees donated clothing, coats, boots, pajamas and toys. They provided Christmas gifts for 35 needy children.
