Keeping Education Strong

May 5, 2021

Here are some examples of our company’s efforts to keeping education and our youth a top priority.

The Lebanon Valley organization received a $6,000 FirstEnergy Foundation check. The funds will assist with the printing of a bilingual version of The Adventures of Lebanon Lilly. The book follows Lilly, a cow, throughout Lebanon County, highlighting various points of interest and attractions. The bilingual version serves the needs of the diverse population within the region.

Shayne Smith, consultant, Regional External Affairs, Met-Ed (r.), presented a $1,000 FirstEnergy Foundation check to Jessica Brubaker, co-founder and executive director, Keystone Kidspace in York, Pa. Keystone is a new hands-on educational learning center designed to bring innovative educational programming to families across the region. The focus will be on providing kids the opportunity to work with real tools and materials.

The FirstEnergy Foundation contributed $1,500 to 18 South Youth Ministries in Red Lion, Pa. The center serves troubled teens in the Red Lion/Dallastown area by providing a safe, nonjudgmental, positive space to have fun, eat a prepared meal and experience fellowship with volunteers and mentors. Our funds will be used toward installing a new air-conditioning system in the building.

At the check presentation are Donald Smith Jr., Customer Support representative, Met-Ed (l.), and 18 South’s Alia Pilsbury.
