From computer donations to event sponsorships – the FirstEnergy Foundation teamed up with Met-Ed employees to make a difference.
Jenn Rivera, consultant, External Affairs (l.), delivered five personal computers to Michelle Dech, director, LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning) Center of Greater Reading. The equipment will be available to anyone using the center’s new computer room.
Joe Malda, consultant, Regional External Affairs (r.), presented a $2,500 FirstEnergy Foundation check to Mike Jefferson, director of Employment and Training at Crispus Attucks Center in York, Pa. Crispus Attucks is a non-profit organization that provides education and human services, community development and affordable housing to enhance the quality of life for a diverse population. Founded in 1931, the association takes its name from hero Crispus Attucks, a freed African American slave who was among the first to die in the American Revolution. Our funds will support the center’s employment and training program.
