FirstEnergy provided corporate support for the City of Springfield Community Development Department’s CultureFest 2020 which is scheduled for September. Due to COVID-19, this event will be held through various digital platforms demonstrating the diversity of the town and encouraging workplaces and organizations to reflect this diversity in their hiring practices and board composition.

FirstEnergy has supported this event for the last several years, at a $500 level. The 2020 contribution was increased to $1,500. In keeping with social distancing measures, Joshua Cross, consultant, Regional External Affairs, mailed the check.
