Martin Luther King Day of Service is a time when many people go out into their communities and dedicate a day of service and giving back. Georgia Power (GP) holds it’s employees to the same standards, focusing on community service.
This year over 1,000 GP employees will be serving their community on MLK Day of Service. This comes on the heels of the company’s record-breaking 1110,000 volunteer hours in 2015 which helps reinforce Georgia Power’s commitment to “being citizens wherever we serve”, according to a release sent by the company.
“Dr. King’s belief in service to all resonates strongly throughout Georgia and the best way to honor his legacy is through volunteering and making a positive impact in the communities we serve,” said Paul Bowers, chairman, president and CEO of Georgia Power. “MLK Day of Service continues to be a day on, not a day off, for Georgia Power employees across the state.”
This year’s volunteering includes 40 separate projects in various communities across Georgia, including assembling food pantry boxes, painting facilities and constructing beds for women and children’s shelters.
Be sure to go out into your community, even for just a few hours, and give back.
