We have a long history of supporting both local and national events that help raise awareness in sustainability, safety and wellness. Below you will find some of the annual events we either host or support.
Our employees and their family members join the Anacostia Watershed Society, the District Department of the Environment and other local organizations on Earth Day to clean up the shoreline along the Anacostia River. In past events, our volunteer cleanup effort filled two industrial 40-yard refuse containers with trash and recyclable materials.
Our employees also participate in the March for Babies hosted by March of Dimes. March for Babies supports research and programs that help women have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. This effort also helps families with a baby in newborn intensive care.
The Montgomery County Agricultural Fair is a wonderful community based event that helps bring family fun and sustainability together. At our booth, we strive to raise awareness of the different energy saving programs we offer.
Our Golf and Tennis Classic event invites corporate sponsors to donate towards helping local families in need with their winter energy bills. The tournament has raised more than $1.3 million dollars since its inception.
Over many years, we have supported the American Heart Association’s (AHA) annual Heart Walk event in hopes of raising essential funding for cardiovascular research. Our great partnership with AHA is based on a joint commitment to employee safety and wellness.
We had the great pleasure to be the first business to ring the bell and kick off the 2013 Salvation Army Red Kettle campaign. Our volunteers rang the bell daily at Edison Place to help raise awareness for donations of food, clothing and toys for families in need.
We have been the lead sponsors of Zoolights for six consecutive years. This all LED holiday light show is free at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. Come visit the DC-area in the winter evenings and you will be delighted by all the beautiful (and energy efficient) lights! Our volunteers are on hand to provide simple tips to help you save energy and money.
