Have a Community Project?
Each year, Leadership Fairfax solicits community service projects from local non-profits for our Emerging Leaders Institute and Honors College Connects teams to work on. Interested non-profits who would like to find out more about these projects are invited to call Moniek at 703.752.7504. Proposals will be accepted in August 2013.
Dominion is one of the nation's largest electric power and natural gas companies. In Virginia, operating as Dominion Virginia Power with close to 2.5 million electric customers, it demonstrates corporate responsibility by investing in the community, supporting local diverse businesses and practicing responsible environmental stewardship. In 2012, Dominion, its charitable foundation, and employees donated more than $20 million and 165,000 volunteer hours in the areas it serves.
One example of their work is their support for the Assistance League of Northern Virginia's Weekend Food for Kids program that helps deliver food to children of low income families in the City of Alexandria, Fairfax County, and Prince William County who rely on subsidized meals on school days. In 2012, Dominion Virginia Power provided a Foundation grant of $20,000 to expand the program and raise the level of coverage of eligible students to 80% at the schools currently served. Dominion also used their facilties to pack and prepare the food and their fleet to deliver it. They further worked with the Assistance League of Northern Virginia to help spread the word about the program and assisted the League in leveraging the grants from Dominion to get other corporate support throughout the region.
Hats off to Dominion for their support of this region and kids in need. You can learn more about Dominion at www.dom.com, follow them on twitter @domvapower, or like them on Facebook.
