Norfolk, VA – (August 22, 2013) – On Friday, September 13, Dominion Enterprises employees will put down their laptops and roll up their sleeves to make a lasting impact on their communities during the United Way’s 22nd Annual Day of Caring.
This year, a record-breaking 170 employees from Dominion’s downtown Norfolk headquarters will spend the day working at various project sites for agencies like ForKids, Habitat for Humanity, and the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia.
For the last fifteen years, Dominion Enterprises has participated in the United Way Day of Caring to give back to the community in a variety of ways. “It has become an important part of our corporate culture,” said Paige Bouma, Dominion Enterprises United Way Committee Chair. “DE employees look forward to this event every year, and our participation continues to grow. Within 24 hours, all of the volunteer spots were full,” according to Susan Blake, Dominion Enterprises Vice President of Human Resources.
“Since 1998, more than 900 Dominion Enterprises volunteers have participated in the Day of Caring. Over the past five years, Dominion’s United Way campaign has been among the top five in our community. The company and its employees embody the true spirit of corporate philanthropy in so many ways. We’re proud to have them as a partner,” said Pam Smith-Rodden, Vice President of Communication and Marketing for the United Way of South Hampton Roads.
