Allegheny Energy employees donate nearly $17K to United Way

August 17, 2009

GREENSBURG, Pa. -- Allegheny Energy recently donated nearly $17,000 to the United Way of Washington County as a result of the company's 2008 employee donation campaign.

For more than 30 years, Allegheny employees have donated their time, energy and financial support to United Way.

Each year, this long-standing partnership benefits more than 50 United Way chapters in Allegheny's Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia service territories.

Throughout the company's four-state service area, the 2008 campaign raised more than $650,000, including employee donations and contributions from Allegheny's corporate match program.

"Thanks to the generosity of our employees, the 2008 United Way campaign eclipsed the company's goal," said Paul Evanson, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Allegheny Energy. "The amount of money raised -- especially during these uncertain economic times -- speaks volumes about the type of people who work at our company."
