Williamsport — More than 100 less fortunate children in Washington County had a brighter Christmas this year, thanks to the efforts of Potomac Edison employees in partnership with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve.
Employees at Potomac Edison's regional headquarters donated about 150 new, unwrapped toys to the Marines' local Toys for Tots collection.
"I appreciate the support received from all our employees, including the members of Utility Workers Union of America (UWUA) Local 102. Their generosity made our first-ever Williamsport campaign a resounding success," said James V. Fakult, president, Potomac Edison Maryland Operations. "As we struggle through rocky economic times, it is important for all of us to find a way to share our blessings with others."
Founded in 1947, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program has collected and distributed nearly 435 million toys to needy children.
