MLGW and TVA are showing their commitment to giving back to the Mid-South community. On Wednesday, August 15 at 1 p.m., employees from the two organizations will sort through canned food donations and prepare boxes for needy families at the Mid-South Food Bank’s Perkins warehouse, 3834 Knight Rd.
The utility and its electricity provider will team up before TVA’s EnergyRight® Solutions employee-wide meeting in Memphis.
“We actively seek opportunities to give back to the communities in which we serve, simply because we care and want these areas to grow and thrive both now and far into the future. Service projects like this one are an investment of time and energy that we proudly give to show our commitment to empowering communities,” said Cindy Herron, vice president of TVA EnergyRight® Solutions. “We value working alongside MLGW and other partners who are defined by the same spirit of servanthood.”
Each year, MLGW departments work internally to raise funds and support the Mid-South Food Bank through its Operation Feed the Need Campaign. In 2017, employees from the utility donated more than $37,000.
“MLGW employees consistently give back to many organizations in the Mid-South,” said J.T. Young, President and CEO of MLGW. “We will continue to be a hands-on presence; donating our time, dollars and lending a helping hand to those in need. Partnering with TVA at the Mid-South Food Bank is a small way we can support their mission to change lives by eliminating hunger in the Mid-South.”
MLGW is the largest three-service public power utility in the nation, serving more than 431,000 customers in Memphis and
