Customer & Community
Enhancing the fabric of our communities is not only what we do, it’s who we are. We provide financial support, in-kind contributions, and board service to hundreds of nonprofits dedicated to the arts, environmental stewardship, community, civics, and education.
Employees at CECONY and O&R donate their own time and resources through our volunteer program to give back to the communities we serve. During 2016, CECONY and O&R employees volunteered more than 12,000 hours of their own time at over 250 events. Whether it’s volunteering at a soup kitchen, cleaning up parks, planting and pruning trees, mentoring students, serving disadvantaged people, rehabilitating homes for veterans, career coaching, or any number of other activities, the happiness, fulfillment, and renewed energy our employees experience is priceless. A dedicated employee engagement platform that lists volunteering events makes it easy for employees, as well as retirees and their families, to give back.
