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 Con Edison and O&R donate their own time and resources through our volunteer program to give back to the communities we serve. During 2019, 635 Con Edison and O&R employees volunteered 6,300 hours of their own time at over 170 company-sponsored events. Whether it’s helping at a soup kitchen, installing solar LED lights through residential areas to create safer neighborhoods, building composts using 6,000 pounds of food-scraps, planting and pruning trees, re-seeding a formerly barren area of the Bronx River coastline, mentoring students, rehabilitating homes for veterans, career coaching, or any number of other activities, volunteering gives our employees renewed energy, fulfillment and the happiness of knowing they made a difference in their community.
A dedicated employee engagement platform makes it easy for employees, as well as retirees and their families, to choose how to give back.
