Dominion volunteers conduct hundreds of projects each year throughout Dominion's area and many focus on the environment and education. The following are just a few examples of Dominion volunteers' commitment to their diverse communities:
School partnerships allow volunteers to mentor at-risk children during the school day. In Richmond, volunteers have mentored at Blackwell Elementary near the company's headquarters since 1993. Volunteers encourage students to stay in school, complete their assignments and strive to make good decisions.
Volunteers throughout Dominion deliver Meals on Wheels to elderly homebound residents. In Canton, Ohio, Dominion volunteers serve meals to local seniors during an annual Stark County Senior Day luncheon. It's a long-standing tradition that Dominion volunteers - and seniors from Stark County - enjoy.
Volunteers from Dominion's Surry Power Station recently refurbished a playground at SKYANCHOR camp, a disabilities awareness camp, in rural Surry County, Virginia. The camp offers disabilities awareness training to thousands of Boy and Girl Scouts each year.
Dominion volunteers have supported the Diversity Day Walk in downtown Cleveland for the past several years. The walk, sponsored by the National Conference for Community and Justice, is designed to celebrate diversity, demonstrate the community coming together, and to raise funds for NCCJ youth programs.
