Caring for Communities
Fresh paint, 100 acts of appreciation and shining a light on veterans were just a few of the ways AEP team members cared for communities last year.
Public Service Company of Oklahoma employees went all out during the inaugural Fresh Paint Days sponsored by the non-profit Keep Oklahoma Beautiful. During a six-week period, 125 employee volunteers along with others descended upon their local communities to beautify buildings and parks. Locations included senior centers in Chouteau and Ketcham; three buildings in Chelsea; the Broken Arrow Museum in Tulsa; a recycling center in McAlester; and the Colgate City Hall. Volunteers also spruced up three playgrounds in Hobart and the historic Randelett Park in Anadarko with new paint.
Employees at Appalachian Power’s Pineville Service Center helped honor military veterans. They collected $1,300 in contributions to cover the cost of lighting and electrical service at the new Veteran’s War Memorial in Oceana, WV. They also purchased commemorative bricks to recognize the service of three fellow employees. A dedication ceremony was held on November 11.
Kentucky Power celebrated its centennial year of service by completing 100 Acts of Appreciation in 2019 focused on customers and contributing to communities in its 20-county service area. Whether through employee volunteers or financial contributions, the yearlong campaign touched every aspect of community life: education, hunger relief, economic development, environment and community arts and entertainment.
