Appalachian Power Contributions

Dear Friends,

Appalachian Power contributes to hundreds of organizations in Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia every year. We are invested in the communities we serve in ways extending beyond the responsibility of providing reliable electricity to our customers. We take our role as a good corporate neighbor seriously, and we intertwine that role in our daily business operations because we realize the importance of ongoing support for the programs and people who are working hard to make a difference in the lives of so many.

At times, our employees step out of their traditional job responsibilities by participating in company-sponsored activities. For example, last year about 315 employees and retirees read aloud to students in West Virginia, Virginia and Tennessee as part of our participation in Read to Me Day. We visited about 420 elementary schools, read the same book and left a copy as a gift for the school library. Since 2001, Appalachian Power has donated more than 4,400 books to school libraries and read aloud to nearly 200,000 students.

Our employees volunteer their time coaching Little League, serving on local boards or taking part in various community projects. Having caring and generous employees is a bonus for Appalachian Power and enhances our community outreach efforts.

We proudly share the following report as a snapshot of the groups supported by Appalachian Power over the past year. There are so many organizations actively bringing about positive change in the lives of so many, and Appalachian Power is happy to play at least a small role in providing financial and volunteer resources to their causes.

Sincerely,
Charles Patton
