Appalachian Power Contributions

Dear Friends,

The rolling hills of West Virginia, Virginia and Tennessee are more than just where Appalachian Power operates. They are where our customers live, and where our employees live as well. When we say we are committed to the communities we serve, we mean we’re committed to our home.

Appalachian Power is invested in our communities in ways beyond providing reliable electricity to our customers. Our employees serve on local boards, participate in community projects and volunteer countless hours. We support hundreds of organizations with financial contributions so they may continue to make a difference here at home.

Last year, we supported dozens of food pantries, the Alzheimer’s Association, the March of Dimes and the American Cancer Society, just to name a few. We also gave to schools, volunteer fire departments, public libraries and organizations that support the arts.

In addition to these smaller contributions, the AEP Foundation last year awarded $1.4 million in grants throughout our service territory. This figure included grants to organizations like the United Way, Boys & Girls Clubs and universities in Virginia and West Virginia.

There are many organizations actively bringing about positive change in the lives of so many. We’re happy to play at least a small role in providing financial and volunteer resources to these groups that make our communities great places to live.

Sincerely,

Chris Beam
President & Chief Operating Officer
Appalachian Power Company
