Employees Hit The Trail For Community Clean Up
Nearly 90 Dominion Energy employees in Richmond recently gathered to clean up along the city’s historic Liberty Trail and gather donations for local community-assistance organizations as part of a “Community Day 2017” initiative.
Employees collected about 30 bags of trash along the trail – a 6.2-mile self-guided route that winds by many of Richmond’s historic sites and landmarks, including Capitol Square, Brown’s Island, St. John’s Church, the Virginia Holocaust Museum, and the Black History Museum.
Participants also packaged and donated 130 bags of toiletries, consisting of deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, conditioner and diapers, to the Richmond Salvation Army.
Other employees completed 30 no-sew blankets that will be donated to the South Richmond Adult Day Care Center for Seniors.
“It is quite energizing and motivating for our team to be able to take time out together to share in Community Day,” said Tanya Ross, director–Customer Revenue Management. “Each year, the event is organized by members from Billing, Payment, Credit, and EnergyShare. They may not often work together in the normal course of business, but this gives them the opportunity to get to know colleagues from other areas of our team.”
