Project Plant It! Expands to 18 States
With a shared goal to support veterans inside the company and in the community, members of the WV chapter of the Dominion Energy Veterans Resource Group recently hosted a service project to assemble 500 Brown Bags for Vets. Each quarter, members of the group host this service project to provide non-perishable lunches for veterans traveling two hours by bus from the local VA Medical Center to Pittsburgh, PA for medical testing and procedures. In addition to providing a nutritious meal, volunteers hope the care packages will show the company’s gratitude and remind recipients that someone cares.
Dominion Energy’s Veterans Resource Group was created to recognize the company’s continued commitment to those who serve. In addition to service projects like this, the Veterans Resource Group seeks to build on Dominion Energy’s efforts to attract and develop those who have served in the armed forces. Currently, one in five new hires at Dominion Energy is a veteran, ranking #5 on G.I. Jobs’ list of top military-friendly companies. Dominion Energy also received the highest ranking of any energy company in 2018 and is a founding partner in the national Troops to Energy Jobs, helping military members find rewarding careers in the energy industry.
