OSWEGO, NY – Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station, owned and operated by Constellation Energy Nuclear Group, is fortunate to operate in the greater Oswego community. We will continue to be a responsible neighbor and we are proud to give back to our community. We are honored to once again support the Friends of Oswego County Hospice by sponsoring the 15th annual Oswego County Hospice Cup Regatta & Walk/Run for Hope, which takes place on June 7 at the Oswego Yacht Club/International Marina.
The Friends of Oswego County Hospice is a not-for-profit organization that provides financial support and relief to hospice patients at a time when they need it most.
In 2013, the organization raised nearly $27,000 and over the past 14 years, the regatta has raised more than $275,000 to defray costs of non-medical expenses for patients and families, supported the hospice volunteer program and allowed for continued operation of Camp Rainbow of Hope, a free bereavement program for children who have experienced the loss of a loved one.
“We are also well-represented through the volunteer efforts of employees and their families. Nine Mile Point is proud of our many employees who volunteer as firefighters and sports coaches, in parent-teacher organizations and a host of other capacities unaffiliated with the company. Volunteerism and contributing to worthy causes are an integral part of the culture at Nine Mile Point,” said NMP site vice president Chris Costanzo.
A cross-section of employees, collectively known as NMPNS’ Community Council, evaluates and responds to requests for aid from our surrounding community.
The council focuses primarily on local needs, and we are proudly represented throughout the community at charitable events – through the monetary donations of both the company and employees.
