FULTON, NY – Entergy Nuclear Northeast recently presented the United Way of Greater Oswego County with a corporate check in support of the United Wayâ€™s Annual Campaign.
Each year Entergy Corporate matches the funds raised through their employee campaign in support of the United Way dollar for dollar.
This year more than 170 Entergy employees lent their financial support to the United Way.
Their generous donations resulted in an increase of more than 17%.
Entergyâ€™s support plays a major role in the success of the United Wayâ€™s annual campaign, as their combined contribution was approximately $122,000.
â€œEntergy and our employees at the FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant have always had a strong sense of community and support Oswego County in numerous ways,â€ said campaign coordinator for Entergyâ€™s United Way campaign Brian Finn. â€œSupporting the United Way makes sense because the money stays local and is used to support over 35 human services programs in our area.â€
Executive Director of the United Way of Greater Oswego County Melanie Trexler was happy to receive the donation and praised Entergy and their employees.
â€œEntergy continues to be a faithful supporter of the United Way. The steadfast commitment of Entergy and their caring employees to the United Way exemplifies their generosity and captures the essence of our â€˜Live Unitedâ€™ concept. Entergyâ€™s employees truly gave from their heart this year as their contributions exceeded those of last year despite these trying economic conditions. Their significant contribution to our annual campaign helps us to continue to provide funding for the many human services programs that are administered through our member agency programs and provide relief to those in need in Oswego County,â€ she said.
