Dynegy Employees Pitch In to Keep Cincinnati Beautiful
40 employees beautify Price Hill’s Warsaw business district
Cincinnati, OH –June 28, 2016- Price Hill’s Warsaw Corridor is cleaner today, thanks to the strong partnership between Keep Cincinnati Beautiful (KCB) and Dynegy, a leading power generator and electric supplier Ohio and other states.
On Friday, June 10, 40 members from Dynegy’s Cincinnati office, Miami Fort Power Station, and Zimmer Power Station teamed up to take part in a KCB cleanup day. As part of the 2016 Great American Cleanup project, volunteers spent their workday cleaning up a recreation center, laying mulch on a playground, picking up litter, and building a chain link fence.
“Dynegy takes pride in the business we do and the communities where our customers live.” said John Kennedy, VP and General Manager, Dynegy Plant Operations. “Cincinnati is no exception and this is an important part of Dynegy’s role in Ohio.”
In addition to the time employees have spent doing volunteer work, Dynegy recently donated $10,000 to support KCB’s projects and initiatives as a part of the Great American Cleanup.
“As an organization focused on improving community environments, it’s powerful to have great employees get involved from companies like Dynegy,” said Megan Beck, KCB’s Volunteer Programs Manager. “They like to roll up their sleeves to make a noticeable difference in Cincinnati.”
Earlier this spring, Dynegy and Keep Cincinnati Beautiful representatives participated side-by-side in the Findlay Market Opening Day Parade for the Cincinnati Reds.
