If donations were baseball plays, this was a grand slam! In August, Entergy Mississippi presented a check totaling $418,237 to the Salvation Army during Power to Care night at Trustmark Park. The donation from our shareholders, employees and customers set a new annual fundraising record for The Power to Care, which helps elderly and disabled customers pay their electricity bills in times of financial crisis.
Donations help vulnerable customers pay utility bills.
Entergy is working to make power affordable and reliable for customers, and cleaner for the environment.
Since 2012, the company’s legal pro bono program increased the commitment of company lawyers and paralegals to provide free legal assistance to some of the most vulnerable citizens living in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
Entergy won the award for its support of the lineman certification programs at Delgado Community College and Fletcher Technical Community College.
Entergy serviceman Justin Mitcham has been keeping the power flowing in the Deep East Texas area of Woodville since 2015, and this week he was honored as Lineman of the Game during the Saints vs. Cowboys match.
Even with work and home obligations, Entergy Louisiana employees find time to help others. Whether preparing taxes for low-income customers, helping families after disaster strikes or working with students with different learning levels, volunteering is just one way employees share their time and talents.
Entergy’s dedicated and generous customers, employees and shareholders contributed $1.1 million in Louisiana to support The Power to Care, Entergy’s primary low-income assistance program which provides emergency utility bill payment assistance to elderly and disabled customers in their time of need.
Entergy’s vision, “We Power Life,” means much more than just keeping the lights on and the power safely flowing.
