As the pandemic continues creating economic hardships for many Americans, free tax-return assistance provided by Entergy volunteers has been vital in helping customers receive Earned Income Tax Credits, one of the most effective tools for lifting low-income workers and their families above the poverty line.
Volunteering is one of the most important ways that Entergy employees power life in our communities. Entergy employees and retirees have given more than one million hours in volunteer service since official tracking began in April 2008. Their hours serving local communities and supporting nonprofits translates into more than $25 million in economic impact.
