Giving Back to the Community

One way TVA carries out its mission of serving the people of the Tennessee Valley is by being a good neighbor and supporting the community.

Some of the not-for-profit groups we have supported in the Tri-Cities area include Speedway Children’s Charities, the Hands On Museum, Second Harvest Food Bank, the Boone Lake Association and the ETSU Eagle Cam. TVA is also a sponsor of the First LEGO Robotics competition and other STEM education programs in the Tri-Cities area. In addition to monetary support, the Boone Dam project regularly gives surplus items to local charity. In the photo below, TVA Boone Dam workers pose with a few of the 350 gallons of surplus paint recently donated to the Kingswood School for Children in Bean Station.
