TVA Employee Giving Campaign Tops $2 Million for Charities
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. ― Tennessee Valley Authority employees, retirees and contractors raised more than $2 million for hundreds of nonprofit organizations as part of the 2016 Combined Federal Campaign.
“TVA’s commitment to CFC is a great example of how we take our mission of service to heart,” said Doug Perry, chair of the Greater Chattanooga Area campaign.
“And it’s not just about money being raised,” added Justin Maierhofer, chair of the Smoky Mountain Region CFC. “During the campaign, there were thousands of service hours spent on behalf of local charities that need our help.”
In addition to the funds raised by the 2016 campaign, TVA employees donated more than 8,000 hours of service to nonprofits across the Tennessee Valley through “Day of Caring” events. More than a thousand employees across TVA participated.
