CHARLOTTE, N.C., November 3, 2014 – As a result of the U.S. regional campaign, AREVA employees and corporate giving will donate greater than $500,000 to charitable organizations in the more than 30 U.S. communities where AREVA Inc. operates.
“At AREVA, forward-looking energy means more than providing products and services to ensure the safety and reliability of nuclear power plants,” said Gary Mignogna, president and CEO of AREVA Inc. “It means that we are actively engaging with and supporting our local communities by providing the support to sustain the beneficial services offered by local charitable organizations.”
Three community highlights from AREVA’s annual Directed Giving Campaign, facilitated by the United Way:
AREVA Inc. donated more than $115,000 to local charitable organizations in the Charlotte area. The campaign included employee pledges to the charitable organizations of their choice and an annual corporate contribution to United Way of Central Carolinas. Employees directed their gifts to several organizations, including United Way of Central Carolinas, Humane Society of Concord & Greater Cabarrus County, and the Charlotte Area Command of the Salvation Army. Additionally, employees worked together to support the Urban Ministry Center, Boys & Girls Club at the Salvation Army Center of Hope, and the American Red Cross by providing 682 sandwiches to feed the homeless, 200 snack bags for Boys & Girls Club participants, and more than 110 thank-you cards for U.S. troops.
In the Lynchburg community, local charitable organizations will receive more than $250,000 from AREVA’s annual campaign, including employee pledges to the charitable organizations of their choice and an annual corporate contribution to United Way of Central Virginia. Employees directed their gifts to several charities, including United Way of Central Virginia, Lynchburg Daily Bread, Meals on Wheels, and the Free Clinic of Central Virginia.
