North Kent Service Center Employees Present $1,000 To Nonprofit

JACKSON, Mich., Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Employees at the North Kent Service Center in Sparta today presented a $1,000 grant from the Consumers Energy Foundation to the Feeding America West Michigan Food Bank.

North Kent employees earned the chance to select a local nonprofit organization to receive a foundation grant because they were finalists in Consumers Energy's companywide "Ethics in Action" awards program. The program recognizes employees who display the highest commitment to compliance and ethical standards.

North Kent management and Consumers Energy senior executives presented the $1,000 check to Feeding America West Michigan Food Bank chief executive officer Kenneth Estelle at a ceremony at the service center.

"We believe giving back is a major component of what it means to be a highly ethical company," said David Mengebier, chief compliance officer for Consumers Energy and its parent company, CMS Energy. "That's why this connection between our internal dedication to compliance and ethics and our external philanthropic efforts is so unique and meaningful."

In addition to North Kent, Consumers Energy honored the Macomb Service Center ( Clinton Twp.) as a finalist. The Five Channels Hydroelectric Dam near Mio won the grand prize, and nine individual employees also were recognized.

"It's critical to recognize employees whose decisions help promote a strong culture of ethics and compliance," Mengebier said. "Their courage and integrity embody the values that have served our company well for the past 125 years."

Consumers Energy, the principal subsidiary of CMS Energy (NYSE: CMS), provides natural gas and electricity to 6.8 million of Michigan's 10 million residents in all 68 Lower Peninsula counties.
