FirstEnergy Employees Donate More Than 2.6 Million Meals During 2013 Harvest For Hunger Campaign

AKRON, Ohio, May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- From bake sales to salad bars to online auctions and donations of cash and canned goods, FirstEnergy Corp. (NYSE: FE) employees contributed the equivalent of more than 2.6 million meals during the recently completed 2013 Harvest for Hunger campaign.  Overall, FirstEnergy employees raised more than $356,000 and contributed approximately 69 tons of food to local food banks and hunger centers, the equivalent of approximately 168 meals for each of the company's 16,000 employees.

"In this challenging economy, our employees once again have shown their creativity, compassion and generosity through their support of this year's Harvest for Hunger campaign," said Anthony J. Alexander, president and chief executive officer of FirstEnergy. "Their exceptional efforts will address a real concern in our communities."

The dollars raised and food contributed was part of a friendly competition conducted by FirstEnergy employees, their business groups, and company locations. Donations to Harvest for Hunger help stock the cupboards of more than 40 food banks and organizations throughout Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, West Virginia, Maryland, and New York.

FirstEnergy employees have been long-time champions of giving to Harvest for Hunger or other Feeding American Network affiliates.  Since 2001, company employees have contributed more than $3.1 million in cash and more than 1 million pounds of food to help fight hunger, which represents the equivalent of more than 22 million meals.
