Constellation Selects 10 New Organizations To Receive Community Champions Grants

Stocks in this article: EXC

Constellation today announced 10 new community organizations for its quarterly Community Champions grants program. During the second quarter of 2014, Constellation donated $4,500 to community organizations in Maryland, New Jersey, Georgia and Texas that support education, youth development and environmental education.

“Constellation is proud to support our customers in their commitment to making a difference in their local communities,” said Bruce Stewart, senior vice president and chief marketing officer for Constellation. “Since December 2013, Constellation has provided over $40,000 in funding to more than 100 organizations proposed by our residential electricity and natural gas customers.”

Constellation customer Gail Seelig used her $250 Community Champions grant to help the Panther Power Robotics Team at The Academy of Our Lady of Peace in Providence, N.J., to purchase materials to develop an invention which assists area police and first responders to gauge water depth and open manholes in flood emergencies.

“Constellation’s grant helped our students build science and technology skills by supporting their invention in competition,” said Seelig. The Panther Power Robotics Team’s invention earned regional and state First Lego League (FLL) Robotics Championship awards and qualified to compete at FLL’s national tournament.

Cassata High School in Fort Worth, Texas, used its $500 Constellation Community Champions grant to send students in its environmental science course on a field trip to the Botanical Research Institute of Texas, where the students and their mentors learned about environmental career options and what they can do as individuals to care for the environment.

“This is a great opportunity for our students,” said Annie Chavez, director of development and marketing at Cassata High School. “Many of our students will be the first in their family to earn a high school diploma, and our goal is to provide mentorship and enrichment opportunities to help them achieve success. Because of the Community Champions grant, we were able to provide a field trip that helped them learn more about the environment, research and what they can do to make a difference.”
