Employees of Alabama Power’s Greenville operation celebrated a service milestone during a program Sept. 26.

A yearlong goal of 5,000 hours of community service was set for Alabama Power’s Southern Division, which covers an area stretching from Clanton to Georgiana. That was exceeded in mid-September.

Alabama Power employees from Greenville, Georgiana and Ft. Deposit volunteered more than 570 hours, as well as financial resources, to assist with events such as the Greenville Area Chamber of Commerce’s bookbag giveaway, the Healthy Woman “Color Me for Down Syndrome” 5K run, Butler County Relay for Life, Calico Fort, Read Across America and the Butler County Special Olympics.

“Service to our communities is important to Alabama Power,” said Rod Cater, APC Greenville Business Office Manager. “While we are proud to be part of achieving such a milestone, the real value is knowing that every hour and every contribution has helped someone or some organization in need.”

The Alabama Power Service Organization is focused on helping nonprofit groups and charitable projects that promote the core values of Alabama Power’s charitable giving efforts.
