At FPL, we’re working together with the communities we serve to make Florida an even better place to raise a family and do business. Our strongest connection to our communities – our employees and their families – donate thousands of volunteer hours each year to make a difference in their communities. In 2015 employee volunteers contributed more than 70,240 hours in their local communities through company-sponsored projects and their own personal volunteer time. Additionally, more than 200 community organizations have employees volunteering on their boards.
Power to Care Week
More than 1,500 volunteers participated in 33 community volunteer projects during FPL's eighth annual Power to Care Week Feb. 29 - March 5, 2016. Volunteers, including employees and their friends and families and executive leadership, rolled up their sleeves to help clean beaches, landscape gardens, spruce up parks, beautify schools and more - all to give back to the communities we serve. Over 6,000 volunteer hours were contributed to our communities.
Dollars for Doers
The Dollars for Doers program allows the company to recognize, support, and encourage the valuable contributions of our employees' volunteer efforts. The company's Dollars for Doers program rewards qualifying nonprofit organizations for the volunteer work of NextEra Energy employees when certain criteria are met. Thanks to employees logging their volunteer hours, the NextEra Energy Foundation distributed more than $147,000 worth of Dollars for Doers grants to 324 deserving nonprofit organizations across the country in 2015.
