At FPL, we strongly believe in the importance of being a good corporate citizen in the communities we serve, and our employees are our strongest connection to our communities. FPL employees and their families donate thousands of volunteer hours each year to make a difference in their communities. In 2013 employee volunteers contributed more than 48,800 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 1,300 volunteers participated in 29 community volunteer projects in 13 Florida counties during FPL's sixth annual Power to Care Week March 3-8, 2014. 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 in an effort to give back to the communities we serve. Over 5,300 volunteer hours were contributed to our communities throughout Florida.
Dollars for Doers
The FPL 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 $110,000 worth of Dollars for Doers grants to 235 deserving nonprofit organizations across the country in 2013.
