Through our Power to Care volunteer program, NextEra Energy employees and their families volunteer thousands of hours each year and make a difference in our communities. In 2016, employee volunteers contributed more than 85,000 hours through dozens of company-sponsored events, projects and personal volunteer time.
In conjunction with Feeding Children Everywhere, a nonprofit organization, employees from FPL’s St. Lucie Nuclear Energy Center, assembled healthy meals for hungry children. In addition, NextEra Energy employees at locations in Miami and Palm Beach County partnered with the nonprofit to package more than 240,000 meals. Feeding Children Everywhere distributes the meals to local agencies including food pantries and soup kitchens.
