Power To CARE
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 2020, employee volunteers contributed 32,800 hours through dozens of company-sponsored events, projects and personal volunteer time.
During Power to Care Week in 2020, some of the impacts made include:
- More than 4,000 pounds of peppers were gleaned with CROS Ministries to be distributed by the Palm Beach County Food Bank. Sorted through more than 13,000 lbs. of food, which is equivalent to 1,133 meals, in Houston.
- Completed facility improvements at Florence De George Boys & Girls Club in West Palm Beach, ABF Learning Center in Miami, and Palmetto Youth Center in Palmetto, including murals and landscaping.
- Facility improvements were made, including painting and landscaping at Palatka Environmental Education Center.
- Installed smoke detectors in over 100 homes in Miami and Indiantown.
- One hundred "We Care" packages were assembled and sent to U.S. soldiers deployed overseas by Forgotten Soldiers Outreach.
- Packed meals for the backpack program with the Houston Food Bank.
- Planted 200 Cypress trees at Jonathan Dickinson State Park.
