Puget Sound Energy announcement.
Puget Sound Energy (PSE) and Puget Sound Energy Foundation are doing their part to help tackle hunger during Hunger Action Month this September. They are joining the fight to make sure no one goes hungry by donating funds to 49 organizations throughout its service area. The nonprofits span across 14 counties within the state from large distribution centers to hyper-local neighborhood food pantries.
The annual campaign in September is designed to raise awareness of hunger in the United States and to combat poverty, inequity, and injustice so hunger can end for good.
“Taking action in the communities we serve is living out our company’s value of doing what’s right,” said Kim Collier, vice president, chief human resources officer of PSE and president of PSE Foundation. “This is just another example of PSE and the PSE Foundation’s joint efforts to provide support in our communities.”
As part of Hunger Action Month, PSE employees also have the opportunity to help combat hunger, by making a monetary donation that will be matched dollar for dollar by the PSE Foundation. Employees are also participating in food drives at various locations with local beneficiaries and some are donating their time and talent by volunteering at Food Lifeline or their local food pantry with additional PSE Foundation matching funds.
The PSE Foundation is a nonprofit organization that operates independently of Puget Sound Energy.
