Appalachian Power

Dear Friends,

Appalachian Power is committed to supporting the needs of our customers in the hundreds of communities we serve in Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. We understand the importance of ongoing funding for the programs and people who are working hard to make a difference in our communities.

In 2018, we supported 22 organizations with a total of $2.5 million from the American Electric Power Foundation. This included a $1 million gift to the Mountain Mission School, a century-old residential school in southwest Virginia for at-risk youth from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. The money went to the renovation of a boys’ residence hall damaged by a fire early in the year.

Sometimes our customers need assistance, and we are there to help. Last year, approximately $389,000 was given to people in need with corporate and customer donations through our Neighbor-to-Neighbor assistance program operated by Dollar Energy. We sponsored the 76th Annual Santa Train event, which delivers toys to children on a 110-mile railroad route through parts of our Virginia and Tennessee service territory. We also donated $50,000 to 15 food banks and feeding centers in Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.

In education, the AEP Foundation awarded a $450,000 grant to The Education Alliance to strengthen STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education for all elementary students in Lincoln and Logan counties in West Virginia.

We also participated in the 18th annual Read to Me Day in which Appalachian Power employees volunteer to read to students at more than 400 elementary schools throughout the company’s service territory all on one day. Since its inception, employees have read to 250,000 students and donated 6,000 books.

These highlights just touch the surface of how Appalachian Power strives to make positive, lasting impressions in our communities. We are proud to support the people and organizations that make our communities great places to live.

Sincerely,

Chris Beam
President and Chief Operating Officer
