Kentucky Power is committed to supporting the 20 counties we serve in ways that go beyond providing safe and reliable electricity. We take our role as a good corporate citizen seriously. Kentucky Power supports the people and programs that are striving to make our region a better place to live, work and play.
In 2020, Kentucky Power contributed approximately $63,000 to community organizations. Kentucky Power also contributed nearly $860,000 to communities in our service territory for economic development projects. In addition, the American Electric Power Foundation provided over $700,000 in grants to nonprofits in the area.
Significant portions of Kentucky Power's contributions were COVID-19 related including a contribution to Team Kentucky, a fund created by Kentucky's Governor to help people through the economic challenges of the pandemic. We were able to assist with food banks, housing improvements, schools, youth organizations, volunteer fire departments and organizations promoting the arts.
Kentucky Power's culture is rooted in community involvement. Whether it is supporting the arts, education and area non-profit organizations or investing in economic development projects, Kentucky Power employees believe it is important to invest time and money toward making a difference in our communities. Employees spend numerous hours volunteering their time and talents to our schools, non-profit boards, and other organizations. They volunteer at fairs and festivals and are firmly committed to making a difference.
On behalf of Kentucky Power, I thank you for the opportunity to serve eastern Kentucky. I continue to pledge our commitment to customers and the communities we serve.
