In the latest issue of our Energy Views Newsletter, we have an interview with Glen Thomas. As a former Chairman of the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission, Glen provides great insights about how the dramatic evolution in the energy industry is changing the role of regulators.
We are also happy to announce that this past April HomeServe launched the HomeServe Cares Foundation which brings together existing and new Corporate Social Responsibility programs under one umbrella. This four-pillar program encompasses pro-bono repairs for disadvantaged citizens, grant funding for worthy community projects, a veterans hiring initiative and employee giving and volunteerism. In June we distributed two grants that will help improve the lives of physically and developmentally challenged individuals, and we are now soliciting applications for projects focused on home repairs that benefit low-income seniors and veterans.
Our employees have expressed the desire to be involved in charitable giving and community projects, so in addition to providing invaluable assistance to people and communities in need, our corporate social responsibility activities also serve as a platform for meaningful employee engagement.
I hope you find this edition informative and beneficial.
John Kitzie, CEO
