PPL donates to area United Way agencies
The PPL Foundation will donate $300,000 to a dozen agencies providing COVID-19 relief efforts across central and eastern Pennsylvania, including the Harrisburg, Lancaster, Lehigh Valley, Poconos and Susquehanna Valley regions.
“We are committed to helping our neighbors through these difficult times,” said Ryan Hill, president of the PPL Foundation. “And we’re proud to partner with community agencies working on the front lines during this public health emergency to ensure that the most vulnerable among us have a safety net.”
PPL Foundation and its sister foundation in Kentucky – the LG&E and KU Foundation – have pledged more than $1 million combined in support to customers and communities served by PPL’s Pennsylvania and Kentucky utilities. This includes PPL Foundation’s $500,000 contribution in March to Operation HELP to support PPL Electric Utilities customers dealing with this crisis.
Agencies that will be receiving contributions include Pocono Mountains United Way, Schuylkill United Way and the United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley.
