AEP offers grants to support employee volunteers in making a difference

by on September 7, 2012

America celebrates the spirit of volunteerism on Make a Difference Day, Saturday, Oct. 27. The 22nd annual “national day of doing good” is sponsored by USA WEEKEND Magazine in partnership with Points of Light/HandsOn Network.

AEP again is making a difference through a mini-grant program that encourages employees around the System to become involved in community projects in their locales.

Last year, the company awarded a dozen grants that supported projects led by active or retired employees from six AEP operating companies in seven states.

AEP’s Make a Difference Day grants range up to $300 to help fund local projects that involve at least five AEP active or retired employees in partnership with a school or nonprofit organization.

Projects can be as simple as helping a family in need or may be a coordinated effort serving an entire community.

To learn more about national Make a Difference Day, including getting started, entering your project online, an idea generator, examples of past projects, and past award winners, visit makeadifferenceday.com.

Application deadline for mini-grants is Sept. 27, 2012.
