AEP Volunteers Will Make a Difference Oct. 28

America celebrates the spirit of volunteerism this year on Make a Difference Day, Saturday, Oct. 28. The 26th annual “national day of doing good” is sponsored by TEGNA in partnership with Points of Light and is the largest national day of community service.

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

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 on Oct. 28 as part of the nationwide event.

Each year, around two dozen local projects coordinated by AEP employees are funded through AEP’s Make a Difference Day grant program.

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

Application deadline for mini-grants is Sept. 28, 2017 (the fourth Thursday in September).
