Southern California Edison (SCE), its customers and SCE’s parent company, Edison International, are helping Superstorm Sandy victims with three powerful philanthropy initiatives with funds from shareholders, not SCE customers:
Last week, SCE sent 126 line workers and support crews to New York and New Jersey to help repair Sandy’s devastation that left millions of Consolidated Edison customers without power.
“We are proud of our employees’ and customers’ eagerness to help,” said Janet Clayton, Edison International senior vice president, Corporate Communications, and chair of Edison International's Corporate Philanthropy Committee. “We can’t all do the hard work of climbing poles and stringing wires, but everyone can take a few moments to let the people on the East Coast know that we’re thinking of them, and to help in a meaningful way.”
