SOURCE: Avista Utilities

DESCRIPTION:

Each year Avista makes more than $1 million in donations to non-profit organizations in the communities we serve.  In 2012, that giving totaled more than $1.6 million, up from $1.4 million in 2011.

And, our employees are generous with their time and talents as well. Last year, Avista employees gave nearly 50,000 hours of volunteer service to community organizations in their hometowns.
 
One of the largest volunteer efforts in 2012 was Avista’s participation in the Salvation Army’s annual “Backpack for Kids” program. Partnering alongside community volunteers, more than 120 employees staffed the 10-hour day, giving away more than 3,700 backpacks stuffed with school supplies, serving more than 1,500 families.
