Washington Elementary School (Palm Beach County School District) will literally be “lit up” on Monday, March 3, 2014 as approximately 180 Florida Power & Light employees pitch in to help improve the school’s grounds and engage with students. The FPL employees will beautify the school through facility clean-ups, garden restoration, landscaping and painting, and will engage in reading to K-2 students. Superintendent Wayne Gent and Washington Elementary Principal Sandra Edwards will kick off the “Power to Care Day” at 8 a.m.
The week of March 3rd throughout Florida more than 1,300 FPL employees, with their family and friends, are giving back to the neighborhoods in which they live and work as part of FPL’s sixth annual “Power to Care Week.” As stated on the FPL website, FPL is committed to enhancing the quality of life in the communities where we work and live. Through community outreach, employees volunteer as guest speakers, donate their time and talent to support community efforts, and serve on various nonprofit boards.
