Today is #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving during which individuals, families and communities come together to donate their time or money to a worthy cause. Giving back to the communities in which we live and work is an integral part of Duke Energy's commitment to our customers – on #GivingTuesday and every day of the year.

This year, our employees proudly answered the call of service. Through our recently concluded 2018 Power of Giving campaign, Duke Energy’s employees donated $5.3 million to over 3,700 different nonprofit organizations serving our communities. Combined with the Duke Energy Foundation matching gifts, that’s more than $10 million to support our communities. Now, that is powerful. Watch this video to see how our employees are inspired to give.

Our employees are also giving their time. During the holiday season, our employees are participating in dozens of company-organized and employee-led service projects across our operating footprint. So far this year, employees have served more than 100,000 volunteer hours through our Duke Energy In Action program.

It is an honor and a privilege to serve our communities. By harnessing our collective power for good, we will energize our communities and change lives.
