Employees from Georgia Power’s Plant Scherer - Citizens of Georgia Power chapter are making a difference in the community during the COVID-19 pandemic. While employees have been unable to complete indoor, hands-on volunteer projects during this time, they found a way to support their community by stuffing and delivering “Bags of Hope” for men and women to Salvation Army’s Homeless Shelter in Macon.

The bags were stuffed with toiletry items and notes of encouragement for those staying at the shelter.

Citizens of Georgia Power is the employee volunteer arm of Georgia Power Company. With 42 chapters statewide and more than 3,400 members, consisting of employees and their spouses, volunteers contributed more than 143,000 hours equal to $3.5 million in 2019.
