JACKSON, Mich., November 28, 2017/3BL Media/ - Gifts of Energy from Consumers Energy offer a convenient solution for those who want to help others this Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday (#GivingTuesday) is a global day where people are encouraged to donate time, goods or their voice in order to assist those in need.

“Consumers Energy employees receive a lot of satisfaction from giving back to their communities by contributing both their time and our money to worthy causes,” said Brandon Hofmeister, Consumers Energy’s senior vice president of governmental, regulatory and public affairs. “We are happy to make it easy for anyone to experience the joy of giving through our offering of Gifts of Energy certificates.”
