May is Duke Energy in Action volunteer month. In 2018, Duke Energy Florida introduced its “31x31: Championing 62 Causes in May” program. Our employees hosted 62 community employee engagement activities during the 31 days in the month of May. Employees participated in a wide variety of events while partnering with local non-profit or community organizations.
These are just a few of the numbers that showcase the impact of Duke Energy In Action Month. This year, we had a record-breaking month, with a 92% increase in the number of volunteers and a 95% increase in the number of hours logged. An annual initiative during the month of May, Duke Energy In Action Month mobilizes employees across our service footprint to volunteer their time in the communities we serve.
