The FirstEnergy Foundation surprised deserving organizations across the company's service area with grants totaling $100,000 as part of its annual holiday "Gifts of the Season" campaign. Since its inception in 2016, the campaign has awarded nearly $400,000 to organizations that work to strengthen communities.

"We really enjoy surprising groups with these donations around the holidays, when the need for their services is so critical," said Lorna Wisham, vice president of corporate affairs and community involvement for FirstEnergy. "The recipients are chosen by FirstEnergy External Affairs employees, and the grants are dedicated to improving the quality of life in the areas where our employees and customers live and work."
