BEAVER -- FirstEnergy Corp. has donated $10,000 to a local charity that provides food and home-repair services for military veterans and needy families.

Faith Restorations Inc., a Beaver-based charity, consists of volunteers who engage in home restoration and repair on homes owned by active-duty military members or veterans. The agency also provides a food pantry for needy families, as well as spiritual support for community members.

FirstEnergy officials said in a news release that the company recently donated $10,000 unsolicited to the company as part of its Christmas in July campaign. As part of that giving campaign, FirstEnergy distributed 12 monetary gifts to agencies within its service areas.

The company, which owns and operates the Beaver Valley Nuclear Power Station and the Bruce Mansfield Power Plant, usually donates to a local agency around Christmas, as well.

In a news release, FirstEnergy Foundation President Dee Lowery said the decision was made to make monetary donations in the summertime, to better support the good work these organizations do year round in our service areas.

Those chosen were selected by FirstEnergy employees, who identified organizations in their geographic location that do extraordinary work to make our communities a better place to live and work, Lowery said. Were very pleased to provide these surprise grants to support ongoing investment in the quality of life in our service areas.

The FirstEnergy Foundation annually provides support to nonprofit, tax-exempt health and human service agencies, educational organizations, arts and cultural programs, and civic groups.
