On and Off the Ice with Three Mile Island

 

Three Mile Island is known to have a legacy. But, what if you were to rethink that legacy. The power plant that generates electricity for 800,000 homes every second of the day also generates smiles and a sense of community at the same rate.

Two employees at TMI, Randy Fenner and Tom Fitting, have been helping coach the Hershey Heroes; a hockey team for children with special needs. In December, TMI donated funds to help pay for equipment and ice time. However, the true payment comes from Fenner and Fitting's time, blood, sweat, and tears with these kids on the ice and making them smile.

"Seeing their face light up when they hit the ice, that is all that matters," said Fenner. The two men do not seek attention for their effort. However, parents of the boys and those who have been watching this program blossom have taken notice of Fenner and Fitting's dedication.

Recently, TMI received a thank you letter from the Director of Hershey Heroes Special Hockey, Michael Miller. 

"Dear Three Mile Island Team,

On behalf of the Hershey Heroes Special Hockey club, I'd like to

thank you for your generous donation. The funds you provided

will help pay for ice time, provide uniforms and help secure

equipment throughout the season.

Randy Fenner and Tom Fitting, both Exelon employees, have been instrumental in the success of our program. We owe them a debt of gratitude as well for their efforts both on and off the ice. Thank you again for your generosity. Please enjoy the picture of our Heroes!"

Fenner and Fitting are just one of 675 current employees who spend every day re-writing the legacy of TMI; spending more than 800 hours in the community where it matters most. So, the next time you re-charge your phone or flip on a light switch, just know your electricity is generated by hundreds of your closest neighbors with a big heart.
