DELTA, PA. (Dec. 12, 2018) — Just in time for the holidays, Exelon Generation's Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station is donating $77,500 to three Delta non-profits. Site Vice President Pat Navin presented checks to Mason-Dixon Community Services, the Delta Senior Center and the Delta-Cardiff Volunteer Fire Company this week. Money donated was raised by Peach Bottom employees to help the organizations, which provide vital services to residents and families in Southern York County.
"Supporting local nonprofit organizations is very important, especially during the holiday season," said Navin. "These funds will help provide emergency services to area residents and support area seniors and families in need. "Throughout the year, we support organizations that focus on education, environment, health and human services, arts and culture and community and neighborhood development."
Funds donated to Mason-Dixon Community Services and the Delta Senior Center were raised during the station's annual employee silent auction, which was the most successful to date, raising a total of $32,500.
"We are thrilled to receive this contribution from Peach Bottom," said Mason-Dixon Community Services Executive Director Susan Bowen. "The funds will be used toward heating and energy assistance this winter, youth programming and camp funding this summer. They will also help cover operational expenses, make delivery of our programs more efficient and will help us improve existing and develop new programs to serve the low-income population of our local community,"
The station also donated $45,000 to Delta-Cardiff Volunteer Fire Company from funds raised during the site's annual golf outing. Other community organizations received significant funding from this year's tournament, including the Mason-Dixon Business Association, Delta Borough Council, Penn State York STEM Workshops, York County Dollars for Scholars and Junior Achievement of South Central Pennsylvania.
