Constellation today named 74 new grant recipients through its Community Champions program, donating more than $35,000 to community organizations focused on education, youth development and environmental projects. Constellation’s Community Champions program allows the company’s residential electricity and natural gas supply customers to nominate a local project or cause for grant funding. The next deadline for grant submissions is May 15, 2017.

“Constellation is pleased to support our customers’ dedication to giving back to their communities,” said Kevin Klages, senior vice president, mass markets for Constellation. “Since the program’s inception in 2013, Constellation’s Community Champions Program has awarded over $315,000 in funding to more than 660 projects that have made significant educational and environmental impacts in the communities we serve.”

For Constellation customer Amy Yates, the $500 Community Champions grant helps to build an outdoor classroom for Little Mill Middle School in Forsyth County, Georgia.

“We are building raised gardens for vegetables, benches, and a covered area for classes to meet,” said Yates. “Thank you Constellation for helping us further our goals for our deserving students!”

Helen Ponce’s $500 Community Champions award went to the Haven House Art Project, a healing art programs for women at the Haven House domestic abuse shelter in Georgia. “My class teaches the women at this shelter that art can create a space to heal. The funds from this grant will help me to keep giving the healing gift of art. Thank you!”
