Power Plant Generates Volunteer Energy

Carlsbad CA— Employees from NRG’s Encina Power Plant took a break from delivering energy to customers, and instead contributed energy to the Carlsbad community through volunteer projects for the company’s annual Global Giving Day.

Crews were sent to two local nonprofits – the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad and La Posada de Guadalupe. At the Boys & Girls Club’s Village Clubhouse, NRG employees spruced up the landscaping, cleaned the gym floor, and washed the Club vans.

“It was absolutely wonderful having those smiling faces helping to make our Clubhouse a better place,” said Club Director Andy Purviance. “As a nonprofit, we rely on the generosity of volunteers to take care of the ‘extra’ touches, and we are thankful to the NRG volunteers who gave their time.”

NRG has been a steadfast supporter of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad for many years now, not only through their Global Giving Day but also through financial donations and sponsorship support of fundraising events.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad has played an integral role in the Carlsbad community since 1952, providing programs and services to thousands of young people. Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad invites you to tour their Clubhouse, and see how lives are changed on a daily basis. The organization is 100% funded by local donors.
