Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin recently received a check for $10,000 thanks to the safety efforts of We Energies' employees.

Jewel Currie, director – transportation, health and safety at We Energies, and Patti McNew, foundation administrator at We Energies, presented Lyn Hildenbrand, fund development manager – Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin, with the check on Nov. 10. The We Energies Foundation donation was determined by our employees through the third-quarter Safety Charity Challenge.

“Feeding America provides five meals for every one dollar donated to the food bank,” said Hildenbrand. “This donation will help provide 50,000 meals to hungry men, women and children.”

The donation will be shared with food banks and hunger-relief programs throughout our service area.

Each year, one out of six Americans goes hungry; more than 573,000 of whom reside in the state of Wisconsin. Learn more about the nation’s leading hunger-relief charity at feedingamerica.org.
