JEA employees are our strongest connection to the communities we service and are committed to making a difference through volunteerism.
Our employees volunteer throughout the year with various organizations to help improve the quality of life for our customers. JEA employees volunteer thousands of hours to help build homes, clean-up along the river, serve meals to those in need, even read stories to children.
Spotlighting Our Employee Volunteers
As JEA’s IT Compliance Manager, Kendra spends a lot of time in front of a computer ensuring that JEA complies with federal regulatory standards.
And that’s one of the reasons she enjoys getting away from her desk to volunteer at places like Feeding Northeast FL. “I find it kind of amazing how the community comes together at this food bank,” said Kendra, who’s worked at JEA six years. “Grocery stores and farmers donate food and the community sorts and organizes it for people in need.”
Kendra has also spent time as a JEA Ambassador, teaching financial responsibility to high school students through Junior Achievement. “It was a flashback to high school. It reminded me what it was like to be a teenager and the skills needed after high school,” she said.
In the end, Kendra says she appreciates that JEA gives her eight hours a year to volunteer in the community. As she put it, “Stepping away from my day to day to help in the community helps me just as much as the community.”
