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
Deena is proud of her nickname.
“Everybody out here knows me as ‘the bake sale lady,’” she said, laughing.
Deena works as a weigh clerk at JEA’s Northside Generating Station in Byproduct Services. It’s her job to ship generation byproducts to buyers.
For the last three years, Deena has organized a bake sale at the plant to raise money for Community Health Charities. “We made over $3,000 in bake sales last year,” she said proudly. “There are a handful of amazing ladies who bake out here. And there are lots of hungry men who love to buy what they bake.”
Deena also coordinated the JEA Employee Talent Show and sold concessions at the employee basketball and flag football games, all fundraisers for JEA’s Community Health Charities campaign.
“I feel really happy when I volunteer,” Deena said. “Plus I get to meet lots of employees that I’d never get to meet otherwise. To me, volunteering is really win-win.”
