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
Volunteering in the community gives some JEA employees an opportunity to connect with customers that they wouldn’t otherwise experience.
Take Margaret, a manager in JEA’s electric system. She spends the bulk of her time working far from customers deep inside JEA’s generating stations, contributing to electric production. Margaret has worked at JEA over two decades and loves her job and the company.
“When I volunteer, I really enjoy helping to give the community and our customers the opportunity to see us as the real people we are … that we do have compassion and we do care,” Margaret said.
Margaret likes to spend her volunteer time painting or laying sod at HabiJax homes, and helping at the Salvation Army Christmas Toy giveaway. She was also the chairperson of JEA’s Community Health Charities Employee Giving Campaign and organized JEA’s Community Health Charities Basketball tournament, which holds a special place in her heart.
“I’m real competitive,” Margaret said, laughing. “And it was important for me to make more money with that basketball tournament than anyone ever. And we did!”
