Employees, Community Members Give Back For Xcel Energy’s Day Of Service

Nearly 2,500 volunteers from Xcel Energy and the communities it serves took action to support nonprofit organizations during the company’s 13th annual Day of Service earlier this month.

The volunteers dedicated over 7,200 volunteer hours to support over 100 organizations with projects that ranged from packing meals and repairing homes for families to cleaning up nature trails and planting trees. Volunteer efforts generated $230,000 in economic impact across communities in many of the states the company serves, including Colorado, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Texas and Wisconsin.

“Volunteering is in our DNA; it allows us to change lives, deepen our roots in the community and address the things that matter most to our families, friends and neighbors,” said Bob Frenzel, chairman, president and CEO of Xcel Energy, who took part in the event by joining Minnesota nonprofit Hearts & Hammers in landscaping and painting the home of a local veteran. “It was inspiring to see our employees come together with community members and support their local nonprofits.”
