APR Energy® and the John and Suzanne Campion Foundation donated a total of $15,000 to the Sulzbacher Center and the Children’s Home Society just in time for the holidays. Both nonprofits experience upticks in people needing help during the holiday months.
The Children’s Home Society is a child welfare organization that provides counseling and health services to kids and teens, connects foster parents to children in need and runs food pantries, among other things. The Sulzbacher Center is Northeast Florida’s largest provider of comprehensive services for homeless men, women and children, according to the group’s website.
Children’s Home Society received $5,000 to buy Christmas gifts for local children in need, while the Sulzbacher Center received $10,000 to help the shelter pay for toy-filled stockings and $100 gift cards for 100 homeless students.
“APR Energy delivers more than just reliable power to communities. We invest in our neighborhoods by empowering those we serve with resources that help set them up for more opportunity and success,” said Charles Ferry, president and chief operating officer of APR Energy. “We have supported the Children’s Home Society of Florida and Sulzbacher Center for many years because we believe in the great work they are doing here in Jacksonville, the community that APR Energy has called home since its inception nearly two decades ago.”
