Dominion Energy completes service project to brighten a school entrance


Dominion Energy is taking its community service projects outdoors to change the environment. 

The company has launched a variety of environmental stewardship programs and on Thursday, a group from its legal department worked to complete a beautification project in Doddridge County. 

The group planted flowers and changed the landscape of the front entrance of Project A.C.E, an early learning and adult learning resource center. 

The building welcomes its 3 and 4 year old preschool next week. 

“It wasn’t the most inviting and bright atmosphere, so we were contacted about a way to brighten this area up and plant some flowers, really just make it more welcoming as children walk through the doors into their classroom,” said Samantha Norris with Dominion Energy. 

Dominion Energy employees logged more than 3,500 community service hours in 2017 and are on track to surpass that in 2018.

Dominion Energy said it plans to contribute more than $30 million in 2018 to community causes throughout its 19 state footprint and beyond.
