Exelon & ComEd pledge donations to support COVID-19 hit communities

Author : Pankaj Singh | Published Date : 2020-03-20 

Rising cases of COVID-19 worldwide has encouraged several organizations to make investments to support patients suffering from this novel disease. Recently, Exelon Corporation made a similar move when it announced that its arm, ComEd will pledge $250,000 to the Chicago Community Trust's COVID-19 Response Fund and United Way of Metro Chicago.  

The funding will support coronavirus affected communities and strengthen these organization’s efforts to offer vital services during the COVID-19 epidemic, cite sources.

Reportedly, the $250,000 contribution is a part of a $1.15 million donation funded by Exelon Corp. and its global subsidiaries that intend to help relief organizations to rebuild those communities that are adversely affected by the spread of COVID-19.

According to reliable sources, this donation follows ComEd's previous initiative to back customers that might be experiencing a financial strain owing to the economic slowdown caused by the effects of coronavirus. These initiatives involve waiving new, late-payment charges and suspending service disconnections for users.

Commenting on the move, Joe Dominguez, CEO, ComEd, said that lately, nonprofits are witnessing a decrease in the support from volunteer and disruption in fundraising due to the recently imposed safety guidelines.

The company believes that it is crucial for these not for profit organizations, that are aiding the most vulnerable population base, to have ample resources required to maintain their operations at the highest levels.

In fact, by backing these community-based organizations, ComEd believes that it would be able to bring a positive change across numerous affected communities.

For the record, apart from being the CEO of ComED, Joe Dominguez also serves on the United Way of Metro Chicago’s board. ComED has robust plans and contingencies to support business continuity across a wide range of disruptive events, which includes extensive preparedness in most public health crisis.
