Edison International Employees Lend A Helping Hand 

 Guest Blog Post by Melissa Amador, Edison International

Volunteers from Edison International rolled up their sleeves to help build a new home in partnership with a Long Beach family! On Saturday, July 16, twenty-five employees from the company put their energy into construction by working side-by-side installing the trusses of the roof for nearly 8 hours and successfully completed the job injury-free. Employees marveled at how this volunteer project allowed them to give back to the community in a meaningful way and served as a valuable reminder of the power of teamwork. 

This is not Edison International's first volunteer partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Greater L.A.’s Long Beach Neighborhood Revitalization program. Edison is committed to five “build” days on this program and have 3 more volunteer days left this year. When the volunteer days are finally complete, a total of 125 employees will have assisted in constructing a new home for Enrique and Sonia Lopez and family. This partnership is part of Edison International's 125 Days of Service commemorating the company's 125th anniversary. Throughout the year, employees will be donating their time and skills on numerous volunteer projects where they live and work. 

Investing in local communities is important and Edison International is pleased to partner with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles to help make homeownership possible for hardworking, low-income families and individuals.
