A time for giving

In December, many families gather to spend quality time with each other. One Dominion Energy family comes together not only during the holidays, but year-round. Don Cline, his daughters, and his son are volunteer firefighters who often respond to the same emergencies in their small Pennsylvania community.


Emergency response training is coming in handy in Maryland as well. When Lewis Reynolds blacked out at the Cove Point LNG facility due to an underlying heart condition, his coworkers were able to resuscitate him thanks to their thorough safety training.


And in the wake of a brutal hurricane season, our legal team has been providing pro bono support to hurricane victims. Teirra Everette, who spearheaded the project, said, “Our line crews were traveling to assist with restoration, and the Hola! ERG was collecting goods to donate. I started asking, ‘What can we as attorneys do?’”


Carlos Brown, vice president and general counsel, was happy to support the initiative. Check out our profile of Carlos to learn more about his passion for community engagement, his career path, and how he always puts family first.


Kimberly Fields also is positively impacting her community. Read about why she started a young adult ministry at her church and a campaign called #encourageyourself365.


Eric Nelson, chair of the company’s PRIDE Employee Resource Group, has been busy outside of work as well. He has mastered karate, blues dancing and jewelry making in his spare time.


Finally, in honor of the holiday season, check out some classic company commercials from winters past.
