Kentucky Utilities Company and Louisville Gas and Electric Company employees gave back to the communities where they live and work on "Giving Tuesday."
For the sixth year in a row, employee pledges to 27 nonprofit organizations across Kentucky totaled more than $1 million. With additional contributions from the LG&E and KU Foundation, the companies’ overall total reached $1.6 million. It's part of utilities’ annual charitable giving campaign, called 'Power of One.'
More than 70 percent of KU and LG&E employees participate in the Power of One. The campaign has raised $12 million since 2005.
