On the occasion of the Martin Luther King holiday, the only federal holiday designated as a day of service, Siemens Energy is pleased to announce the winning charitable organizations of the company’s recently launched Positive Energy campaign. “On this national day of service, it’s important to recognize the value of serving in the places where we live and work,” said Steve Conner, president of Siemens Energy, Inc. “These organizations demonstrate service to their respective communities today and every day.”
Siemens Energy celebrated its recent spinoff from Siemens AG with a campaign to spread positive energy in the U.S. through donations to its employees’ favorite charities totaling $250,000 across 20 states. The nominated charities each created a one-minute video explaining their organization’s mission and how they would use a donation.
As a newly independent company, Siemens Energy’s mission is to support its customers in transitioning to a more sustainable energy system based on the company’s innovative technologies and ability to turn ideas into reality. In support of this mission, the Positive Energy Campaign was aimed at providing donations to local charities that make a clear impact on their respective communities, especially in a year when the COVID-19 pandemic has created an increase in basic human needs across society.
