ALLENTOWN, Pa., Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- PPL Corporation, its employees and its retirees joined forces to raise $4 million during the company's annual United Way campaign.

PPL employees volunteer during the United Way Day of Caring in the Lehigh Valley held on June 21, 2017. In addition to financial support, hundreds of PPL employees give the gift of time by volunteering throughout the company’s Pennsylvania service territory during United Way’s Day of Caring events.

The funds will support ongoing efforts throughout central and eastern Pennsylvania to help children learn, grow and succeed; to create more opportunities for those less fortunate; to improve the quality of life for seniors; to provide emergency services to victims of violence and natural disasters; and to battle hunger in our communities.  

The company's annual United Way campaign included more than $1.7 million in contributions from employees and retirees.

"I am so proud and thankful for the giving spirit our employees and retirees demonstrate year after year," said William H. Spence, PPL chairman, president and Chief Executive Officer and co-chair of the United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley's 100th year anniversary campaign. "Their gifts support the valuable work that local United Way chapters and nonprofit agencies perform. Their generosity helps to encourage, inspire and make a difference in people's lives."

In addition to employee and retiree contributions to this year's campaign in Pennsylvania, the PPL Foundation provided more than $2.2 million in matching funds and grants to the United Way. This included a dollar-for-dollar match of all employee and retiree giving.

Since 2009, the company's United Way campaigns have raised more than $20 million through employee and retiree donations, event fundraisers and support from the PPL Foundation.
