Energy Northwest employees give back to Tri-Cities

Feature Story

​​​​Employees with Energy Northwest have been busy this spring serving the community throughout the Tri-Cities region in southeastern Washington.

In April, employees set a record for blood donations during an on-site blood drive through the American Red Cross. Thirty-five employees participated, including 10 first-time donors, the highest number since 2020. EN hosts blood drives on-site at Columbia Generating Station at least once per quarter. 

For Earth Day, employees gave back to the community through service activities. Members of EN’s Young Generation in Nuclear (ENYGN) group conducted a park cleanup, collecting garbage at a park in Kennewick, Washington, that is popular with families. 

Employees also celebrated Earth Day by performing trail maintenance in collaboration with the Richland, Washington, nonprofit Friends of Badger Mountain. The group spent several hours clearing weeds and spreading gravel to improve trail surfaces. ​​ 


The month of charitable activity wrapped up with Corporate Governance teammates spending time sorting food for the Second Harvest food bank in Pasco, Washington. The team sorted more than 5,774 pounds of pears – enough for 4,811 meals. ​​

The pear sorting activity was organized through EN’s Proud to Power, Proud to Serve program. The program allows team members to use up to 10 hours of work time per year to serve with agency-approved local charities. Other volunteer activities are conducted on personal time.
