Youth in Community Fund
Each year, Essex Power Corporation makes a $40,000 donation through its Youth in Community Fund, which is evenly distributed amongst its shareholders; the Town of Amherstburg, the Town of LaSalle, the Municipality of Leamington and the Town of Tecumseh. The fund is used to advance local, youth-related investments. To date, Essex Power has funded a total of $320,000 youth driven initiatives in the communities it serves.
The fund continues to provide support for new and ongoing initiatives in each of the four shareholder communities. Youth initiatives include recreational swimming series, pancake breakfasts with Santa, recreational skating series, skateboarding competitions, Earth Day celebrations, children’s summer concert series, Canada Day celebrations, Mayor’s Youth Advisory Committee, and mentorship programs such as Essex EmPOWERment Girls Group, to name a few.
