DP&L Lighting the Way

Dayton Power & Light Helps Foodbank Celebrate 40 Years

DPL at Hope

Dayton Power & Light is a long standing partner with The Foodbank, supporting our efforts as we fight hunger throughout the Miami Valley.  With corporate sponsorship and employee involvement in WDTN’s Food for Friends campaign, Dayton Power & Light works hard to help families in need. DP&L employees roll up their sleeves each year collecting food items and donating cash to the Food for Friends campaign, which makes a difference for food pantries around DP&L’s 24-county service territory.

To support the campaign, DP&L locations hold chili cook-offs and bake and book sales, all funds raised go directly to the Foodbank to help maximize our purchasing power. But it doesn’t end there, DP&L employees donate to DP&L’s Energy-to-Go campaign, which works alongside The Foodbank to ensure children at risk are have a nutritious meal and snack over the weekend in their Good-to-Go backpacks. When children open those backpacks, they receive an inspiring handwritten note from a DP&L employee encouraging the child to achieve in class or strive to do their best – letting the child know that someone cares.

The DP&L Foundation has also supported The Foodbank’s efforts through their grants program, helping us acquire much-needed equipment including a walk-in freezer and cooler unit and two new forklifts to manage the inventory and distribute food supplies easier and faster.

DP&L employees volunteer at The Foodbank each year on Earth Day and with the mobile pantries by distributing  energy efficient CFL light bulbs to help low income residents reduce their energy costs.

Thank you, Dayton Power & Light and DP&L employees, for your unrivaled support of The Foodbank and for helping us power through 40 years of service! We look forward to celebrating 40 more with you by our side!
