Puget Sound Energy has donated more than $75,000 to nonprofits, including Kent Food Bank & Emergency Services, to help them fight hunger this year.

September is Hunger Action Month, and PSE is joining the fight to make sure no one goes hungry by donating funds to 73 organizations throughout its service area. The nonprofits span across 15 counties within our state from large distribution centers to hyper-local neighborhood food pantries.

The donations can efficiently provide an equivalent of 10 meals for every dollar received.

“Knowing that our support alone will serve approximately 750,000 meals to the hungry within our local communities lets me know we’re living out our company’s value to do what’s right,” said Andy Wappler, PSE vice president of customer operations and communications. “It’s all part of PSE and the PSE Foundation’s combined efforts to ‘provide and prepare’ for our communities.”

Over the past five years, the PSE Foundation committed $1 million and installed 18 high-capacity generators to various nonprofit organizations, including emergency shelters and food distribution centers. Now these critical first-responders can continue to provide care for those in need in the event of a disaster.
