Vectren Corporation, Evansville, Indiana, committed $50,000 in financial aid to assist in rehabilitation efforts in the hurricane-devastated Southern United States. The Indiana- headquartered energy company has agreed to match its employee donations, 1800-strong, up to an additional $25,000.
"This is a national tragedy, and each of us must do our part to help. We've already sent crews to help with power restoration, but we know much more help is needed," Vectren Chairman, President and CEO Niel C. Ellerbrook said. "The impacted region is counting on good corporate citizens and compassionate individuals throughout the country to help them stabilize the region and begin the rebuilding process. We felt it was our civic duty to answer that call for help."
