FPL Cares Day Includes SJHP Project

Volunteers from Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) lent a helping hand to the St. Johns Housing Partnership as part of the Power to Care program, which aims to support local communities across the state.

During a week of service projects, more than 20 FPL volunteers dedicated their time to giving back to their community.

Their efforts focused on providing some much-needed TLC to a St. Augustine senior resident named Dorothy, who is a low-income recipient of the St. Johns Housing Partnership. The volunteers spent the morning painting the exterior of Dorothy’s home and also assisted with landscaping efforts.

The St. Johns Housing Partnership, committed to promoting safe, decent, and affordable housing in North Florida, was grateful for the support provided by the FPL volunteers. The senior resident received flooring and kitchen upgrades from the SJHP, which creates bridges between the public and private sectors to help revitalize neglected homes and neighborhoods.

Reflecting on the impact of the project, one volunteer shared, “It couldn’t happen to a better person. She is a first lady, she has raised her sons up to be men of God, and blessings should always come to people that bless others.”

Celebrating its 16th anniversary, the Power to Care program exemplifies FPL’s dedication to empowering communities and making Florida an even better place to live, work, and raise a family.
