• Volunteer Work

    Our employees go above and beyond each year to donate their time to various causes through thousands of hours of volunteer work. 


    Through our Power to Care volunteer program, NextEra Energy employees and their families volunteer thousands of hours each year and make a difference in our communities. In 2018, employee volunteers contributed 85,000 hours through dozens of company-sponsored events, projects and personal volunteer time.

    During Power to Care Week in 2018, some of the impacts made include: 

    • More than 10,000 pounds of tomatoes were gleaned with CROS Ministries to be distributed by the Palm Beach County Food Bank.
    • One hundred "We Care" packages were assembled and sent to U.S. soldiers deployed overseas by Forgotten Soldiers Outreach.
    • Seven homes were improved for neighbors in need in Florida City and Little Havana in Miami-Dade County and through partnerships with Habitat for Humanity in Manatee, Palm Beach and Volusia counties.
    • One thousand meals were packed for the Children's Hunger Project in Brevard County, ensuring students have meals over the weekend. An additional 5,400 meals packed for the backpack program with the Houston Food Bank.
    • Facility improvements were made, including painting and landscaping at Palatka Environmental Education Center.
    • More than 1,700  pounds of trash and debris were collected at beaches in South Florida.


     FPL Employees at Race for the Cure

    Race for the Cure

    Each year, hundreds of FPL employees support the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Miami and West Palm Beach. The employees pictured here, many of whom are breast cancer survivors, are also members of the SOS dragon boat team, based in Jupiter, Florida. In this case, SOS stands for Save our Sisters and the women became involved because the team's focus is on living, rather than on the disease. SOS members also volunteer at breast cancer support groups, conferences and hospital events and act as resources for physician and treatment information. The group brought their SOS paddles with them to the Race for the Cure in West Palm Beach.
