The donations are part of the company’s “We Care Rebuild Project,” which has designated $5 million to social justice and community rebuilding efforts across its 16-state footprint.

“Dominion Energy is pleased to partner with these important community organizations, and we applaud and support the vital work that they conduct every day, said Jim Eck, vice president and general manager, Ohio & West Virginia Distribution. “This is an investment in rebuilding our communities and bringing a more just society, especially during this pivotal moment in our nation’s history.”
