On January 13, 2017, Duke Energy Florida, through its foundation, announced a $1 million gift to United Way Suncoast for the Campbell Park community and its surrounding neighborhoods in St. Petersburg, Fla. Since 2011, United Way Suncoast has operated a neighborhood program initiative in Campbell Park Elementary School with a focus on student educational support, parent engagement and adult financial stability. Last year, United Way Suncoast announced plans to expanded its initiative to include a dedicated community resource center for the community that would provide access to resources and opportunities to empower individuals and families to work toward long-term stability. The Resource Center is housed in the Cross and Anvil Human Services Center, (operated by Mt. Zion African Methodist Episcopal Church), and services are offered in partnership with Pinellas County Urban League and other non profit partners. The Duke Energy Florida’s commitment will enable United Way Suncoast to rapidly expand and increase capacity at the resource center. Services will include job coaching, soft skills training, resume writing and job referrals. In addition, financial planning and coaching, legal advice and other programs will be offered. “Duke Energy is committed to working with United Way Suncoast, the Campbell Park community and other partner agencies to empower the neighborhood and further its successes,” said Harry Sideris, president, Duke Energy Florida. “The support for this community is inspiring and we are proud to be a part of the further positive change it will experience in the coming months.” “Duke Energy’s generosity and commitment to the Campbell Park neighborhood is as incredible as the tremendous potential that exists in the residents of this community,” said Suzanne McCormick, president and CEO of United Way Suncoast. “We are very excited for the opportunities this gift brings and proud to be working with so many wonderful business and nonprofit partners."READ MORE
