In December 2013, you may remember reading an article on this blog in which we introduced the Just Energy Foundation. The Just Energy Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to giving back to the communities Just Energy serves in Canada and the United States. The Foundation focuses on enhancing the lives of local residents in need, and through the Foundation, Just Energy is positively impacting the lives of many. The Foundation’s initiatives build stronger, healthier and more supportive communities.
The Just Energy Foundation is an independent entity that consolidates all of Just Energy Group’s charitable contributions. Since the Foundation’s December 2013 launch, several organizations and programs have reached out for support, including those that foster afterschool tutoring and mentorships, food banks and child advocacy groups.
These programs, which make a real difference in the lives of the community’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged, include Girls Write Now (a writing and mentoring program for at-risk and underserved girls in New York City), the Houston Food Bank, Top Honors (a program offering free math tutoring to middle school students in New York City), the Houston Children’s Festival (benefitting Child Advocates and the abused and neglected children it serves) and the Daily Bread Food Bank (which distributes food through more than 200 food banks and meal programs across Toronto).

Stay tuned in the coming months for information on new initiatives, as the Foundation’s reach continues to grow.
