The TVA Region Community
A friend in TVA
“It’s fun to help other people,” says Gil Francis (above) of TVA Communications. “You get a great sense of satisfaction working on a project where you can see the results of your work and know it’s going to be a home for a deserving family that’s working right alongside you.”
The people of TVA share a common determination to make life better in the TVA region. TVA volunteers help build Habitat for Humanity houses to give families a brighter future. They donate their time, money, supplies, and equipment to support 79 schools in the region that are members of TVA’s Partners in Education network. Overall, in 2006 TVA employees donated more than 26,000 hours of volunteer service and nearly $4 million in cash and in-kind services.
TVA is more than the massive dams that harness the river and more than the soaring transmission lines that carry affordable and reliable power to the people of our region. TVA is a family of people who go to work every day helping to make a difference in our communities and the lives of others.
