The Ripple Effect of Giving NextEra Energy Duane Arnold, LLC truly cares about giving back to the community in a meaningful way, and recently the company is making a big impact at Four Oaks. 

In their third year of participating in the Holiday Project, employees of Duane Arnold purchased gifts for over 100 children in residential treatment at Four Oaks last month. The company solidified their commitment to Four Oaks with a corporate donation of $10,000.00 this month.

“We understand the importance of Four Oaks programs for children and families in Cedar Rapids, and value the impact it has on our community,” says Renee Nelson, manager of communications and public affairs at NextEra Energy Duane Arnold.  "We are very excited to have a strong partnership with Four Oaks and are thrilled to make this contribution."

The company’s philanthropy has had a positive ripple effect, as well: its annual support of the Four Oaks Holiday Project inspired employee Zach Cloe to support Four Oaks through volunteerism. He spends one evening each week with children in residential treatment, playing games and helping with homework. 

Four Oaks is grateful for the generosity of NextEra Energy Duane Arnold, LLC and its employees, and for their support of our mission through in-kind gifts, cash donations and volunteerism. Thank you!
