NES Completes First of 75 Acts with Thanksgiving Donation

To commemorate its 75 anniversary, Nashville Electric Service (NES) completed the first of 75 acts of service in the community. As part of a year-long pledge to give back, a Thanksgiving food drive was organized by employees in NES’ Customer Relations Department for the utility’s adopted school, Glenn Enhanced Option Elementary.

Donated items were used to make 45 food boxes with everything necessary to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal, including one ham or turkey, three boxes of stuffing, four cans of green beans, four cans of corn, two cans of yams, two cans of cranberry sauce and four boxes of mac and cheese. The food boxes were delivered by NES employees to the school on Thursday.

“Our employees have shown a service mindset in their jobs and within the community,” said Decosta Jenkins, NES president & CEO. “Our 75 acts of service initiative is a fitting way to celebrate their contributions and the commitment of NES to serve its neighbors.”
