American Red Cross
As part of our commitment to the communities where we live and work, Duke Energy supports the Red Cross. Regularly scheduled blood drives provide the opportunity for employees to help individuals when they are most vulnerable, making this life-saving resource available for times of need. We also stand behind the Red Cross during crisis efforts, providing donations that help bring relief to victims around the world like during Hurricane Katrina.
Duke Energy was honored in 2006 by the Greater Carolinas Chapter of the American Red Cross with the prestigious Circle of Humanitarians award, the organizationís highest award. The company was recognized for its financial assistance and for the volunteer commitment demonstrated by employees and retirees who give their time year round to many Red Cross chapters across the country.
