Constellation Energy Kids focus on giving back this holiday season

Constellation Energy Kids recently came together to make philanthropy and community outreach a priority this holiday season by designing a tree for Kennedy Krieger Institute’s annual Festival of Trees. Proceeds from Festival of Trees benefit the Kennedy Krieger Institute, appropriately marking the beginning of the holiday season by giving the gift of hope to the thousands of children treated at the Institute.

Eleven Constellation Energy Kids and eight adults gathered to decorate the 7-foot tree, themed as The Giving Tree. The tree display featured more than 75 adult and child “gift bags” stuffed with travel size essentials like toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs, shampoo and conditioner. The tree was also wrapped in twinkle lights and hand-cut garland in the shape of people holding hands, symbolizing the act of giving.  Each child was able to decorate a few of the people to give a personal touch.

The Constellation Energy Kids’ Giving Tree was on display at the Kennedy Krieger Festival of Trees at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium from Nov. 26 – 28. Afterward, the tree was donated to Sarah’s Hope, a shelter run by St. Vincent de Paul that offers support services to homeless women and their children. Photos of the event and tree can be viewed here.

Constellation Energy Kids is a monthly volunteer program that allows Constellation Energy employees opportunities to volunteer in the community with their children. Stay tuned for future updates regarding Constellation Energy Kids’ initiatives, we have more exciting news to come!
