April is National Volunteer Month and Entergy is celebrating in the best possible way, by giving back.
A new program at Grambling State University that seeks to address the representation of minorities in the technology field is off to a strong start, thanks to support from Entergy and a group of its employees volunteering as student mentors this semester.
Entergy recognized the first EmPOWERing Pro Bono Day by connecting pro bono attorneys and resources with nearly 200 residents of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
Last week, Entergy partnered with The American Heart Association as the title sponsor for STEM Goes Red – an annual event aimed to inspire and engage young women to consider careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, or STEM.
Through the program, the business has replaced almost 400 light bulbs with brand-new LED bulbs and installed smart thermostats.
Entergy recently hosted Dillard University faculty, staff and students, and other Historically Black College and University leaders from across Louisiana during The New Orleans' Pelicans HBCU event at the Smoothie King Center.
Entergy volunteers helped pack over 200,000 meals for Louisiana food banks.
The United Way of Southeast Louisiana reopened the J. Wayne Leonard Prosperity Center at 2402 Canal Street in New Orleans, one block away from its original location, after the building sustained significant water damage during Hurricane Ida and left staff to provide appointment-only services.
Entergy's supply chain organization this year donated more than 8,000 cases of hand and surface sanitizing liquid, spray and wipes, valued at nearly $700,000.
