Georgia Power Employees from Plant McDonough Continue to Support Coweta County tornado victims

When a tornado tore through much of Newnan and Coweta County in March, it left widespread damage across the community just south of Atlanta. Georgia Power employees from the Citizens of Georgia Power – the employee volunteer arm of the company – Plant McDonough chapter in Cobb County are supporting local residents by sending supplies to Newnan. This is the second time that employees from the plant in Smyrna have supported the community.

Additionally, employees from across the metro area have played an active role in clean up and the power restoration process immediately following the storm.

With more than 40 chapters statewide, Citizens of Georgia Power gives back to their local communities through in-person and virtual volunteer projects, fundraisers, and donations. In 2020, Citizens’ members logged more than 55,000 hours of service equal to $1.5 million.
