Entergy Mississippi celebrates 100 years of service in the state
In honor of the celebration the company is donating $100,000 to Extra Table
JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Entergy Mississippi is in the spotlight celebrating 100 years of service. To commemorate a century of work in the state, Entergy is donating $100,000 to Extra Table.
Meals of red beans and rice will also be part of a year-long effort by Entergy to invest in poverty solutions. Entergy volunteers packed 2,500 boxes of red beans, rice, and spices - one to represent every employee in the state. The meals are being donated to Extra Table’s pantries.
Entergy Mississippi President and CEO, Haley Fisackerly, says the company will also give special attention to families in the Mississippi Delta impacted by deadly tornadoes and the long road ahead for their recovery.
“These communities are our partners. Our employees live in those areas. They’re our customers,” Fisackerly said. “They are a very part of the fabric of this company that’s grown over a hundred years and that’s why we’re doing an event like this today to partner with Extra Table to help feed a hundred thousand families in Mississippi. Those impacted by storms and those that are also dealing with difficult economic times.”
As part of the 100-year celebration, Entergy will stock 62 food pantries in the state and the company is teaming with Extra Table to pack meals for families impacted by food insecurity.
