With nearly $1 million in annual giving and hundreds of hours of volunteerism, it’s clear Idaho Power employees care deeply for their communities — and one recent donation hits especially close to home.
As they considered organizations to receive corporate contributions and Employee Community Funds (ECF) this spring, Regional Manager Brent Lulloff and Program Specialist Shawn Lovewell — who serves as President for ECF in Elmore and Ada counties — teamed up to support an organization whose mission is dear to the hearts of many at Idaho Power: the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS).
In recent years, Idaho Power employee Steve Petrie and retiree Dave Matlock passed away from these diseases. Their wives, Dana Petrie and Patty Matlock, remain close members of the Idaho Power family. Idaho Power Key Account Energy Advisor Steve Floyd also manages a leukemia diagnosis. Lulloff and Lovewell pooled their funds and awarded LLS a total of $5,400 to support the local chapter and its Light the Night annual fundraiser, happening Oct. 13 in Boise.
“LLS is a great organization, and with so many ties to our Idaho Power family, we wanted to give back and help people in our community whose lives are touched by these diseases,” Lulloff said.
