2010 Low Income Initiative Progress Report

Making Things Brighter

Advocacy Awards Honor Devotion to Improving Lives of Entergy's Customers.

Community service offers little opportunity for glamour, prestige and material things. But the finer things in life-like creating a better quality of live for impoverished elderly retirees, working poor families and disadvantaged kids—are plentiful for advocates who dedicate themselves to making a difference. Low-income customer advocates and volunteers work every day to alleviate the struggle impoverished and working-poor people experience, often with little if any recognition.

Since 2002, Entergy has been acknowledging the contributions of these community change-makers who share the company's advocacy goals with a Making Things Brighter Award. Each year, the company honors individuals and organizations with a small stipend so they may continue the work in which we all benefit. Serving poor families and neighbors and helping them get the resources they need takes a network of professionals devoting their time, talents, funding and faith to improving the communities of which they are a part.
