Liberty Utilities Employees Make the Holidays Brighter for Compton Youth

In addition to delivering safe and reliable water service, Liberty Utilities demonstrates its commitment to the communities and residents it serves through responsive, local involvement. In keeping with this philosophy, the company’s Liberty Days initiative provides employees with three paid days annually to participate in charitable activities and volunteer in their communities.

During the last weeks of 2017, employees joined Los Angeles Fire Department personnel in Compton, CA, at the Spark of Love Toy Drive benefitting foster children served by Compton’s Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). On November 30, Liberty Utilities bought $10,000 worth of toys, which employees loaded into buses on December 1 for transport to DCFS. The televised Stuff-a-Bus event exemplified Liberty Utilities’ commitment to give back to residents in its Compton service area. On December 16, employees distributed the toys at the Liberty Days holiday event at DCFS, which was attended by hundreds of children and their families.

“At Liberty Utilities, we strongly encourage our employees to promote the company’s values by taking part in community events or activities that involve our customers. The Spark of Love Toy Drive is a perfect fit that resonates with our employees,” said Liberty Utilities President Greg Sorenson. “We have taken part in this initiative for more than 15 years because our employees want to ensure the children in our Compton service area have a happy holiday season.”
