WILLIAMSPORT, Md., Dec. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — More than 100 less fortunate children in Washington County will enjoy a brighter Christmas this year, thanks to the efforts of Potomac Edison employees in partnership with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve. Employees at Potomac Edison’s regional headquarters donated about 150 new, unwrapped toys to the Marines’ local Toys for Tots collection.
“I appreciate the support received from all our employees, including the members of Utility Workers Union of America (UWUA) Local 102.
