ATC Interns dig in for Day of Action to support United Way

ATC interns enjoyed giving back to the community at Green Power Garden in Waukesha, Wis.

ATC interns enjoyed giving back to the community at Green Power Garden in Waukesha, Wis.

Interns from American Transmission Co. joined 700 others for an Intern Day of Action to benefit the United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County. Forty ATC interns volunteered to help with garden maintenance, picking and planting at Green Power Garden. The garden primarily provides fresh vegetables and fruit to guests of the Hope Center, an organization that serves people in need in Waukesha County, Wis., sharing surplus harvest with the Food Pantry of Waukesha.

Here is what our interns had to say about the experience:

“Participating in the Intern Day of Action was a rewarding experience … It brought us all together, and for a great cause!  I am proud to have Lived United … and to know that what we did will help to make a difference once the produce is harvested in autumn.” – Whitney C., project engineering intern

“The Intern Day of Action was a great way to connect with the community through ATC. It was wonderful to see the impact we made at the end of the day and to know that we were helping people in need.  Being a part of ATC’s presence in the community was a very fun and rewarding experience.” – Eden W., EMS intern

“I’d say that the best part about it was being able to get some time outside the office to really feel like we were making a difference … It also felt like a very unique way to give back to the community which made me enjoy it personally.” – Noah F., information management analyst intern

The Intern Day of Action was a great opportunity for our employees to help support the United Way.
