Community Involvement

SJE Supports Community Programs

SJE believes that supporting social, educational and ethical programs in the community will help create a better life for community members in the short and long term.  The company supports such programs through its Charitable Fund, SJE Foundation, and SJE Foundation Scholarship Programs.

In addition, the company encourages employees to volunteer in their communities by allowing employees to use “flex-time” or PTO (Paid Time Off) during regular work hours to support community service events.  Employees representing SJE may be paid for the time they are performing community service work when asked to do so on behalf of the company.
