Tampa Electric worked with the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay to establish a charitable fund to assist the families affected by the incident at Big Bend Power Station on June 29.
“We have seen such an incredible outpouring of support from our employees and the community,” said Gordon Gillette, president and chief executive officer of Tampa Electric. “This fund will directly help the families touched by this tragic incident.”
TECO provided an initial contribution to open the TECO Family Relief Fund and will cover administrative charges. All subsequent donations will go 100 percent to the affected families, and, additionally TECO will match contributions. The fund is available at www.cftampabay.org/tecofamilyrelief.
