Xcel Energy Day of Service

Xcel: Welcome to our 11th annual Day of Service in Colorado. Day of Service began in 2010 to honor the anniversary of September 11 and has grown to be Xcel Energy’s largest single-day company volunteer effort. Day of Service is September 9-11 and we are offering a mix of in-person and remote volunteer projects. Volunteer projects during the work week are eligible for VPTO. Xcel Energy employees, family and friends are invited to participate, so choose a project or projects (yes, you can sign up for in-person and take home projects) that work with your schedule and comfort level!

Community Partner Chat: Plume

One of the most rewarding aspects of our community engagement work is the opportunity to partner with many non-profit organizations and support innovative programs that help advance the diverse communities we serve.  In May 2020, we launched our Verizon Community Partnerships Initiative to celebrate community organizations supported by Verizon and highlight their important work. 

Today, we feature Jerrica Kirkley, MD, Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer, Plume.

Below we share an inspiring conversation with Jerrica about empowering individuals with gender-affirming care through digital health services.
