Investing in the communities we serve and love is very important to us at Pennsylvania American Water. We believe when we invest and volunteer at our local schools and nonprofit organizations, we are all stronger. In 2022, we invested more than $1.16 million in communities through general charitable contributions, grants, sponsorships and programming support to approximately 330 organizations. Making an impact across the state is one more way we help keep life flowing!
