Community Involvement

LaSalle aims to be a good neighbor and is active in its surrounding communities.         

  • Sponsorship: LaSalle sponsors several community events and organizations, including Marseilles Fun Day, Grand Ridge Community Festival, local first responders, local food pantries, and Future Farmers of America.
    • Labor of Love: LaSalle Clean Energy Center is a signature sponsor of the United Way Labor of Love each year. This one-day home improvement blitz brings volunteers together to repair and winterize homes of the needy, elderly and disabled. LaSalle Clean Energy Center provides significant financial backing
    • Education: Members from LaSalle Clean Energy Center's Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) band together to bring in approximately 30 local educators to the plant for a day of fun and learning in its Nuke 101 program. The program gives teachers an opportunity to learn STEM-related activities that they can take back and apply in their classrooms.
    • Scholarships: The center also awards $500 scholarships for graduating seniors at Ottawa, Seneca and Streator high schools.
  • Employee Giving & Volunteerism: LaSalle employees give generously to the community through a variety of volunteer activities, including the local United Way campaign. During National Volunteer Month in April, employees organize and participate in community volunteer projects, such as property beautification at a local veterans’ home, rehabilitating a camp for children and creating a veteran memorial wall.
