A group of employees at the Exelon Nuclear Generation Cantera Office in Winfield, IL assembled Alyssa Starter Art Kits (SAKs) on Wednesday, November 7, 2018. These Alyssa SAKs will be donated to several local hospitals before the holidays treating children and young adults for cancer and life-threatening diseases. A total of 25 volunteers participated in putting together 210 of Alyssa SAKs. This volunteer effort was led by Nadia Tourjman, Procurement Specialist for Exelon Nuclear and Alyssa Alvin Foundation for Hope (AAFH) volunteer.

Yoli met Nadia while working together at Exelon’s Cantera Office. Nadia has previously supported AAFH events and made a very generous donation from her Exelon volunteer hours and continues to work together with Yoli in supporting AAFH.

A special “Thank You” goes out to Nadia because her support allows AAFH to earn Matching Dollars for each volunteer hour logged. We appreciate Nadia for her dedication to Alyssa’s Foundation.

The Exelon volunteer team completed 70 adult coloring books, 30 drawing kits, 30 journal kits, 40 watercolor kits, 20 acrylic kits and 20 lunch bags for a total of 210 Alyssa Starter Art Kits. Last year, Exelon volunteers prepared fifty Alyssa SAKs for AAFH.

Also, many thanks to our Exelon volunteers:
