As students returned to classrooms, volunteers with the Alabama Power Service Organization (APSO) were a step ahead of them, supporting back-to-school projects statewide. The volunteers helped students, their families and school systems by lending their muscle to support a range of activities, from school supply drives and giveaways to campus fix-ups and cleaning projects.
“APSO volunteers lay the foundation for students to pay it forward by fostering the development of critically thinking adults who will provide the same support for future generations,” said Amanda Lofton, APSO State Board president and member of the Plant Barry APSO chapter in southwest Alabama.
APSO is a nonprofit organization made up of employees of Alabama Power and Alabama-based employees of Southern Company and Southern Nuclear. With nine chapters across the state, APSO volunteers devote more than 25,000 hours of service each year to support education, protect the environment and improve Alabama communities.
