Ameren Co-Workers Love Their Local Libraries!
Camden County Library District is happy to announce that the Osage Beach Branch of the Library District has been awarded $2,000 in grant monies through Ameren’s Love Your Libraries program. These monies will be used to promote literacy and provide essential community resources.
Ameren and its co-workers, through their Love Your Libraries initiative, have awarded $200,000 in grants to 100 public libraries throughout Ameren’s Missouri and Illinois territories. Grants have been awarded to libraries nominated by local Ameren co-workers. In their nominations, Ameren co-workers may have noted how their local libraries fostered their love of reading or how their children love to visit the library and how those visits have built up their early literacy skills.
“Part of our AmerenCares mission is to advance institutions such as public libraries that create thriving communities,” said Gwen Mizell, senior vice president, chief sustainability, diversity, & philanthropy officer at Ameren. “From educational workshops to internet access to toddler storytimes to a cool place to gather on the hottest days, libraries play a vital role in connecting the community and opening pathways to opportunity,”
The Ameren Corporation Charitable Trust was established in 1944 to serve as a principal source of the company’s philanthropic investments in community projects and programs. Allocations from the Trust’s AmerenCares program come entirely from corporate earnings.
