- 2018-2019 Rt. 53 Road Upgrade
- In 2017, the Longview Power management team began meeting with the WV Department of Highways in an effort to address the rapidly deteriorating road of Route 53, specifically Fort Martin hill to the plant. In conjunction with WV DOH approvals and plans, repairs to the Rt. 53 began Summer of 2018 and continued in 2019 with base road repairs, culvert cleaning and replacements, and placement of turning lanes for the Crafts Run Road intersection. These repairs and upgrades were completed in October 2019, and the WV State Division of Transportation completed a top coat of the pavement in November 2019.
- “Back to School Bash” Support
- Since its inception in 2018, Longview employees have held a school supply donation to support the Back to School Bash, hosted by the Pantry Plus More. This outreach allows any student enrolled in a Monongalia County school to engage in a “back to school” shopping experience, free of charge, and allows them freedom to choose their school supply needs, including backpacks, notebooks, calculators, pencils, pens, etc. This outreach also includes free haircuts, dental exams, and a mobile food giveaway.
- Between 2018 – 2020, Longview employees have raised almost $8,000 for this outreach.
