VERO BEACH – On Tuesday, March 5th, Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) employees had all hands on deck at the Hibiscus Children’s Village in Vero Beach as part of FPL’s Power to Care Initiative.

The volunteers spent the day completing landscaping projects, cleaning and beautifying the organization’s facilities. The project was one of 27 volunteer efforts that are part of Power to Care Week, now in its 11th year, where more than 1,000 FPL employees tackled community projects in 11 counties throughout Florida.

Volunteers rolled up their sleeves and got their hands dirty to help make the communities they serve even better places to work and raise families.
