Alliant Energy retiree Bob Gebert presented a $400 Volunteer Grant check to the Lodi Youth Blue Wave Crew Swim Team program on behalf of Alliant Energy Foundation.
Alliant Energy employees and retirees, between July 01, 2016, and June 30, 2017, tracked 88,157 hours of volunteer time and provided $113,200 in honorary cash grants to support worthwhile causes in Alliant Energy’s hometowns.
The Youth Blue Wave Crew Swim Team is made up of about 80 participants from the Lodi School District. The ages of participants range from 6 years to 18 years of age. The philosophy of the program is to improve the physical health and wellbeing of the participants while learning sportsmanship and teamwork. The program is set up so that no one is ever turned away due financial needs thus helping to provide participation for children who would like to be involved.
