The United Way of Will County recently recognized Midwest Generation with the Frank Turk Sr. Outstanding Campaign Achievement Award given to companies with a workplace contributions and volunteerism campaign that exemplifies Mr. Turk’s spirit and loyalty. Turk was a longtime member of the Joliet community and a faithful volunteer of the United Way of Will County for more than 70 years. Will County Station’s Elsie Briette and Jim DiCola, representing Joliet Station, accepted the award.
“Over the decades of support, [Midwest Gen] committees have incorporated everything from volunteer days of caring, chili cook-offs, bake-offs, hot breakfast buffets, and incentive gifts for employee participation,” said Sarah Oprzedek, development director for UW Will County. Midwest Generation has more than 400 employees working out of three locations in Will County, including the Will County Station in Romeoville, the Joliet Station and the Bolingbrook office.
