SDG&E Employees Give Back to the Community

The people of SDG&E are deeply invested in our communities. We work, live, and play in San Diego and south Orange County communities, and we share the goal of making those communities better places. SDG&E employees volunteer their time and talent to support hundreds of different causes in the community. The SDG&E Environmental All-Stars and SDG&E Challenge Grant programs are just a couple of examples of how giving back is a top priority to the people of SDG&E.
