Ameren Steps Forward to Prevent Abuse

Ameren Illinois is doing its part to help the young people in central Illinois recognize, respond to and report bullying. Senior Vice President of Regulatory Affairs, Craig Nelson, will present a check for $22,000 to The Center for Prevention of Abuse in order to expand its work in local schools and day care settings.

Mr. Nelson states, “The Center has been very effective in helping nearly 20,000 students learn to keep their bodies safe, solve problems in a positive way and build healthy relationships. If Ameren can play any part in stopping the bullying or abuse of children, we will know that we’ve made a difference in our community. ”

The check presentation will be Tuesday, June 25, 2pm at The Center for Prevention of Abuse, 420 Joan Court, Peoria, IL.

Executive Director of The Center, Martha Herm, says, “I hope Ameren’s leadership will be an inspiration to other organizations to step forward to prevent abuse. Our homes, schools, neighborhoods and workplaces can become safer when everyone is more respectful towards others. We forget that some children aren’t taught those values and skills at home, so The Center is doing its best to fill that gap. We truly appreciate the generous contribution of Ameren to enhance our programming.”
