                  The Duke Energy Foundation is contributing $1.3 million to this unprecedented crisis. Our initial COVID-19 funding is in support of local communities across our seven service territories to provide hunger relief and critical health and human services. Our initial recipient agencies have been identified. As the crisis unfolds, we will evaluate other areas where we can best support our customers, communities and employees.
