Our community team and volunteers are staying active in the community this month with outreach and sponsorships for a variety of nonprofit organizations’ events.

This past weekend, TEP sponsored Evening of Play to benefit the Children’s Museum Tucson and the fall brunch for Youth on their Own. Our LGBTQ+ Resource Group participated in the Pride Festival on Saturday and the Pride Parade on Friday night.

TEP is supporting Domestic Violence Awareness Month and related activities by Emerge Center Against Domestic Abuse, including Wear Purple Day on Oct. 20.
