Tucson Electric Power will honor the significant economic influence of nonprofit businesses in our community during the virtual Tucson Metro Chamber’s Copper Cactus Awards on Oct. 17.

As major assistance providers in Southern Arizona, nonprofit organizations employ many workers and support other local businesses. This year in particular, COVID-19 has drastically affected these agencies.

Six organizations are finalists for the TEP Social Impact awards – a category that TEP sponsors to honor the importance of these groups in our region, both as employers and advocates.
