The company aims to raise $1 million annually over the next three years for children's hospitals in the 22 states that Vivint Solar is currently operating.
"Our employees and their families live, work and play in each community where we operate and we've seen first-hand how crucial local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals are in supporting the kids in these areas," said Vivint Solar CEO David Bywater. "Giving back is woven into our culture and is a priority for our staff; we know CMN Hospitals is a great fit for us to support since their work is so important to families, and our products help power families' homes. We look forward to supporting the local children's hospitals as they work to save and improve kids' lives."
Vivint Solar's partnership with CMN Hospitals will kick off this week with an employee fundraising campaign, all funds raised will go directly to 27 children's hospitals, coinciding with areas Vivint Solar serves.
