EPCOR gives $50,000 to COVID-19 fund

Water company makes donation to AZ Coronavirus Relief Fund


EPCOR is giving more support for people impacted by COVID-19 in Arizona with a $50,000 contribution to the AZ Coronavirus Relief Fund.

The water company provides service to about one-third of Surprise residents.

“Supporting our communities is the heart of what we do and that is, perhaps, more vital than ever before,” said Joe Gysel, President of EPCOR USA. “The COVID-19 pandemic has had a tragic and far-reaching impact on our state, and we are honored to be able to support Gov. [Doug] Ducey’s AZ Coronavirus Relief Fund and help Arizona #ReturnStronger together.”

With this support, EPCOR joins major Arizona employers and philanthropists in providing critical funds needed to combat COVID-19’s impact on public health and wellness, including medical professionals and first responders on the front line of this crisis, and the state’s most vulnerable residents.

“Arizonans have continued to stand together and help each other these last few months,” Gov. Doug Ducey said. “Arizona is focused on supporting those in need — protecting the vulnerable, expanding access to nutritious meals, providing PPE to medical professionals and more — and this generous donation strengthens those efforts. Thank you to EPCOR and all our partners for supporting Arizonans as we work to return stronger.”  

EPCOR’s $50,000 donation to the AZ Coronavirus Relief Fund is the latest step taken by the company to support Arizonans affected by COVID-19. Since March 2020, EPCOR has offered bill payment assistance for customers whose employment has been disrupted or who have been hospitalized due to COVID-19.

“The AZ Coronavirus Relief Fund Committee is very grateful for this significant donation from EPCOR,” said committee chair Eileen Klein. “We are proud to play a role in supporting Arizonans statewide who are most in need during this pandemic. Thank you to the entire EPCOR team for your leadership and generosity.”
