Tempe resident Ed Baker honored for his volunteerism

In honor of the hundreds of Salt River Project employees who devote thousands of hours to worthy causes, six employees have been chosen to receive the SRP Presidents’ Volunteer Spirit Award.

The award recognizes employees and retirees who are leaders in volunteerism and who serve as examples of the power of caring.

“One of the truly remarkable aspects of the SRP employee family is the unwavering commitment to volunteerism that spans the entire organization,” said SRP President David Rousseau, who added that SRP employees and retirees, with help from their friends and families, donate thousands of volunteer hours a year to their communities. “I’m very proud to be part of a company that has so many employees that give so freely of their time and talent.”

Tempe resident Ed Baker was one of the honorees.

The Tempe Community Action Agency (TCAA) works to alleviate hunger, poverty and homelessness and is a lifeline for the disadvantaged in Tempe and south Scottsdale. For the past 11 years, Ed Baker has volunteered with the TCAA and in that time has served the nonprofit as an event planner, board member and fundraiser, while lending his marketing and digital web expertise to create a new logo and website for the organization.

As a member of the First Crush fundraising committee for the past two years, Baker helped triple contributions for this TCAA signature event. He currently serves as secretary of the TCAA board and is in line to become board president in 2017. Baker is extremely dedicated to this organization and, through personal giving, SRP Dollars for Doers and Ed and Heidi’s TCAA Charity Bocce Tournament, has directly raised or contributed more than $35,000 to benefit the nonprofit.
