Debbi Jarvis Elected Metropolitan Board Chair
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Debbi Jarvis, vice president of Corporate Citizenship and Social Responsibility of Pepco Holdings, Inc. (PHI), is the new board chair of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington (BGCGW). Jarvis has served on the board since 2011 and previously led its Resource Development Committee.
Jarvis’ connection with the local Greater Washington community began when she was a news anchor and reporter with Washington’s NBC-4.
"I had the opportunity to hear directly from those in the community and to help them tell their stories -- all in an effort to help make a difference,” Jarvis said. “Many were school-age children. I believe in the work that the BGCGW does because I've seen the need and the work firsthand."
“It is with the greatest pleasure that my team and I welcome Debbi Jarvis to this critical leadership role,’ said Pandit Wright, BGCGW president and CEO. “She is a tireless and selfless champion with a deep-rooted and demonstrated belief in service.”
At PHI, Jarvis and her team develop strategies around corporate goodwill in the communities served by PHI and its three operating utilities. Working closely with the region presidents for Pepco, Delmarva Power and Atlantic City Electric, Jarvis builds on PHI’s ongoing philanthropic efforts and oversees the development of CSR goals, policies, partnerships and programs for the company.
Her role as the board chair for BGCGW is an extension of her genuine passion for community engagement and further exemplifies Pepco’s long time support of BGCGW.
