Pacific Gas and Electric was recognized as corporate citizen of the year by the San Mateo Police Activities League’s annual Lights and Sirens Awards and Recognition event Friday, March 7.

The award was accepted by Papia Gambelin, the company’s Corporate Affairs director for the Central Coast region, which includes the Peninsula.

The award recognizes PAL partners who provided major support for youth programs, such as the G.R.E.A.T. program that has brought uniformed officers to middle-school classrooms in the San Mateo-Foster City Elementary School District. The 13-week program teaches positive decision-making and other skills to young teens.


For the seventh consecutive year, J.D. Power ranked Kaiser Permanente highest in customer satisfaction for California, according to a study released this week.
