Enterprise Rent-A-Car Vice President Brett Bittel and Director of Community and Government Affairs Fred Abdelnour are joined by Award-Winning Actress Cicely Tyson and thanked for generous support at 2011 MMF Benefit Dinner

Enterprise Rent-A-Car serves as a major supporter of the MMF 2013 Leadership Development Institute, which affords young adults access to State-of-the-Art leadership training, employment skills training, mentoring and other support aiming to transition them from the classroom to the workplace. The company not only provides $10,000.00 in financial support annually, but also commits company volunteers from Enterprise to support program training service delivery by administering select employment and core leadership competency skills trainings.

Founded in 1957, Enterprise Rent-A-Car is an internationally recognized brand with more than 6,000 neighborhood and airport locations in the United States, Canada, the U.K., Ireland and Germany. Through tremendous leadership and the entrepreneurial spirit of our employees, we have built the largest car rental brand in North America, known for exceptionally low rates and outstanding customer service. Today, Enterprise Rent-A-Car offers a wide variety of car leasing, vanpooling, car sharing and hourly rental programs - and local car rental customers are picked up at no extra cost.

Unlike our competitors, we have always operated through an extensive network of local, neighborhood offices, each powered by the energy of a small, highly entrepreneurial team. The concept grew from humble beginnings: the basement of a St. Louis car dealership with a small team of bright, ambitious colleagues fielding phone calls, calculating rates and washing cars. Our first customers were the ones who really shaped the business model that we use today. They told us they wanted to rent cars where they live and work. As we built Enterprise, one neighborhood at a time over the years, we also built strong relationships with the people who call those communities home, and it is because of those relationships that we have achieved unprecedented growth.

For more than half a century, we have worked to be an engaged corporate citizen that makes a real difference in the communities where we live and work. Our company's foundation has contributed more than $200 million to thousands of local non-profits focused on community improvement, education and environmental stewardship. And, each year our employees contribute their time and skills to thousands of national and local organizations in the areas we serve. Perhaps the biggest way we give back is by addressing the parts of the world touched by our business. Over the years, we have built our industry's most comprehensive environmental stewardship platform, which focuses on addressing the impact of our fleet and ensuring the future sustainability of our business

Today's Southern California Edison is the product of more than a century of providing reliable electric service to central, coastal and southern California.

We help our customers stretch their energy dollars through rebates, which they can receive through SCE's award-winning energy efficiency programs. Customers can receive incentives for helping to control power demand through "demand-response" programs, which help to keep wholesale supplies and prices under control.

As part of our commitment to environmental protection, the electric power we provide for our customers includes more alternate and renewable energy (16.7%), from a greater variety of resources, than nearly any other utility in the world. We have been active in efforts to improve Southern California air quality since the 1940s.

SCE is also an active donor to community and educational causes. SCE employee volunteers annually donate more than 700,000 hours of work to community and non-profit organizations.

SCE's ethnically and culturally diverse customer base contains one of the largest concentrations of non-English speaking residents in California.
