Two Arlington non-profits are getting a cool $5,000 apiece thanks to a round of charitable donations by Dominion.

The energy company announced $2 million in donations yesterday to help the homeless and aid families in need.

Arlington affordable housing outfit AHC, Inc. and at-risk women’s shelter Doorways for Women and Families both accepted the donations at a press conference in Reston.

“Dominion wants to help our friends and neighbors who are encountering hardships during the current recession,” CEO Thomas F. Farrell II said in a statement. “Housing-related organizations and programs are facing increased demand for their services, while their own budgets are stretched thin… We are working to help ensure that safe, warm shelter is available to those in need.”

    I wonder if they used the money they extracted from companies whose sales pitches I had to endure during a 15 minute phone call to simply sign up for electricity at the house I just bought, followed by phone calls to my cell phone from companies to sell me related services. Kind of a shady business practice for a government-endorsed monopoly (not to mention the whole mountaintop coal removal thing).
