When Cascade Office Manager Stephanie Stacey stopped for gas before heading to work this morning, she met several crews from Consumers Energy—and took the time to thank each one.

“I was in awe of what they’ve done over the past few days, so I wondered how we could pay it forward,” Stephanie explained.

After an hour and a few calls to colleagues and business partners, Stephanie delivered 100 Nothing Bundt Cakes and hot coffee to the main Kent County hub of Consumers Energy.

Their staff was thrilled, as many of them have been working without time to go home since Wednesday.

“We have 250 crews of 2-5 people dispatched right now working to get power restored,” said Guy Packard, vice president of electrical operations. “This gesture to say ‘thank you’ to each of them means more than you could know.”

“When I think of how many of the employees and their families are affected personally when Mother Nature throws us a curve ball, I knew we had to do something to bring a smile,” said Stephanie. “My home is now warm because of them, and so is our workplace!

“Thank you, Consumers Energy!”
