Re “Indian Point: Rare look inside a working reactor,” March 30 article:

This article provides several examples of Indian Point’s impact on the Westchester community. Sadly, many people are just now realizing what an important neighbor the plant is and how much we’ll miss it after its 2021 closing.

For more than 40 years, Indian Point has been a generous benefactor to the Westchester County community. Plant employees have contributed thousands of hours in community service and volunteer work. Indian Point’s owner and operator, Entergy, has contributed more than $1 million annually to local recipients, including the American Red Cross, Family Services of Westchester and Putnam Community Action Program.

I’m grateful to Entergy and its Indian Point employees for their long history of service and generosity to the community. Indian Point’s loss will be a blow to these organizations and to Westchester County.
