A Special Canyon of Heroes

By Karen Young

Our Gas Field Ops team was honored with a special Canyon of Heroes procession on Kings Highway in Brooklyn as part of The Learning Experience early education center’s Essential Worker Appreciation Week. 

The Learning Experience held a week-long celebration to thank essential workers for their service during the COVID-19 pandemic.  National Grid workers kicked off the celebration on May 11.  Dave Ballinger, Gas Field Ops, coordinated a convoy of National Grid vehicles for a truck parade. 

As the vehicles rolled down the street, past the pre-school – horns honking, lights blinking — the children and teachers cheered in delight waving hand-made signs expressing their appreciation.

The Learning Experience is providing on-site child care to the children of essential healthcare and first responders who are critical to the community response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
