An energizing head start

At the beginning of this school year, National Grid teamed up with the Head Start program in Syracuse to provide hundreds of children with backpacks and other school supplies.

The event was led by Anthony Bersani and the Project Management & Complex Construction (PM&CC) Contract Management team. PM&CC employees in New York and New England contributed funds to the effort, which other volunteers used to purchase backpacks and supplies. They assembled and delivered the backpacks on the first day of school, September 6th.

Kate Copani, a representative of Head Start, shared her thoughts on the event,

“We at PEACE, Inc. Head Start in Liverpool were so excited to be given the opportunity to work with the staff at National Grid to provide much needed school supplies to families in our community. From the beginning, Anthony Bersani was so supportive to the needs of our program and working with National Grid was such a positive experience!”
