Keeping in touch with Project New Hope

By Tim Rondeau

Back in November we invited Project New Hope, a Worcester non-profit benefiting veterans, to talk to employees in Reservoir Woods about their mission. In December, we held an “Adopt a Family” drive and collected gifts for the group’s veterans and their families. And just last week, we donated monies collected through the sales of camouflage hard hats, supplied by our Veterans Employee Resource Group (VERG).

Project New Hope relies on donations to help fund retreats offered to veterans coping with the struggles of returning from duty, at no cost.  These retreats focus on a wide variety of subjects including PTSD, substance abuse, brain injury, and care-giving.  They also offer retreats specifically for female veterans and LGBTQ veterans.

Bill Moore, President of Project New Hope and a veteran himself, is grateful for the donation and for the relationship between his organization and National Grid.  The donations help continue Project New Hope’s mission of “helping veterans rebuild their lives with honor.”
