Making Spirits Bright throughout Upstate New York
On Nov. 30, the cameras rolled as employees decorated Kevin Guest House in Buffalo for the sixth straight year.
National Grid crews throughout upstate New York were once again busy spreading cheer as the holidays approached, climbing ladders and stringing lights as part of annual decorating events with nonprofits.
In Syracuse on Nov. 15, National Grid staff visited Casey’s Place, where the respite services facility was illuminated with sparkling outdoor lighting that featured energy-efficient LEDs in purple, the awareness color for caregiver appreciation.
“National Grid is about giving back to the communities we serve,” said Alberto Bianchetti, National Grid Central New York Regional Executive. “We recognize the impact of Casey’s Place on young people and their families and its tireless work to provide support to those in need. Our volunteers are committed to supporting local charitable organizations like Casey’s Place, and we look forward to future volunteer opportunities to help make our community a better place to live and work.”
Meanwhile on Nov. 30, media in Albany captured footage of our people decorating Ronald McDonald House. On the same day in Buffalo, the cameras were rolling while we decorated Kevin Guest House for the sixth consecutive year.
Ronald McDonald House and Kevin Guest House are similar in that both provide places to stay for families of those who are receiving long-term hospital care.
