“Thanks for Giving” Thanksgiving

By Ben Campbell

thanks-for-giving-turkeyThis year, our traditional “Thanks for Giving” campaign stretched all over National Grid’s territory, supporting communities from Buffalo to Boston to Brentwood. We raised more than $10,000 and were able to provide supermarket gift cards to more than 400 families in need.

This year’s campaign, our 10th, featured events all across our territory. Our Shared Services team sponsored a “Penny and Coin Wars” fundraiser that had employees decorating turkey buckets and stuffing turkeys full of coins (to be distributed to families in need on Thanksgiving). Other teams donated supermarket gift cards to various food banks and other hunger relief organizations. Much of the money was raised through a paper turkey fundraiser: buy a paper turkey, and help neighbors in need.
