For third straight year, National Grid sponsored a back-to-school event for children who attended City of Buffalo summer camps.

The Troy Frear Park Conservancy held an ice cream social for about 300 kids in their summer program with a $500 donation from National Grid's Brian Sano.

National Grid, inspired by the Girls Inc. summer camp theme of “teamwork” has created the F.I.T. (Females in Trades) Challenge for the Girls Inc. girls at the Albany location as part of their summer camp activities.
