National Grid Donates $155,000 to United Way to Help With Fuel Costs

Tuesday, January 13, 2015

 

On Monday, the United Way of Central Massachusetts announced they had received a donation of $155,000 from National Grid. The gift will go towards Worcester Community Action Council’s Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program. This program helps low-income families with heating costs during the winter.

Worcester City Manager Ed Augustus said, ““Given the recent frigid weather, this donation could not have come at a better time for Worcester residents, some of whom are facing the devastating choice between heating their homes and putting food on the table. I applaud National Grid for their generous and timely donation.  I thank the Worcester Community Action Council for continuing to look after those who need the most help, and the United Way of Central Massachusetts, who are always among the first to step up when there is any need in our community.”

James Leary, United Way Chairman  of the Board and Vice Chancellor for Community and Government Relations at UMass Medical School said, “Thank you to National Grid for its leadership and generosity.  Many members of our community confront very real financial challenges to adequately heat their homes, and this funding will provide critical assistance to them in their time of need.”

‘Carmella,’ a Worcester Community Action Council client, said “I had a great life, house, estate, property, great marriage, husband -I had it all and everything was gone when I got injured.  No house, no husband, no food, no heat, no place to live.  I had never, ever before received help and then you helped me to keep myself warm in the winter.”

Ed White, vice president of Customer Strategy and Environment for National Grid explains, “National Grid is part of the communities we serve and we are committed to helping our customers.  We are very proud to be a major supporter of the United Way and are especially pleased to support the Worcester Community Action Council in assisting so many of our customers with their energy costs.”
