North Creek National Grid has awarded a $2,000 grant to North Country Ministry, an outreach organization serving families in need in rural Warren County.
"The work that North Country Ministry is doing to provide counseling and assistance in the rural communities of Warren County is much appreciated," said William Flaherty, National Grid Director of Customer and Community Management. "National Grid is pleased to continue our support of those efforts with this donation to the Emergency Assistance Fund."
National Grid has helped North Country Ministry in the past by meeting the emergency energy needs of families in distress. As the prices of fuel for homes and the gas tank go up, the prices of basic necessities such as food and clothing are even more difficult for low income families who have stretched their resources. North Country Ministry sees more local families using their services for emergency needs, visiting the Clothing Center and making use of the Gathering Place lunch programs.
“North Country Ministry is grateful for the support offered by National Grid. Our Emergency Assistance Fund provides short term help with basic life needs such as food, clothing, gasoline, auto repairs and heating fuel in the winter months,” said Jill Harrington, Executive Director.
