National Grid Employees Pitch in for Earth Day in New York, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island

April 21, 2017

WALTHAM, MASS. – April is Earth Month, and National Grid continues its annual commitment by sponsoring Earth Day events throughout our service territory of New York, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. This year we have over 600 volunteers participating in 19 community activities throughout the month in all three states.

These efforts will help revitalize local communities served by the company, give back to the community, and promote protecting the environment. Click here to find an event near you.

“I am always excited and proud to see our company’s volunteer efforts in our communities through our Power to Serve program,” said Dean Seavers, president of National Grid US.” Earth Day at National Grid is about community, but also a big part of the larger responsibility we have in the energy industry. We must find ways to transition to a clean energy future so that our children have a healthy environment for generations to come.”
