Fulton, NY– The employees of National Grid recently completed their workplace campaign in support of the United Way of Greater Oswego County. Employee donations of more than $4,000, combined with a corporate match from National Grid, resulted in a $9,708 donation to United Way’s 2016-2017 Annual Campaign. National Grid annually supports United Way through its workplace campaign that allows employees to donate and/or volunteer their time for a worthy cause. National Grid has been a United Way partner for several years and is a major sponsor for the Annual United Way Golf Tournament.
“Walter Dengos, community and customer manager for National Grid is a great advocate for us as a member of our Board of Directors” said United Way Resource Development Director Ali McGrath. “National Grid’s involvement with us has been a large support system throughout the years. We would not be able to help individuals and families in the community without the help of companies like National Grid.”
In addition to the donation for United Way’s annual campaign Dengos presented McGrath with a second check for $2,500 to benefit the Annual United Way Golf Tournament. National Grid is one of the major sponsors of this year’s tournament, which will be held Monday, July 10 at the Oswego County Club.
The tournament will have two flights, 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. and offers a full day of fun for a good cause. The tournament, which is the United Way’s largest fundraiser, will host up to 50 teams and features a 4 person team captain and crew format.
“We greatly appreciate our continued partnership with National Grid through the Annual Golf Tournament. With companies like National Grid as a major sponsor, it allows us to make the proceeds from our largest fundraising event reach further into the community and help those in need.”
