Coram Family Puts their Green Thumbs to Work Helping their Community
(UNIONDALE, N.Y. – Aug, 15, 2023) Coram residents Monica Freyberg and her 17-year-old son Aidan joined a group of Monica’s PSEG Long Island colleagues one recent evening to volunteer at ECLI-VIBES in Islandia. The group built and painted garden boxes made from pallets and reclaimed wood for the organization to use to grow fruits, herbs and vegetables for the community.
For the Freybergs, this community service project was personal.
“We volunteered because I am an abuse survivor and my family and I understand firsthand how worthy and important the support is for these individuals in our community."
- Monica Freyberg, PSEG Long Island
“When it happened to me, I was young and on my own and I didn’t know of anywhere I could go for help. I know how scary it was for me; and at times I felt hopeless. I felt it important to share my experience with my son. Through our volunteerism with ECLI-VIBES, he realizes how fortunate he is to have the home life, stability and all the resources that we have that others may not. This organization provides an invaluable asset to victims of violence and we are glad that we are able to support them.”
Since 1976, ECLI-VIBES (vibesli.org) has been helping victims of violence by providing counseling, advocacy, legal services, medical services, housing and an array of other support services.
Community service is part of PSEG Long Island’s core commitments. This project is an example of how its employees support the causes and issues they care about and those that affect their neighbors throughout the year.
