PSEG Long Island Employees Fulfill Holiday Wishes for More than 100 Children
More than 120 PSEG Long Island co-workers fulfilled holiday wishes for 105 Suffolk County children enrolled in the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program. Gifts included bikes, tablets, video games, toys, games, dolls, action figures, clothes, sneakers and much more – several hundred gifts in all. Once again, social distancing protocols required that the gifts be sent directly by employees to the Salvation Army’s Riverhead headquarters for distribution. A handful of PSEG Long Island employees were on hand to help pass out the goodies and load clients’ vehicles the week before Christmas.
The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program serves Long Island children from newborn to 16 years old, relying on the support of individual donors, companies and organizations to fulfill the wish lists of children and families in need. During the past eight years, PSEG Long Island employees have donated presents to more than 1,200 families who live in the company’s service area. It’s just one of the many ways in which the company gives back to the community.
PSEG Long Island is committed to giving back to the people and communities it serves by actively supporting hundreds of local charity events each year through the company’s Community Partnership Program. In 2019, before the pandemic halted the company’s hands-on community service, PSEG Long Island employees logged more than 30,000 service hours, volunteering at 1,045 fundraising and community events to support more than 500 organizations.
